Fall Registration Now Open
New for 2012-2013 – an optional 5th day for 3’s and 4’s
South Salem, NY – The Jewish Family Congregation is now accepting enrollment for its Early Childhood Center (ECC) program for the school year 2012-2013. The Center offers half-day programs for children ages 2-4 as well as an optional summer camp. At the ECC, Jewish values and ideas are the lenses through which the play-based, academically rich curriculum is viewed.
Located on 10 acres of beautiful grounds, the outdoor classroom becomes inspiration for the curriculum. In addition to the large playground, children also help plant and maintain an organic garden and take advantage of the nature trails on site. Inside, children are exposed to active exploration through blocks, art and dramatic play as well as language development and a variety of approaches to solving problems and developing social skills and strategies. Included in the school curriculum are yoga, library, cooking and field trips to local businesses and cultural centers.
“Starting in the Fall of 2012, we are excited to offer an optional fifth day for three and four year olds,” said ECC Director Jane Emmer. “We listened to some of our current parents and want to do everything we can to best prepare our students for kindergarten.” The program for two year olds will continue to be an option two or three days per week.
During the summer, the Jewish Family Congregation also offers a half-day summer program for 3-5 year olds, and for the first time, will offer a two day drop off camp for two year olds on Wednesdays and
Fridays from 10-12. The summer program is flexible, sign up for a 3 or 5 day option and week to week.
