About The Early Childhood Center
Philosophy and Curriculum
We are proud to say that the Temple Beth Sholom Early Childhood Center has been providing outstanding, developmentally appropriate secular and Judaic education for decades.
Our preschool provides a warm, safe and nurturing atmosphere in which children can grow emotionally, socially and intellectually. We stimulate each child’s sense of wonder to discover the joy of learning. Each day we skillfully weave meaningful, creative and enriching experiences to empower our students to follow their own curiosity; to work both independently and cooperatively with others and to become self-confident, inquisitive learners. Content related to Jewish living through identification with culture and tradition is incorporated. Through the celebration of Shabbat, the Jewish holidays and of Israel, our children experience the beauty and joy of their heritage.
We have an excellent child to teacher ratio and are staffed by certified teachers. Our school is registered with the New York State Department of Education and licensed by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.
As part of the school day, our children enjoy weekly yoga, science and music classes. We offer after school enrichment programs to enhance the daily school experience. Children can enjoy art, gymnastics, sports, science and drama classes all taught by experienced individuals in their respective field. We also offer before and after school care to meet your family’s needs from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (additional cost).
We hope you will become a part of our TBS family where you and your children can begin a lifelong journey of learning and taking advantage of all the wonderful and enriching adult and family education opportunities that we are so very proud of.
