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.

Let Kids Help Prepare for Passover

From Judaism.org
Remember Passover when you were growing up, with lots of preparation and tumult in the house? Perhaps you are old enough to remember a carp swimming in the bathtub, waiting unwittingly to be made into Grandma's special gefilte fish. Maybe you watched as the Hackmesser and wooden bowl were put on the counter filled with apples and walnuts to be pounded with the semi-luna blade to create the right consistency of charoset
What memories do your children and grandchildren have?
Let's find ways to give lasting Passover memories to the next generation – minus the bathtub fish – by involving them with the preparation for the holiday and its cooking.
Now, I can imagine you are shouting,
Has she gone crazy? How am I to prepare the house and cook the food for 16+ people and have the children under foot? I barely have enough time doing it alone!
 If children participate in a few tasks they will actually be less intrusive to the preparation than you would imagine.   Read article on urj.
