The teachers at the CBE ELC support experimental learning to foster positive child growth and development. They facilitate a developmentally appropriate early childhood curriculum within a joyful Jewish setting. They value a flexible structure, and create warm, nurturing environments in which children are encouraged to explore, discover and learn.
Teachers meet to discuss classroom management, curriculum planning, individual children’s progress and relationships with parents. Our staff members receive individual supervision from the Director and participate in a review process twice yearly as well as professional development opportunities. All of our teachers are trained in first-aid, CPR and infection control procedures.
