Learn Our Philosophy

Temple Ahavat Shalom’s Early Childhood Education Center (TAS ECEC) recognizes that children are individuals who deserve respect and appreciation for their uniqueness. We give children an opportunity to build their self-esteem in a safe and nurturing environment, all within the context of a rich Reform Jewish tradition. We encourage each child to travel on this journey of learning by utilizing a hands-on, play-based curriculum, which fosters creativity and curiosity. We place value on the process rather than the product and strive for the development of the whole child. We view education as a partnership among teacher, family and community and hope this relationship continues to grow, as our families remain part of our TAS community, even after graduating from the ECEC.

How We Play

At the TAS ECEC, we encourage our children to learn age-appropriate skills such as following directions, developing independence, and self-caring. We also provide help when your child is ready for toilet training. We believe that learning takes place inside the classroom just as much as it does outside the classroom. Children take part in various indoor and outdoor activities including gardening, cooking, music and art. Children visit our library weekly to hear stories and borrow books. We also offer additional enrichment classes such as musical theater, science, martial arts, sports and gymnastics, which support creative thinking, strength and development as your child grows. With small classes and a low ratio of children per teacher, we ensure special attention for every child. Our goal is to prepare our children for the next phase of their lives and our Pre-K’s leave our school with self-confidence, positive self-esteem and a love for learning and creativity that will flourish as they continue on their journey of learning.
