We take a social constructivist approach to curriculum where we believe that children learn within the context of their environment. Teachers create interesting and thought provoking environments where children can explore, experiment and take risks. Within this environment, teachers are supporting a child’s social and emotional development by helping them read social cues, scaffolding play and modeling respect and kindness towards others.
Our curriculum reflects concepts of the Reggio Emilia approach through a Jewish lens.
