"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.

Mazel visits Kid's Shabbat

On November 15, 2013, the gift of time, fun and laughter made Kid’s Shabbat with Mr. Brett, at Temple Beth Am a hugely popular and successful evening. Featuring a visit from Mazel, the Shabbat Puppy, this family-friendly event was a perfect way to kick off Temple Beth Am’s participation in the Friedman CJE’s traveling curriculum based on the book written by Leslie Kimmelman and illustrated by Jaime Zollars. Rabbi Alon Levkovitz read Mazel’s beautiful story of finding Shabbat peace and Mr. Brett hosted a lively Shabbat sing-a-long to eighty preschoolers, siblings, moms and dads. The children hugged and danced with their favorite furry friends that they had brought from home. Decorations of dog houses and puppy puppets, created by the school’s Shining Stars, brought further excitement to the program as the children acted out their own stories throughout the informal Shabbat dinner that followed. Our families’ donations of much needed supplies for the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League rounded out the Shabbat experience with acts of the mitzvot of tikkun olam and gemilut chadisim.

We love Mazel!
