JECC Beit Blumi is a small, intimate and progressive Jewish pre-school inspired by the principles of the Reggio Emilia philosophy. JECC Beit Blumi welcomes every child regardless of background or affiliation and appreciates their differences. Central to the philosophy is a deep respect for the potential and competency of children. We honor and respect their voices and embrace them as young individuals. Our aim is to connect children to the beauty of the natural world through a learning environment that has been constructed with thought and grace, while tending to their emotional growth and wellbeing. The curriculum is holistically woven with the timeless values and morals of our heritage, coming alive through rich lessons conceptualized by teachers in such a way that the children learn through individualized instruction and through their own discovery, hypotheses and exploration.
At the JECC Beit Blumi we see each child as a unique and precious gift entrusted into our care. This concept is what governs our school’s educational approach. At JECC Beit Blumi, emphasis is placed on the individual child and on encouraging each child’s innate inquisitiveness and thirst for knowledge. Small classes and low student-teacher ratios ensure each child receives individual and caring attention.
Our school has been rated 5 Stars by Quality Counts for two consecutive years. This rating is scored on the quality of the school’s facility, staff qualifications, curriculum, staff interaction with students, administrative excellence and more. We are most proud to have always received perfect VPK scores in Kindergarten Readiness Rates.
