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.

Thank you for honoring our Teachers!

This is officially Teacher Appreciation Week and we will now be celebrated in big box and office stores, bookstores and of course teacher supply stores.  The parents and administrators at our schools have planned special breakfasts or lunches and children are arriving with flowers and tokens of love. It is one week a year that teachers are honored and officially appreciated.
In the spirit of gratitude and appreciation, I propose that we begin the new practice of a more frequent appreciation of teachers because I know, first-hand, the amount of thought, time and energy teachers devote to their classrooms, parents of their students and mostly to the students themselves. Teachers are teachers 24/7 and it is one of a handful of jobs that are more than a job, more like a lifestyle.

Again thank you to our PTO for our yummy celebrations all week!

And thank you to all my teachers for their dedication to their students and school!!!
