Happy Birthday , Dr. Seuss!

March 2nd was Dr. Seuss’s birthday—what better way to celebrate than to read! Dr. Seuss  (Theodor Seuss Geisel ) would  have been 116 this year. The Early School students of Temple B’nai Abraham celebrated his birthday and legacy by reading Dr Seuss’s well-known book  Cat in the Hat , originally published in 1957. With the book as a backdrop,  the students created their own version of the Cat in the Hat’s  distinctive “headgear.” Dr. Seuss forever changed the way children’s books were written and continues to inspire generations.

Learning About Our Environment

Guess Hoo-Hoo-Hoo Came to the TBA Early School? The Raptor Trust… through their outreach program, the young students learned about the special adaptations,  sounds and senses which make owls such awesome nocturnal creatures. There were bird displays, nests, feathers, and meeting the live owl,  Winkie, all part of the fun interactive program.

Early Childhood Education

Successful Learning In An Innovative Educational Environment

from infants to five-year-olds

The Early School is a child’s first formal learning experience involving progressive development in which each level has its own age-specific program and goals. Its overriding objective is to provide an educational and emotional foundation for success when entering kindergarten.

Our professional staff believes that children are unique individuals and by building on each child’s strengths and abilities, all children will be successful learners.

Offering a STEAM* based comprehensive early childhood curriculum, all programs are open to members and nonmembers.  (*Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics)

We offer before and after care hours for your child with our professional staff.

Celebrating Jewish holidays and preparing for Shabbat; becoming familiar with Jewish symbols, reciting appropriate blessings over snack and teaching Jewish values in an age appropriate way are integral parts of our educational landscape.

Please continue to browse our website for additional information, or to contact Debbie Aronson Ziering, Director of Early Childhood Education, 973.994.7016 for an appointment to visit our outstanding school.
