At the Judy Gordon Early Learning Center, we are a community of learners that work together, ask questions, and explore big concepts that help to promote the growth and development of each child. We see children as active learners who engage in exploring the world around them to make discoveries and foster skills that build the foundation of developing a love of learning.
Jewish values are woven into our daily curriculum and it is our hope that children develop a positive Jewish identity through exploring the richness of Jewish holidays, traditions, and values. We guide our children and families in exploring these basic principles:
Our community is warm, caring and inclusive. All children and families are welcome in school. We have and will continue to welcome children and parents of a variety of religious and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientation and abilities.
Our program is based on the needs of the individual child. Research shows that children learn best through play and experimentation. Therefore, we provide a variety of experiences in our bi-cultural curriculum to foster children’s development of new skills and self-confidence. We strive to be an inclusive community and recognize the strengths and talents all children and families bring to our school.
