Temple Emanu-El’s Early Childhood Education Program
We create an environment that encompasses the importance of Judaism, family, community, and the individual needs of each child. We respect children for who they are now, as well as for their potential. In our warm and nurturing environment, children learn through active play and exploration. Our Jewish values and traditions are the foundation of our program and we welcome all early childhood families into our Temple community.
Active Learners Warm Community
Our hands-on approach encourages curiosity, exploration, and a love for learning. We prioritize fostering emotional well-being for children, their families, and our staff by cultivating a supportive environment based on trust and authenticity.
Experienced and Dedicated Educators Fostering a Sense of Community
Our passionate educators bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and best practices, ensuring the children are getting the best developmentally appropriate experience. With a very low teacher turnover, we maintain a continuous and stable learning environment. Our community extends far beyond the walls of the classroom. Families, educators, clergy, and temple staff work together, fostering shared values and connections that last a lifetime.

Hear from our families
ECE is the best, I cannot recommend them more. They are so loving and caring of the children and the amount of development and learning is amazing to see from the first to last day of school.
I can’t imagine sending my kids anywhere else!
We’ve been so impressed by all of the creative and engaging activities the kids do in the ECE.
We’ve been so happy with the ECE’s curriculum and feel as though both of our children are constantly learning!
We are so impressed and touched with how the ECE teachers took care of our son and helped him grow up this year. He has learned so much and absolutely loves his friends and teachers.
We can’t imagine a better place for our son than Temple Emanu-El’s ECE program. We are so grateful to the teachers and staff for taking such good care of him and creating a nurturing, supportive environment for him to learn, grow and play.
I love being a part of the ECE family! Best decision we made when moving to town. The teachers are so special and work so hard every day to make my boys so happy!
Teachers are very creative and patient we are very lucky to have them – my daughter runs into school in the morning to hug her teachers
It’s a very warm, loving community for the students. My child loves shabbat, singing, dancing and all of the traditions.
I like how there are a lot of opportunities for the parents to get involved in different activities (bagel Monday, pizza Friday, Hamantashen baking, etc.).
The quality of the activities the kids do, lots of communication from the school about what they’re doing
