To this end, consistent and clear communication with our parents represents the primary bridge between home and school– and family involvement within our Early Childhood Department is always encouraged and appreciated. The Early Childhood Department at Gindi Maimonides Academy is built on a core belief that, in order for our children to succeed, we must first create an environment of unconditional love and respect. We value the individuality of our children and provide developmentally appropriate experiences to help them grow and learn. We take pride in building a safe, nurturing environment. read less

We believe children are natural learners, soaking up the world around them like sponges. We share the image of children as being creative, resourceful, powerful and capable human beings. Our learning environment invites their curiosity and the excitement of discovery in the areas of: art, science, math, dramatic play, large and small motor activities, enhanced language development and music. We encourage children to explore, touch and experience the world around them.
We place an emphasis on the whole child and respect that all children learn in different ways. Our integrated approach pays attention to the young child’s physical skill development, self-expression, socialization, coping strategies, cognitive learning, as well as his or her emotional adjustment and well-being. You won’t see perfect crafts or any emphasis on the finished product. Learning happens during the struggle, frustration and truly delightful discoveries throughout the day.
