Sherman Early Childhood Center at Har Shalom
The Sherman ECC opened in 1972 and has grown to become the pride of our congregation. In the summer of 2016 our classrooms were completely renovated and feature open spaces and big beautiful windows. In the fall of 2016 our school will be building a state of the art natural playground. Last year we were named Washington FAMILY magazine's Best Preschool, Best Faith-based school, and Best Art Classes. At the Sherman ECC, we believe that each child is a capable and unique individual. Our program provides learning and positive social interaction opportunities for all children through a quality, inclusive and developmentally appropriate program. We nurture children and families in a safe and supportive community. Our program strives to meet the individual needs of each and every child and encourages them to explore their environment through meaningful, relevant and hands-on experiences. Through an array of developmentally appropriate approaches, children develop language, cognitive, social-emotional and physical skills. In addition, our children develop spirituality and an intense feeling of pride in their Jewish heritage, as they observe and participate in Jewish customs and holiday observances. As early childhood professionals, we aim to give each child the opportunity to learn, develop and play to their fullest potential. Our Director, Beth Hoch has been in the early childhood field for over 16 years as a teacher, team leader, and school administrator. She has a passion for Jewish early childhood education and creating an environment where all children are growing and challenged. Beth feels parents are partners and that we work together in the classroom, at home, and in the synagogue to nurture each child and help them grow cognitively, socially, physically, and spiritually through a variety of learning experiences.

St. John's Episcopal Preschool

About Us: Our preschool curriculum is inspired by the philosophy of... teaching young children that originates in Reggio Emilia, Italy. We believe children possess a natural capacity for joy, a sense of wonder about the world and the motivation to make sense of their world. Every young child is intelligent and capable of constructing knowledge through interactions with parents, peers, and educators. At St. John's, children's investigations take on multiple dimensions as they explore the world using their unique personalities and abilities. We also believe all children have the right to caring relationships and rich learning environments provided by adults who listen to their ideas, value their thinking, and thereby broaden their understanding of their world. Our Preschool was founded by parishioners as a part of the church's bicentennial celebration. As a ministry of St. John's Church, we seek to form a bridge to the wider community, reflect the diversity around us, and support the full potential of childhood. The Preschool welcomed its first class of four children in March 1997. In the ensuing years, we have grown to an enrollment of 45 children, ranging in age from 2-1/2 to 5 years. We offer three morning classes with mixed-age extended day options in the morning Early Birds program and the afternoon Kids' Workshop. St. John's Episcopal Preschool is a child care center in Washington, DC. We are open from 8:00am to 3:30pm. To learn more about us, please send us an email.
