We're shaping the way children learn

The most important years of a child's life for building cognition, character and identity are the first five. It's during these critical years that up to 85% of key developmental abilities are formed, so early childhood education offers incredible potential for growth. 

The Susan and Rabbi Harold Loss Early Childhood Center is dedicated to maximizing all children’s potential. Our experienced team of educators are here to nurture your child's creative, cognitive, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development. Our play-based curriculum is child centered and flexible.

Temple Israel's Early Childhood program is an exciting and enriching early childhood program full of daily hands-on experiences for children 20 months-5 years old. Our Early Childhood Center is designed to meet the social, emotional, physical, and academic needs of all children, and is available Monday - Friday from 9 AM - Noon or 9 AM - 2:30 PM.

"We feel privileged to be part of an environment that is so supportive. It's rewarding to see the transformation of each child at the end of the year!"
- Lois, Temple Israel Early Childhood Teacher 

Just a typical day at the ecc

In addition to their regular homeroom class, each week all of our children enjoy special time with their Hebrew teacher, their music teacher, their science teacher, and their gym/yoga instructor. Our children visit the Hodari Media Center for library story hour. Each child receives their own library card, so they may check out Jewish books to take home and share with their families. 

Our goal is to create a loving, safe and nurturing environment where each child's social growth is enhanced by curiosity and learning. Some of the educational methods we use include:

  • Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum: We use materials like Zoo-Phonics, Handwriting Without Tears, and Everyday Math to encourage our young learners.
  • Customized Learning: Since children need to grow and develop at their own speed, we designed our curriculum to challenge and stimulate children’s interests and meet all learners’ needs..
  • Positive Reinforcement: We’re here to encourage every child to cultivate a love of learning, so that they look forward to coming to school each day. We want your kids to love their ECC program as much as we love teaching.
