We view your child as capable, competent, and full of wonder. Our teachers, assistants, specialists, clergy, and administration believe that learning is a process of construction, growth, and reflection. We intentionally plan experiences and lessons to inspire ideas, spark questions, and set the stage for positive interactions.
Jewish ethical values help provide a foundation from which we strive to nurture, support, and create connections with our children, families, professional staff, and community. Our inquiry-based educational approach, which integrates a Judaic and secular curriculum, embraces the very best of developmentally appropriate practice.
Our welcoming classrooms have learning areas for block play, dramatic play, math, science, language and literacy, and motor skills.
Our outstanding campus includes five outdoor playgrounds, a computer lab, a media center, and dedicated space for science and art programming.
Our days are filled with both teacher-led and child-initiated activities. The teachers spend time helping children communicate with each other, negotiate problems, ask questions, value their own ideas, and discover the joy of learning.
Exciting news! We plan to re-open our ECC for in-school programming on January 13, 2021!
When in-person education resumes, our school will be open from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm Monday through Friday.
Our beautiful, open suburban campus is appropriately configured to maximize physical distancing and create classroom cohorts. Here are some of the many ways we will focus on the health, safety, and well-being of each child, family, teacher, and staff member:
