Temple Isaiah Preschool program was established to meet the needs of families desiring a warm, nurturing preschool experience for their children in a safe and secure environment. Since its inception several decades ago, our preschool programs have earned a reputation for excellence and we have seen our preschool grow from a small group of children to the rich and vibrant community it is today. The first few years of a child's life are the most important for growth and development. In recognition of how crucial these early years are to later learning, the early childhood programs of the Temple Isaiah Preschool integrate the best of early childhood theories and ideas, based on the work of Piaget and Vygotsky, current research into best practices in early childhood education, and NAEYC Developmentally Appropriate Practice guidelines. We use active learning to promote cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and creative development. Curriculum materials are designed to facilitate children's construction of knowledge by encouraging them to explore, experiment, problem-solve, and share ideas with one another.
