EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER
>> Click here for the 2013-14 ECC Calendar.
Welcome to Temple Israel’s Early Childhood Center—the ECC. This is a place where children learn, laugh, sing and explore in a warm and nurturing, Jewish environment. Open to Temple members, our local neighborhood and the broader Twin Cities community, the ECC takes an innovative, caring approach to early childhood education.
Children learn through experience, and the more fun and engaging the experience, the more children grow. Our staff weave stories, songs, art exploration, and investigation of science, math and language, into experiences that teach about Jewish holidays, mitzvot (good deeds), and values.
Our ECC curriculum is based on a combination of Creative Curriculum™ and the resource book Jewish Every Day. Our program offers a vibrant approach to social, emotional, cognitive and physical development for our sixteen month olds through pre-kindergarteners. With two, three, and five day programs, early and afternoon care and wonderful enrichment classes, come see how your child will thrive at the ECC.
For more information or to schedule a tour, please contact ECC Director Trish Mintz at 612-374-0334 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
