The Early Childhood Center at Adath Emanu-El believes in an emergent and child centered approach to learning. We believe in creating inclusive environments where children of diverse backgrounds and abilities can succeed and learn organically as individuals. Young children acquire new skills and knowledge best through play and inquiry. Our ECC provides opportunities for these learning experiences within a warm, supportive, and nurturing environment. We respect and celebrate each child’s unique qualities as we facilitate their cognitive, physical, social, emotional  and linguistic development. Through our rich and engaging environment, comprised of consistent routines and exploratory play opportunities, we inspire children to grow and learn at their own pace.
