Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The early childhood program at Solomon Schechter celebrates the uniqueness of each child. We respect individual differences in learning styles and growth patterns, and understand that children thrive socially, emotionally, and intellectually when they are provided with a developmentally appropriate environment. Teachers are available to support and facilitate children's interests and activities. Setting up an environment that is conducive to teaching responsibility, independence, and self-control is a main focus of our program along with conflict resolution and respecting the rights and values of others. As part of a Jewish Day School our children benefit from being able to see to see themselves as an integral part of the Jewish community and understand that Judaism is a way of life."
