Preschool - An Important Beginning

rug time

Preschool is the beginning of many years of education. We offer one of Conejo Valley’s largest, loveliest, and liveliest child care facilities. We hold special pride in the center’s professional staff. Selected for their knowledge of child development as well as their strong interpersonal skills, they are the strength of our program. When visiting Temple Etz Chaim, please take time to listen, to watch, and to learn from this unique group. You will be enriched.

Our early childhood environment is designed to create an atmosphere that enables our children to grow at their own pace. We believe that children learn through discovery, experimentation, and problem solving. Our learning activities encourage the development of self-confidence, language, and a positive self-image.

story time

We emphasize the role of the family and the celebration of our lives through the Jewish life cycle. Throughout the year, we have many family based activities, and we encourage parent involvement through parent education classes, classroom volunteering, Mom’s, Dad’s and Grandparent Days, and Jewish cultural and holiday celebrations.

We are licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services, and accredited by the Bureau of Jewish Education (BJE).

one-on-oneAt Temple Etz Chaim ECE Center, we believe that seeing is believing. We invite and encourage parents who are considering enrolling their children in any of our wonderful programs to make an appointment with me. Come and see our teachers and facilities… I am happy to give you a tour.

 

Shalom,
