The Valley Beth Shalom Early Childhood Center (ECC) welcomes children from birth through 5 years old. Beginning with our exciting parent/grandparent and me classes and parent education opportunities offered through our dedicated Infant-Toddler and Family Center, we support your family’s journey as a cherished part of the community. The ECC embraces a child’s natural way of learning and provides an environment that nurtures social, emotional and intellectual development. Through Jewish tradition, wisdom and values, our mission is to love, nurture and guide each child as an individual. Our school fosters self-esteem, confidence and independence through a play-based learning model that draws on an eclectic blend of early childhood research, theory, and current modes of thinking. Our curriculum addresses the development of the whole child, including critical thinking skills, compassion and Jewish identity. Partnering with families, we provide a safe and supportive community. Beginning at age 2, we offer a full-time preschool program for children with schedule options, extended early and late after-care hours, summer, spring and winter camps.
