Welcome to the Andrew Friedland Early Childhood Learning Center at Temple Beth Rishon where we are committed to providing youngsters with a warm and nurturing environment. Temple Beth Rishon is a place where children feel comfortable to grow socially, creatively, academically and spiritually.
Judaism is integrated throughout the day through art, holiday celebrations, books, food and song. Children are exposed to Judaic content in secular areas as well. For example, learning to count may be taught by counting Chanukah candles or measuring ingredients for a recipe. Literature may be introduced through the re-telling of Jewish stories. Our goal is to have the children begin to "see the world through Jewish eyes."
It is our philosophy that children learn best through play and social interactions, incorporated into an age-appropriate curriculum. We strive to offer a variety of programs that meet the needs of our young families.
