"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.

Happy Happy New Year!

What a wonderful start to our new year it was.  As our children left on Wednesday afternoon, parents and children greeted me with wishes for a happy year!  It was so heart-warming as I left to prepare for the holiday.  Again, on Thursday I was greeted by preschool graduates, and my own  families from preschool as we entered the family Rosh Hashanah service.  Rabbi Alon, Mr Brett, and Cantor Jessica with a rock band led a warm, fun and meaningful service for our families.  The theme for this service led by Rabbi Alon was let's together build a wonderful world.  His sermon was based on the book by Loui Armstrong, What a Wonderful World.  The service ended with shofar blowing, singing "I like to Hear the Shofar Blast" and everyone receiving their own shofar.  The Temple Sisterhood had apples and honey for each child.  And for me personally my entire family enjoyed the family service
