The AAE ECC 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. Extended Hours 7:30am-6pm.

Through Project EnAble, students are mentored and academically engaged during the school day. Systems are in place for ongoing student and family support and feedback. Project EnAble is proud to provide integrated professional development workshops for schools to support the clinical and educational work being done to accommodate diverse learning styles. Following the first year planning period, Project EnAble was implemented in 2 BJE schools in October 2017. Currently, students can receive specialized support in the areas of Language Arts (including Reading and Writing), Math, foreign language, and Executive Functioning skills (including organizational and time management) as well as building a relationship with others. Accommodating and prioritizing the needs of all learners is a goal to which BJE and its affiliated schools aspire. Project EnAble creates a mechanism for providing needed services for students within the context of the school day, making it possible for more student success and for families to consider and remain in Jewish day schools.
