Rabbi Steven Foster Early Learning Center at Temple Emanuel
51 Grape ST, Denver 80220
At Temple Emanuel Early Childhood Center they strive to nurture each child's innate sense of wonder and curiosity by providing them a safe, inviting place to learn and explore. They believe the foundation for all cognitive growth is the development of social and emotional skills, thereby offering children a loving and responsive environment. They have small class sizes and a play-based environment provide an opportunity for discovery, creative-thinking and collaboration. Their Emergent Curriculum encourages children to make their own choices, explore their own ideas and follow their own interests through the guidance and expertise of their teachers. Their approach to early childhood education is informed by Jewish values and progressive educational practices, primarily the Reggio Emilia Approach and Social/Emotional Intelligence programs. These methods guide and inspire them to maintain a high level of respect for each child as they honor their uniquely individual experience at their school.
