When our children walk into the ECC, the warmth and love that only a quality childhood learning center can provide is immediate. Our play-based setting helps our children to feel good about themselves and about learning. We are devoted to ensuring our children and their families a safe, nurturing, relaxed, warm, and loving place where our children can grow and thrive.
At Temple Beth El, Jewish values and traditions are incorporated into our everyday learning center life. Through stories and songs, art and cooking, as well as interaction with our clergy, the sights, sounds, and tastes of the Jewish holidays become a part of each of our children. In addition to finding creative, captivating ways to celebrate the holidays, we also make Shabbat a special time for our school classes. We sing blessings, taste challah and grape juice, and sing Shabbat songs. This is a wonderful and memorable weekly experience our children truly love.
Mazel Tov to our future leaders!
