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.

Sukkot Week

Last week we were very busy celebrating the Jewish holiday Sukkot.  This is when we celebrate the fall harvest and build a sukkah, a temporary hut.  Our class Sukkah was built using pvc pipes and decorated by the chuildren's creations of paper chains and paper fruits and vegetables.  We visited the large sukkah outside and created edible sukkahs out of fresh vegetables, pretzels, and veggie sticks.  It was a fun week had by all :)

Hear the Shofar!

During Music with Mr. Brett, he demonstrated how to blow the shofar and all of the sounds it makes.  The shofar is made from a ram's horn and traditionally blown at the beginning of Rosh Hashanah and at the end of Yom Kippur.

Special Delivery

We hope everyone enjoyed receiving and reading the special Rosh Hashanah cards your children mailed to you :)

Fun and educational.  Yoga with Ms. Stephanie, benefited our bodies and was as peaceful for our minds. Wow what a week!

Buddy Painting

The children were randomly teamed up with another child in the classroom.  They talked about what they wanted to paint and then used watercolors to paint their pictures together. Next time you are in our classroom, look at the buddy pictures displayed on our bulletin board.
