"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.

What to do when NO Doesn't Work

Today Dr Brandi Rials from

Palm Beach Behavioral

Health and Wellness talked to parents at The One School

Here are some tips from Dr. Rials:

NO one wants to hear NO
All children—and some adults—have difficulty delaying gratification. “I want it now” is a common desire.
It’s necessary for us to say “no” to a child so
the child can later say “no” to himself.  Learning to accept “no” from someone else is a prelude to saying “no” to herself.
What causes the tantrum is combination of
developmental stage and an impulsive

reaction to want an immediate “yes”

This happens because they haven’t yet
developed the reasoning skills to consider the
necessity of saying “no” to themselves

Be Consistent about Being Consistent

Order and routine give young children a safe haven from what they view as an unpredictable world.
Predictability and routine makes children feel much more safe and secure, which results in them being ore behaved and calm because they know what to expect.
Try to keep to the same schedule every day--having consistent nap times, mealtimes, and bedtimes as well as times when your child is free to just run around and have fun.
