Temple Akiba Early Childhood Center, is a place where teachers, parents, their children, Rabbi Zachary R. Shapiro And Cantor Lonee Frailich, join together to build a strong Jewish inspired community for children to be in.
Collaboratively, we have created an environment where all children, from all cultures and religious backgrounds, are welcome to be themselves, excite their curiosity, explore the many languages of the world around them and have the freedom to choose the areas of their interest from a variety of thought-provoking activities. Our community of teachers and parents share a common belief that together we can continue to establish an environment of strong identity and belonging where sharing and exchanging our knowledge and resources with each other becomes a process of our daily routine.
TA ECC's educational approach is a weave of most recent child development theories. When combined together, they create a harmonious and sensible developmentally appropriate curriculum. Our main emphasis is to allow children to explore and develop their emotional, physical, cognitive and social qualities at their own pace.
Starting from the age of two and transitioning through the age of five, we focus our teaching styles on developing healthy habits. We facilitate and promote appropriate social skills, close friendship, communication and language skills, self-expression, positive self-esteem, physical growth (fine and gross motor skills) and respect of one another. We pride ourselves in the way that we value each child’s abilities and potentials, listen to their amazing ideas and help create a map of knowledge for them to explore at their own pace so they can achieve success.
Our main goal is to meet the needs of each individual child, parent, and teacher. Together, we strive in creating a supportive, nurturing and cognitively inviting environment for all to be in. We welcome you to TA ECC!
