About Us

 

The mission of The Weinberg Early Learning Center is to provide a rich and joyous learning environment for young children that will stimulate their minds, nurture their souls and embrace the wonder and beauty of our Jewish heritage.

We accomplish our mission through the following philosophies and goals by:

  • Providing a fun, creative, innovative and experiential learning environment to optimize learning and growth;
  •  Creating a center-based curriculum, which includes language, reading and literature, math, science, music, and art;
  • Structuring our curriculum around the principles of leading educators: Dewey, Piaget and Reggio - both concrete and experientially based;
  • Giving our young children every opportunity to develop emotionally, mentally and cognitively;
  •  Utilizing every sense to help each and every child develop his/her mind at his/her individual pace;
  • Building expressive and receptive language skills;
  •  Maximizing each child’s innate potential and unique skills to facilitate his/her maximum social and academic success in all future endeavors;
  • Fostering a positive self concept in each child;
  • Building a foundation in Jewish rituals and customs, Hebrew language and prayer, the importance of social justice, and the land and culture of Israel, all in a Reform Jewish context;
  •  Developing a sense of community for children and parents in which they can celebrate and appreciate their faith;
  • Exposing our children to many different cultures and backgrounds to ensure that they will have respect for all people and backgrounds;
  • Developing a safe, nurturing, and loving environment among children, parents and teachers in our school;
  • Encouraging parents to become involved members of our school where warmth, kindness and acceptance will be the hallmarks of The Weinberg Early Learning Center.

 

Dear WELC Families:

I am so honored to be the Director of the Weinberg Early Learning Center.  The WELC has been my home for the past 13 years as a teacher, camp director, and most recently the assistant director.  As your new Director, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year!

We have been undergoing some exciting changes this past summer here at WELC. We are thrilled to open our doors to a freshly renovated school and a new infant program! We are looking forward to serving ALL the young children of our treasured families and community.

We have many wonderful things in store for you and your children this year. As Director, I am planning additional programming, clear and concise communication, and the implementation of a new STEAM classroom for our 3, 4, and 5 year olds. As always, WELC will continue to provide a rich and joyous learning environment for your children that will stimulate their minds, nurture their souls and embrace the wonder and beauty of Judaism.

Thank you for entrusting your most precious people to us. I look forward to a wonderful year and getting to know your children and your families better.

Regards,

Sarah Shinsky
