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.

Making Apples for Rosh Hashanah

The children enjoyed painting and making apples for Rosh Hashanah to celebrate the sweet New Year! They learned about the colors red and green as well as the Rosh Hashanah holiday. We had an apple tasting with honey for snack. They used their senses to smell the apple, feel the texture, and taste the delicious red and green apples. We sang the song Dip your apple into honey! The children had a lot of fun with this activity and celebration.

Group Project

Ms. Isabel and Ms. Danielle asked the children to draw what they wanted and make their handprints. They were able to work together, show their creativity, focus, and use their fine motor skills. They worked on their social-emotional skills by sharing the crayons, working as a team, and using their social skills to communicate with each other and make new friends. Each child made a unique drawing and had lots of fun making their handprints.
