Welcome !

Early Childhood Center-School Year 2016-2017

"Play is the highest expression of human development."
Welcome to The One School At Temple Beth Am, Celebrating the Whole Child. We understand and respect that every child is essentially, ‘the one.’ Every child is unique. The specifics of how we nurture and grow each child are dependent entirely upon the needs of the child. This is how we celebrate each child - by engaging him or her at his or her point of need. The One School partners with every parent to ensure every child is championed and educated as an individual.

The One School is a NAEYC Accredited, Reggio Emilia Nature-inspired school, serving ages 18 months to five years. The One School offers certified teachers, a low student/teacher ratio, an emergent creative curriculum and specialty areas of study including science, art, music, foreign language and nature study. The One School’s curricula are supplemented by young family programs and parenting workshops, an infant and toddler program, Family Center, Summer Camp, after school enrichment classes and an active and instrumental Parent Teacher Organization. A commitment to contribute to the community and the world at large is also a part of the school’s social justice philosophy.

Sh'ma at Bedtime

Ritual is an important part of what holds us together as a family.  We all have rituals that touch our lives.
The bedtime ritual is such an important one to your child and your family.  Review the day and make it holy.
Time is sacred.  Talk about what made your child's day special, and what you are thankful for.  Read favorite books, plan you next day, and take the time to recite a prayer.  The Sh'ma is the perfect prayer to begin with.
Our families last night enjoyed a program which included a puppet show, favorite bedtime books, and reciting the Sh'ma.  Along with milk and cookies, children made a special pillow for their homes.
Thank you Yael and Raleigh for making this program so special!
