The Adat Ari El Rose Engel Early Childhood Center offers a loving, warm and welcoming environment where children are valued for their individuality. We take our inspiration from many sources, primarily Jewish teachings and the Reggio Emilia curriculum philosophy, within a safe, creative and stimulating setting.
The children’s Jewish experiences are based upon the joy of celebration, song, ritual, and the important connection between the community and the family. The children develop a sense of pride in and a love for their Jewish heritage and the special ways we celebrate Judaism as part of Jewish family life.
Every child is unique, with their own interests, learning style, growth timetable, and culture. Learning takes place through our developmentally-based program that values the child’s innate curiosity, ability and creativity, as teachers help to shape the curriculum around the children’s ideas. When given the time, space, and opportunity to interact in a meaningful environment, a child will construct new ideas through investigation and research in order to link them to existing knowledge. These opportunities enable children to develop a strong sense of community, self-reliance, and are given the foundation for critical thinking necessary throughout life.
