Early Childhood Center (ECC)

Welcome to the Beth Tikvah Congregation Early Childhood Center (ECC). Here your child will be part of a warm, nurturing, supportive and inclusive environment. Our children are provided opportunities to grow intellectually, emotionally, socially and cognitively. Our day is balanced between structured learning time, and unstructured exploration time. We promote our children's self image and follow a Reggio-inspired curriculum that allows children to construct knowledge, and feel they have ownership in learning by doing. 

We have classes for children ages 6-months to 4-years!

  • 6-24 Months (Parent/Infant class)
  • 2-Year-Olds
  • 3-Year-Olds
  • 4-Year-Olds
