The Early Childhood Education Center at Temple Beth Tikvah aims to provide an emotionally and physically safe and stimulating environment that facilitates learning and the love of Judaism through play, collaboration, and community. We believe that children are unique, competent, curious, inquisitive and creative. Through play-based and hands-on experiences, we encourage social, emotional and cognitive growth to meet the needs of every child. We are proud of our ability to blend Jewish and secular learning. Children express themselves as individuals as they come to learn and live a Jewish life. Holidays, customs, traditions, and values come to life as we learn, play and pray together. We model kindness, empathy, confidence, independence, respect and compassion. These values drive the school’s culture and community.Our dedicated, nurturing and caring staff is committed to providing a positive learning experience for each child. We pride ourselves in the relationships we build with the children, the families and community. Here, you are part of a family, nurtured in all aspects. Safety is our number one priority. Our staff is CPR/AED/First Aid and Epi-Pen trained. The ECEC is proud to be accredited by Advanc-ED and an ALEF Fund partner! Through the ALEF fund, we are able to offer significant scholarships to our Pre-K and Madrigot students. For more information regarding the ALEF fund - www.aleffund.org.
