Welcome to the Rabbi Steven Foster Early Learning Center at Temple Emanuel -
- where we strive to nurture each child's innate sense of wonder and curiosity by providing them a safe, inviting place to learn and explore. Small class sizes and a play-based environment provide an opportunity for discovery, creative-thinking and collaboration. Our methods guide and inspire us to maintain a high level of respect for each child as we honor their uniquely individual experience here at our school. We serve children ages 12 months - Kindergarten.
A Message From Our Director
After working in early childhood for over 20 years, I know it is vital that we create cultures and conditions which honor children and their development as well as amplify adult expertise in interacting with children, as we support their social and emotional growth. The acquisition of social and emotional skills is paramount to the advancement of cognitive growth. Through collaboration, connection and communication, we construct optimal environments for children and families. The Foster ELC is the place where discovery meets community. I am so happy to welcome you to our school family and wish you well on the exciting journey of parenthood!
