"Our philosophy is based on the belief that individual differences should be celebrated. We believe that children learn best through play in a nuturing enviroment that cultivates their social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual development.
Creating a classroom community where children feel secure and respected is the corner-stone of the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue program. As children develop warm trusting relationships with their teachers and peers, they learn how to express their feelings, cooperate with others and solve problems. The close relationship betweeen the home and the school becomes the source for enduring friendships and the foundation of community life." Extracted from www.bhsbrooklyn.org.
