Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Beth Am Preschool embraces the philosophy that through an environment filled with warmth, respect and imagination we can foster the development of the "whole" child. We focus on the social-emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual well being of each child. It is our belief that by learning through play, children are empowered to reach the goals of our early childhood education program. Our nurturing environment provides opportunities for exploration, discovery and hands-on experiences at each developmental level.

Beth Am Preschool is committed to helping children become independent learners whose self-esteem and self-confidence will enhance their ability to explore the world around them.

Beth Am Preschool provides an environment in which children come first and each child feels unique and encouraged to reach his/her own potential. We encourage parent involvement and strive to establish a strong link between school and home.
