Fabiano Family Day Care

Teddy Bear Town, established in 1976 as Fabiano Family Child Care is licensed by the state department of social services and complies with all of the... standards put forth by the department. The owner/director, Marsha Fabiano has a Masters Degree in Educational Counseling, a P.P.S. Credential, a Bachelor’s in Physical Education, a Minor in Early Childhood Education and Business Administration, Certified in Preschool Education and Directorship of a Preschool. Martha has an AA in Child Development & Psychology. All staff members are CPR and First Aid certified. They also have been fingerprinted and have submitted evidence of freedom from tuberculosis. Teddy Bear Town uses a combination of the Dodge Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood and the Piaget's constructivist theory of child development. The Creative Curriculum approach is based on Diane Trister Dodge's career in working with preschool educators. The approach helps teachers to make their practices consistent with their goals for children by arranging their classrooms to support teachers' developmentally appropriate practice and children's active learning, which is directed toward their social competence. Teachers arrange the learning environment into ten interest areas: art, blocks, cooking, computers, house corner, library corner, music and movement, the outdoors, sand and water and table toys. Piaget theory of child development is based on a classroom that is arranged with discrete, well-equipped interest areas. The children engage in a consistent routine that consists of time for children to play, carry out and reflect on their own learning as well as time to engage in small-and-large group activities. Adults support children's active learning by organizing the environment and establishing a consistent daily routine; establishing a supportive social climate; encouraging children's intentional activities, problem solving, and verbal reflections; planning small-and-large groups learning experiences; and interpreting children's actions in terms of child development. These key experiences are grouped into ten categories: creative representation, language and literacy, initiative and social relations, movement, music, classification, serration, number, space and time. Marsha Fabiano has taken these two wonderful child development specialists and has created a successful self learned curriculum for the teachers and children of Teddy Bear Town. The children are well prepared for traditional elementary school, by recognizing letters and letter sounds, writing the alphabet, their name and numbers. They are also developing reading skills and social skills.

Ilan Ramon Day School

In 1995 a Transitional Kindergarten, First Grade, and combination Second/Third Grade class were added, bringing the total number of children to 72.... The school was now pushing the limits of its rented premises, the Gateway Four Corners Church in Agoura. As our population grew, our Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes moved to our present site in 1997, while Grades 1 through 5 remained at the church site until 1998. Presently, Ilan Ramon Day School serves children ages 2-11 on a beautiful 9 acre site in Agoura. Ilan Ramon Day School was founded as Heschel West in 1994 by a group of four families with the dream of starting a Jewish day school in the Conejo Valley. Under the guidance and support of Shirley Levine z?l, Head of School Heschel Day School, Heschel West opened its doors with 14 kindergarteners. Ilan Ramon Day School is an independent community Jewish pre school and day school devoted to developing understanding and respect for our tradition, and the divergent modes of Jewish belief and practice. Fundamental to our school philosophy is the development of each individual learner to his/her highest potential in both general academics, and Judaic Studies thereby enabling each student to attain a positive Jewish identification, sound self-esteem, and a love for learning. Our school is a community in every sense of the word. We teach by example how to respect peoples’ differences, to care for others, and to help those in need. Self esteem, respect, community service, mitzvoth (good deeds) are every bit as important as the challenging academic studies that fill our students’ days. Ilan Ramon Day School, previously known as Heschel West, is a 2008 National Blue Ribbon award winning school. Our students’ scores are in the top 10\\% of the nation. Preschool at Ilan Ramon Day School: Research indicates that the process of learning is as important as the product. With that in mind, we provide an individualized, experiential and developmental program that emphasizes the development of thinking, problem solving, verbalization of feelings, creative self-expression independence, physical and social development, a love of Judaism, in addition to the mastery of academic skills. Our enriched curriculum integrates language arts, social studies, mathematics, science and Judaic concepts with art, music, and dance. Credentialed, nurturing educators support our youngest learners as they are encouraged to explore, question, and create on this beginning educational and spiritual journey. On any given day, one can observe our preschool students … -Learning reading readiness through creative literature experiences and language arts centers -Utilizing concrete manipulatives to understand measurement, number concepts and problem solving -Discovering the world by exploring nature and science in their environment -Learning and living in a caring community where social skills, Torah values, and life lessons are of the highest importance -Learning about community through creative block and dramatic play -Strengthening their physical skills by participating in our accredited Physical Education program -Leading Shabbat services, experiencing the richness of Jewish holidays and developing Hebrew language skills through everyday experiences, prayer and song -At Ilan Ramon Day School, our early childhood students discover the wonder and joy of learning as they develop awareness of self and of others in a social setting.
