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.

Our Garden Committee Kickoff Meeting

We are so excited about our new committee to develop a garden on our playground. The committee met today to develop an action plan for our organic and environmental learning center.  We are looking for interested families that would like to contribute in any way.  If you like getting dirty and want to be part of the actual digging and planting that is great!  But we need many volunteers who can sponsor or donate items
to make this garden a reality.  We also need to solicit garden centers for needed materials. Please look for the Design Board in the Preschool entrance so you can be part of this great learning and environmentally friendly project. The committee's first task is to plant parsley seedlings for each class in recycled K Cups with all our children.  We hope we will have parsley for  Passover seder and for the beginnings of our Preschool garden!!!.  Please join Liz Perez, Robin Walder, Krista Alterman, Limor Meital at any time to be founding members of the garden committee!

                                                                    New beginnings!!!
