Other subjects taught 'Jewish tradition and celebration form the backbone of our curriculum, and parent participation is integral to our program as well. Interwoven with developmentally appropriate secular concepts, foundational experiences are created in the areas of language arts, science, math, art, music, movement, and cooking. The entire curriculum aims to enhance the child's development in the following areas: social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual. The values of kindness, consideration, compassion, and fairness permeate our daily experiences.' -- Extracted from the WIlshire Boulevard Temple Mann Family Early Childhood Center website
