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.

Telling and Retelling Stories

 The magnetic quality of the stories are the universal power to remember, entertain, inspire, create, and know.
Reading aloud and telling stories are both effective ways to share literature with young children and to support language and literacy learning. Children learn through retelling.  The first telling of a story for the teacher to a group of young children is an exciting introduction to the content, while retelling of the same story allows children to revisit the tale and refine their understanding. This pleasurable experience helps children develop concepts about words, print, and books.  Retelling also helps children build frameworks, characters, and vocabulary to use when they create stories.

Our school was filled with books from our Scholastic Book Fair to our participation in Read for the Record sponsored by the Literacy Coalition. We value children reading and teachers and parents reading aloud to their children.  Thank you, parents for supporting literacy for your children by donating books to the classroom.  They are greatly appreciated!!
