We Are JPLAY!
We believe that every child has a voice. We view our children as capable, competent, and powerful.
We believe that family is an intricate part of our learning community.
We believe that the environment plays a crucial part in the children's learning.
We believe that learning is a process of construction, growth, reflection, and reconstruction.
We believe that the teachers serve as a guide to facilitate learning experiences and nurture growth.
We respect, listen to and encourage all forms of children's expression.
We welcome the active participation and insight of our families, and provide opportunities to enhance adult learning.
We intentionally design the physical space of the school community to inspire ideas, spark questions and set the stage for positive social interactions.
We capture and document the children's experiences to make the process of learning visible to all.
We observe, collaborate and adapt our learning environment based upon the needs and interests of the children, using our knowledge of child development and developmentally appropriate practice to help guide our decisions.
We create a lifelong love of Jewish learning.
