PROVIDENCE – The Jewish Alliance Early Childhood Program at Temple Habonim has much to offer. Hands-on lessons are integrated into the curriculum to provide a fun way to learn. The Habonim satellite has many resources to support a Reggio Emilia educational approach where the child is an active participant in her/his own learning.
The program is a multi-age classroom of children three to five years old. The multi-age setting allows the students to develop at their own pace. The Center provides many opportunities for children to nurture as well as to lead – important social skills for children to acquire for success in future schooling.
The small student-teacher ratio of 12 to 2 creates an intimate environment that allows for each student’s individual needs and learning style to be met. The physical space provided by the setting at Temple Habonim is bright and inviting. Housed in a synagogue, the Barrington Early Childhood Center provides exposure to an environment rich in Jewish values and allows for many alternative learning opportunities.
Enrollment for the 2014-15 school year is flexible – up to five days a week from 9 a.m. to noon, as well as options for early arrival at 8 a.m. and extended day until 3 p.m.
