"The Temple Beth Zion Plan And Learn School (PALS) provides the highest quality of education and care available for the young child. As an integral part of our synagogue family, the preschool is a collaborative effort on behalf of children and their families. Our purpose is to provide high quality programs that enhances each child's physical, social, emotional, intellectual, creative and spiritual development in warm and nurturing surroundings. The Jewish component of our programm integrates thoroughly into the daily classroom activities. An inclusive atmosphere helps families to feel comfortable and supported through their child's early education.
A safe and respectful environment supports children, parents, teachers and Temple members alike. Mutual concern for the well being of children creates an atmosphere where all parties communicate, frequently and openly, on behalf of children.
We support parents to our fullest capacity. It is our belief that you are your child's greatest teacher. Parental involvement is welcomed and encouraged. The school addresses the needs of both children and their families through parent education and family events. This helps create a supportive, nurturing atmosphere.
Teachers are provided resources and ongoing professional development to further their abilities to educate and care for children.
Temple members have opportunities to support the school's activities through volunteerism, policy setting and participation in the daily activities of the children.
