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.

How Much Juice? Tip 4

Q:  My children love to drink juice.  Should I try to limit how much if it they drink?

A:  The short answer is "yes".  While juice has nutrients, it also has a lot of sugar.  Believe it or not, a 12 ounce glass of apple juice can contain 10 teaspoons of sugar.--the same as in a can of cola-- and a glass of grape juice can have 15 teaspoons of sugar.  Encourage your children to eat fruit rather than drink juice.  They will consume fiber along with more nutrients.  If your kids do have juice, try to limit it to a glass a day.  Choose varieties marked 100 percent juice, and stay away from those labeled "fruit drink",or " fruit cocktail".  the best bets are orange or grapefruit juice since they have more natural vitamin C and less suger.
