Established in 1988, the Beth Shalom Early Learning Center recognizes the importance of the early years in a child’s development and acknowledges the impact that a high quality early education experience can have on their future success. We believe that each child is an individual with a unique endowment, which is continually shaped by their social and cultural environments. We strive to work in partnership with our children’s parents, communicating daily to build mutual understanding and trust to ensure the welfare and optimal learning experience for each child.
By implementing a comprehensive curriculum that is thoughtfully planned, challenging, engaging, developmentally appropriate, and culturally and linguistically responsive, our children build skills and gain knowledge to be successful thinkers and explorers. In our application of developmentally appropriate practices, we highlight the importance of applying the knowledge of child development with the information gained by forming a relationship with each child and family.
