At the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue Early Childhood Center, play is at the heart of the learning process. We provide children ages 18 months through 5 years with a nurturing, welcoming, and stimulating environment. Classroom experiences are infused with Jewish values and rituals. Our philosophy is based on the world-renowned schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, which value children as capable, strong, and rich with wonder and knowledge.
