At Ramat Shalom's Early Childhood Center, our mission is to insure that our students reach their highest developmental, social and academic potential. We do so by creating and maintaining a developmentally appropriate environment for learning that will enhance each child's educational experience. By monitoring their progress, we will make assessment driven decisions that aid in each child’s achievements and provide comprehensive support, insuring that each child's potential is realized.
Children ages 12 months to 5 years flourish in our nurturing, pre-school environment, where a reach-based curriculum fits the needs of each child and flexible scheduling fits the needs of each family. School wide, The Creative Curriculum incorporates the latest research and best practices to insure that the needs of every type of learner is addressed. The Creative Curriculum enables our educators to plan and implement content-rich, developmentally appropriate programs that support active learning and promote a child's progress in all developmental areas.
In each of our classrooms, hands-on activities, advanced technology and special programs like Handwriting Without Tears encourage the development of reading and writing skills that have propelled our students to receive the high kindergarten reading readiness rates necessary to successfully advance to higher education.
Our teachers are skilled, highly trained early childhood educators. All of our lead teachers and assistant teachers have early childhood certifications. Our staff participates in ongoing workshops and conferences for their continued education; this ongoing education reinforces our Early Childhood Center's professional promise to teaching.
As a synagogue based Early Childhood Center, Judaism is incorporated into all aspects of our learning experience. Weekly "Shabbat" services on Friday morning, Monday morning "Havdalah" and music, holiday celebrations, Hebrew language, Jewish values and Torah stories are all part of our Judaic curriculum. Our Rabbi and Cantor are actively invoved in our classrooms and add so much to our students' experience at Ramat Shalom.
In addition to all of the wonderful things that go on in our classroom, school day enrichments are included in school tuition.
