ECC Welcome

ellyn weiszWelcome to the Beth Tikvah Congregation Early Childhood Center (ECC). Here your child will be part of a warm, nurturing, supportive and inclusive environment. Our children are provided opportunities to grow intellectually, emotionally, socially and cognitively. Our day is balanced between structured learning time, and unstructured exploration time. We promote our children's self image and follow a Reggio inspired curriculum that allows children to construct knowledge, and feel they have ownership in learning by doing.

ECC Chanukah Dinner

We had such a wonderful time celebrating Chanukah with over 80 people at our ECC dinner.

Many ECC families, grandparents, and a great grandfather participated. Board members and alumni ECC families joined in the fun too.

With a group candle lighting, a delicious potluck dinner, and a sing along, it was a great night.
