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 through acceptance of who the child is, understanding their individuality and the social interactions of the class.The teachers help to guide and encourage the children to achieve and master developmentally appropriate skills, which allows them to be curious learners eager to explore new concepts. Here at the ECC we follow a Reggio inspired curriculum that allows children to construct knowledge, and feel they have ownership in learning by doing.

Children develop their social skills through play and problem solving as friendships and relationships form. They engage together in conversation during art, snack time, dramatic play, block building, science, sharing puzzles or other small manipulatives in the classroom. Outside on the playground the children are running, climbing, bike riding or digging in the sandbox. All of this movement is important for their physical well being.

Our educators are all professional college graduates, with degrees and/or classes in early childhood education. We continue to advance our knowledge by taking classes, workshops and attending conferences in the field of child development. Our teachers have many years of experience in early childhood education. They are dedicated caring, warm and welcoming individuals. We have on staff teachers who are CPR certified, and we take the safety of your child seriously. The ECC is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).

We are a school that children and families of all races, nationalities and religions feel comfortable learning and sharing the Jewish values and holidays we teach. Our school is built on mutual respect. We know communication is the key to a good foundation in building a relationship together. We encourage and promote family partnerships and friendships both in the school setting, and outside our building. Through our multi generational family dinners, the Parent Committee and social gatherings, we foster the importance of this being a community. We feel strongly about building family connections and a sense of belonging. 

We hope your child's educational journey begins here with us.
