Beth El Early Learning Center offers a developmental curriculum which empowers all children to reach their potential. We offer challenges just beyond the level of present mastery, providing opportunities to learn and practice newly acquired skills while recognizing individual variations. We recognize various learning styles by incorporating Dr. Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences into daily learning experiences.
We create foundational, hands-on experiences in language arts, science, math, art, music and movement through a combination of secular (Creative Curriculum, Handwriting Without Tears, Land of the Letter People) and Judaic (Jewish Everyday, What’s Jewish About Butterflies) curricula.
We recognize that children learn best when they are highly interested in the subject matter. We utilize a thematic approach that is fluid and flexible, and values the interests of the children.
Our curriculum is experiential. Learning occurs as a result of hand-on involvement with experiences in and out of the classroom. Children’s learning reflects a recurring cycle that begins with awareness and discovery, moves to exploration, to inquiry, and finally to utilization.
In addition, we value and incorporate the infinite number of ideas each experienced teacher brings to the classroom. We encourage collaborative thinking and planning amongst our staff to create a truly unique early childhood program.
