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.

The emphasis is completely on the positive and on the experiential. From the Alef-Bet to the ABC's; the weekly Torah portion to Jewish ethics; subjects are not merely taught in the classroom, but are animated and brought vividly to life - with music, with dance, with stories. Likewise, whether it's a holiday event, a Friday night dinner or a school graduation, there is a special spirit in the air that embraces child and parent alike. This school spiritually feeds the community, and vice versa. In the words of Director Renee Hutchings, Beyond the high level of professionalism we aspire to, there is that abstract dimension that endears this program to all involved. That dimension is love. It's warmth. It's Chabad. read less

Parent and Me classes let parents of infants and toddlers share their experiences in a supportive group setting weekly. Sessions include: art, story time, body movement, large and small motor activities, free play, snack and singing. While children are in free play, adults discuss parenting issues. Our Nursery School (ages 2.7-4) and our Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4-5), take place in a nurturing atmosphere, encouraging children to explore and make choices, to actively participate, and to experience a sense of security and success. Our staff respects the individuality of each child and creates a sense of community. Our Judaic program is integrated into our secular curriculum daily. Our children participate in special holidays and Shabbat observances. We also have a very active Parent Association, offering many committees to join. read less

We provide a positive, nurturing, safe environment in which children are encouraged to explore their feelings and learn about the world around them. A lifelong love of learning is fostered through child-centered programming including music, art, cooking, science, yoga, literature, imaginary play, and Jewish values. We celebrate many Jewish and secular holidays throughout the school year. Shabbat is a particularly special celebration each week, both in class and in the synagogue with our rabbis and cantors. We strive for each child to become successful in both individual pursuits and group social situations so that when they move on from the Temple Judea ECC, they are confident, capable, and prepared for Kindergarten.
Children are eligible for Nursery School if they turn 2 years old by September 1st for our Fall semester, or by the first day of the semester for our Spring or Summer sessions. If the age requirement is met, parents can decide, with the guidance of the ECC administration, when children should begin Nursery School. We recommend placing children in a Parenting Center Transition class the semester preceding Nursery School.

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.
