Beth Shir Sholom Early Childhood Center

At the Early Childhood Center , we believe that child-initiated, child-directed, teacher-supported play is the most important component of our program.
Play allows the child to grow physically, emotionally and socially.
It is how children learn to negotiate, share, cooperate and respect the rights of others.
Our program encourages positive social behaviors such as cooperation, helpfulness, taking turns and problem solving through verbal communication.
Children are given many opportunities for experimentation and involvement including cooking, creative arts, woodworking, storytelling and music.

School Notes

  • At Beth Shir Shalom, we believe children learn best in a safe, loving, unhurried environment where they are free to explore, ask questions, experiment, and construct their own knowledge. We inspire children to find wonder in the world around them, explore with intention, and think creatively as they learn and play together. Teachers encourage cooperation, collaboration, problem solving, and discovery. There is plenty of time outdoors for unique art experiences, scientific investigations, and challenging physical activity, all of which promote a spiritual connection to the natural world. Our children and teachers are active and engaged learners who get wet and messy every day! As part of a Reform synagogue, our Judaic values guide our practice as we promote respect, compassion, justice, and peace in all that we do. Additionally, we share the rituals and celebrate the holidays of our ancestors throughout the year. This deepens our commitment to family and community and strengthens our bonds to both history and eternity.
