We create an environment that encompasses the importance of Judaism, family, community, and the individual needs of each child.
In our warm and nurturing environment, children learn through active play and exploration. Our Jewish values and traditions are the foundation of our program.
Why Temple Emanu-El’s Early Childhood Infant Care Program?
Our infant and toddler program is designed to meet the needs of our community by offering full day childcare from 7am-6pm year-round. Your baby (3 months and up) and toddler will be cared for by our warm and loving staff. Our state of the art classrooms create a bright, cozy, inspiring environment for your child to thrive and grow and our highly qualified teaching team strives to meet your child’s individual needs. The children will experience activities that enhance their cognitive, social- emotional and motor skills development including music, outdoor time, group time, Shabbat celebrations, and other school-wide events . We believe in the importance of building positive, trusting relationships with the whole family through close communication. We use Kaymbu, an early childhood communication tool, to provide photos, documentation, and daily communication in a simple, user friendly manner.

What do our parents have to say?
"We are beyond thrilled with Temple Emanu-El Inchworm class! Our daughter not only loves her teachers and the other students, but we are loving watching her blossom into a self sufficient, creative and curious little lady. The class sizes are super small and personalized and the teachers are so loving and truly treat our daughter like their own. We don't feel like we are dropping her off at a daycare, we feel like we are allowing our village and community to help in teach and raise our baby girl. It has been a truly fabulous experience."
"We love temple Emanu-El’s infant room so much! It is such a relief to know that our baby is being loved and taken care of during the day. He has grown so much developmentally over the last 8 months, it has been so wonderful to see and I know we owe much of it to all of the teachers!"
We cannot say enough great things about the program!"
