The Brotherhood Synagogue Nursery School is based on thesocial/emotional theory that children learn by doing. Through active involvement in their environment, children add pieces of information to what they already know, generating new ideas about the world around them. By providing an enriched, stimulating and safe environment filled with a balance of emergent child-initiated, child-directed and more structured teacher-directed learning experiences, we offer children the opportunity to learn and grow in skills necessary to becoming autonomous, productive individuals.
Because independence is an outgrowth of trust, we maintain small classes and high teacher-to-child ratios. In this environment children can feel safe and encouraged to explore both a variety of materials and their relationships with peers and adults. Children feel important and valued when others listen to them, seek out their ideas, and allow them to express themselves.
All this is accomplished through a Jewish lens. Our curriculum is full of opportunities to eat, taste, touch, and sing about the rhythms and cycles of the Jewish year when the holidays make their appearance throughout the year. At Brotherhood, we imbue daily life with Jewish values, informed by the traditions of our ancestors.
