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.

Week of the Young Child at The One School

The Week of the Young Child™ is a time to recognize that children's opportunities are our responsibilities, and to recommit ourselves to ensuring that each and every child experiences the type of early environment—at home, at child care, at school, and in the community—that will promote their early learning. Today we know more than ever before about the importance of children's earliest years in shaping their learning and development. Yet, never before have the needs of young children and their families been more pressing.
How do people celebrate Week of the Young Child at The One School
Music Monday!   April 13, 2015
Sing, dance, celebrate, and learn
Through music, children develop math, language, and literacy skills - and of course, have fun while being active! In their popular song,   For Music Monday we invited our students to sing and dance along with music. We had fun making up your own verses and dance moves

TACO Tuesday, April 14, 2015  Healthy eating and fitness at home and school

Taco Tuesday  is about more than just cheese and salsa — cooking with young children develops math and science skills while promoting literacy and creativity. And with the rise in childhood obesity, Taco Tuesday is a reminder for teachers and families to encourage healthy nutrition and fitness habits at home and in the classroom

Work Together Wednesday   April 15, 2015
Work together, build together, learn together
When children build together they explore math and science concepts and develop their social and early literacy skills. This Week of the Young Child, we work together and build something .  Kids can use any building material - from a fort of branches on the school playground, a block city in the classroom, a hideaway made from couch pillows at home, to a Lego creation. 

Artsy Thursday   April 16, 2015
Think, problem solve, create
Children develop creativity, social skills and fine muscles with open-ended art projects where they can make choices, use their imaginations and create with their hands. On Artsy Thursday we celebrate the joy and learning children experience when engaged in creative art making.
