At Beth Emeth Early Childhood Center (BEECC) we focus on meeting the developmental needs of children in physical, emotional, social, cognitive and spiritual growth. Our school is influenced by the Reggio Emilia Approach, which is built upon the fundamental principles of child development and is known around the world for its innovative and child-centered philosophy. BEECC takes an experiential and intentional approach to teaching and learning; we believe that all children are naturally curious and competent and have unlimited potential to become life-long learners with strong Jewish values.
