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.

Parent and Teachers Work Together

In other places where they  teach young children, abstract and well-intentioned discussions of 'parent involvement' have become commonplace.  Many hold parents at a safe distance, not truly involving them in the life we share with the children in our programs; not building genuine partnerships with them.  You will find just the opposite at The One School.  We continually work on building strong relationships with our families, and keep communication open.  Proof of this happened last night as we held parent-teacher conferences at the school.  Parents and teachers talked openly about their children to build on our children's strengths.  Thank you for participating and being a integral part of The One School.
