Nursery School

thumb_NSHandLogocroppedWhat is special about Temple Beth El Nursery School?

EVERYTHING!  Exceptional, developmentally appropriate curriculum. NAEYC Accredited. Excellent student/teacher ratio.  Experienced and enthusiastic teachers. Warm and nurturing environment. A great ‘family’ to be part of.

Temple Beth El Nursery School, established in 1958 and now directed by Barbara Weinberg, provides a nurturing and trusting environment where children are free to explore, experiment and learn about their world, as well as develop a foundation for a love of Judaism through music, holiday celebrations, and interaction with our rabbi.

The Nursery School is a truly unique and wonderful place for children to learn and grow.  It provides a safe, comfortable and stimulating environment, which promotes positive learning experiences, builds strong self-esteem and nurtures inherent curiosity.  This student-centered, discussion-based, learning gives children the freedom to explore and to take risks as they develop.

At Temple Beth El the focus is on educating the “whole child”  —socially, emotionally and academically.  The children learn by doing, by exploring and by questioning.  The extremely qualified and nurturing teachers act as facilitators, helping to guide children into hands-on activities that prompt critical thinking and insightful conversations.  In this setting each child is valued as a learner, a teacher, a classmate and a friend.

Temple Beth El Nursery School is a place where students and teachers journey together constructing the building blocks to guide our  children to become lifetime learners.  Meanwhile, Jewish identity is enhanced as the children celebrate Shabbat and the holidays through songs, stories, puppetry, craft, and cooking. Children leave Temple Beth El Nursery School with a strong sense of self as well as the skills they will need to succeed in an elementary school setting.
