Our Preschool follows a play-based/constructivist approach.  The constructivist approach views children as active participants in their own learning. Education is then much more than rote memorization; instead, it is integrating and assimilating knowledge to be further used and explored. Constructivist strategies seek to ignite a child’s curiosity and love of learning. The emphasis is on the “whole child.”

The Temple Solel ECC provides an inclusive nurturing environment where children feel safe to try new things, discover their own potential, and explore decision-making and problem solving. Our child centered, play based program places equal emphasis upon cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development.

The curriculum is based on the understanding that children learn best by doing. The Talmud tells us that, “Only the lesson which is enjoyed, can be well learned.” Playing is how children learn. During their time here, we engage students’ senses to stimulate creative learning through touching, listening, smelling, looking, tasting, and feeling. Young children learn when they are active. Engaging hands –on-activities that excite and evoke questions, stimulate their intellectual curiosity and help them to become independent thinkers and problem solvers.

Our educational environment incorporates the above mentioned Jewish values, as well as Jewish beliefs and integrates these with secular content during the course of each day. Our Rabbis and Cantor are actively involved in our holiday celebrations with our children.

OUR GOAL IS TO BEGIN A LIFELONG PROCESS OF JUDAIC LEARNING AND ENRICHMENT FOR OUR STUDENTS.
