At Beth-El Zedeck Early Childhood, we believe in the power of play, including risky play! We strive to achieve and implement the most developmentally appropriate practices of helping our youngest students learn and be successful in their early education. We achieve that by implementing a play based curriculum.  Play based preschool may look like children are “just playing” in their classroom, outside, or even in the hallways, but play is how children of this age learn new things! There are many advantages of play including but not limited to, holistic development, active learning, creativity, communication skills, engagement, and individualized learning. With these advantages at the forefront of our minds, children in our preschool will be growing their minds using different activities and you may see children climbing up and down slides or swinging on their bellies! All with giant smiles on their faces because they “can do it!”. Overall, play based preschools and risky play offers a child-centered approach that supports holistic development, fosters a love of learning, and provides a nurturing sand engaging environment for young children to thrive and we are thrilled to show you how amazing play can be!
