The role of the young child is to grow physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially. Children learn by doing, touching, tasting, hearing, smelling and seeing things that are interesting to them. With this in mind, Shomrei Torah Synagogue's Early Childhood Education Center (STS ECEC) provides activities and experiences that are concrete and relevant to children's lives. Our school's developmental learning approach provides our children with a sense of security and community through which they can develop meaningful interpersonal relationships, with both peers and adults.
Our children are introduced to Jewish living through the symbols and stories of the Jewish holidays. The Jewish calendar provides an endless variety of songs, food, fragrances and ritual objects, which create wonderful learning opportunities.
