Philosophy


At Beth El Nursery School, teachers, parents and the clergy join together to provide a supportive, hands-on, emergent curriculum based program. At BENS, we see each child as an individual and our teachers use their expertise to facilitate and promote appropriate social skills, cognitive development, communication, positive self-esteem as well as literacy and physical growth (fine and gross motor skills). Jewish values and culture are woven into our teaching methods by story-telling and celebrating the holidays and Shabbat. We strive to meet the goals of each child, family and teacher and value our partnerships with families to ensure the very best individual care and education for each child. Our hands-on teaching methods and emergent curriculum allow for us to provide a custom learning experience in each classroom.
