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.

Children Learn So Much From Cooking from NAEYC

Children Learn So Much From Cooking!

Cooking with children has innumerous benefits from laying the foundation for basic math concepts to instilling healthy eating habits. 
  • Children strengthen their fine motor skills through cutting, pouring and scooping.
  • They develop a basic understanding of math concepts like understanding volumne through measuring different ingredients.
  • Children learn the concept of sequencing through reading recipes and discussing what comes first, second, and third in the cooking process.
  • Children expand their vocabulary as they are exposed to new words and terms.
One of the greatest benefits to cooking with children is helping them develop an adventurous and diverse taste palette.
Children are more likely to try different ingredients and foods if they experience them at an early age.
We believe that children learn best through play and when they are able to fully engage all of their senses. 
The textures, smells, and tastes from the various ingredients provide an unmatched organic experience with an ability to enthrall, entice, and spur a sense of wonder in the children’s eyes. As educators, we foster each child’s independence and encourage the exploration of culinary creations, igniting a sense of accomplishment which provides an insatiable desire to push boundaries while we work together to create tantalizing results. Let’s eat!
