Our Philosophy . . .

Our Beth-El Zedeck Early Childhood Program recognizes that intellectual, social, spiritual, emotional and physical development are intricately interwoven. We believe in integrating all areas of learning so as to address the whole child. Our toddlers, preschoolers and kindergartners will thrive on exploration, creativity, spontaneity and lots of love. Our curriculum recognizes that play is the best tool for learning and allows flexibility to follow the interests and needs of your child. A multitude of activities is provided through music and creative movement, arts and crafts, cooking, large and small motor skill activities, and exciting entertainment. Our teachers are committed and responsive to each child’s needs. We strive to give our children a love of learning and discovery, and a sense of trust and worthiness that they will take with them into their future experiences. Graduates of our Early Childhood Program continue to grow and mature with self-confidence, excellent learning and socialization skills, and enhanced self-esteem.
