About – Our Staff
The adult’s role in children’s journey is to support and facilitate their growth and development. To assume this role- to teach young children, is a great privilege and responsibility. Teaching is a mission – a valued and time-honored Jewish tradition.
We look for teachers who are passionate and will offer a nurturing experience for the children. Our teachers have a deep understanding of children and the way they think, and have the desire to create meaningful relationships with the children. All our teachers believe in the importance of seeing each child as an individual. Our teachers plan and adapt the curriculum and the environment to meet the needs of each child.
In the Reggio Emelia approach, the teacher sees themselves as a learner – alongside the children – open to new thoughts and ideas. The teacher listens carefully to the children, observes and documents their work, and provokes and stimulates their thinking. As educators, we are committed to strengthening and enriching our knowledge of young children by continuing our own education.
Our teachers are professionals who encourage our children to reflect, to be independent, to explore, to cooperate, to negotiate, to wonder, to love and to laugh.
