Website Rabbi Steven Foster ELC at Temple Emanuel

Where discovery meets community

About our school:

At the Rabbi Steven Foster Early Learning Center we strive to nurture each child’s innate sense of wonder and curiosity, seamlessly connecting through our Jewish practice, traditions, values, culture and education. We believe that the foundation for cognitive growth is the development of social and emotional skills, thereby offering children a loving and responsive environment.

Small class sizes (10/12 children to 2-3 educators per room) and a play-based environment provide an opportunity for discovery, creative-thinking and collaboration. Our Emergent Curriculum encourages children to make their own choices, explore their own ideas and follow their own interests through the guidance and expertise of our educators.

Our approach to early childhood education follows primarily the Reggio Emilia Approach and Social and Emotional Intelligence Programs. Our philosophy guides and inspires us to maintain a high level of respect for each child as we honor their unique journey at our school.
