In an effort to cater to families with active lifestyles and working parents who expect high-quality education and childcare, Beth Emet Synagogue Early Childhood Program will offer optional full day programming (8:00 am- 6:00pm) for the upcoming 2014-15 school year.
“Knowing that families have hectic lives, and therefore require additional childcare, we have created a program that allows children to stay in the same school environment all day.” said Kathy Kaberon, Director of the Early Childhood Program. She went on to say, “We explored extended day options during the 2013-14 school year and found that the children thrive when ‘staying late,’ and the parents appreciate the convenience. It’s a family-like atmosphere.”
Beginning in September of 2014, the day will begin with Early Birds, from 8:00-9:15 am. The classroom program, from 9:15-11:45 is followed by Lunch Bunch (11:45-1:15), and then Full Day Fun, until either 4 pm or 6 pm. Lunch Bunch will include movement/yoga, storytelling, science, drama and art, as well as either hot catered lunch or cold lunch from home. All children ages 3, 4 and 5 will qualify for the longer day. Families will be able register for these options before the school year begins at discounted rates or pay a daily rate. Of course morning-only nursery school is still an option too!
Beth Emet offers a stimulating, nurturing and compassionate environment that builds on children’s curiosity and love of learning, and enriches all areas of children’s development. The school integrates Jewish values and traditions into a play-based curriculum. Beth Emet is a NAEYC accredited program.
Priority registration begins January 6, 2014, for Beth Emet members, currently enrolled families and alumni families. Community registration opens on January 20.
