About Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El Early Childhood Center
The Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El Early Childhood Center was founded over 45 years ago and has long been admired as one of the best preschools in our community. Our preschool and kindergarten (for children ages 3-6) is licensed by the PA Department of Education. Our license assures you that your child’s teachers are providing a 21st century education in a developmentally appropriate environment. We do not do this with worksheets and rote learning, but through carefully planned learning environments and experiences. As Heather Shumaker, a noted early childhood commentator and writer, says, “Times have changed, but children haven’t. Children are on the same evolutionary path they’ve always been on.” Through meaningful play our children build cognitive, problem-solving, memory, and social-emotional skills to build a love of learning for its own sake so that they are successful life-long learners. Our infant and toddler programs (for children ages 3 months through age 2) practice this same philosophy of education while ensuring your child is well cared for under the auspices of the PA Department of Human Services (formerly, the Department of Public Welfare).
