At the Early Childhood Center at Stephen Wise Free Synagogue, play is at the heart of learning. Our stimulating programs for children ages 18 months through 5 years provide a nurturing environment, 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.
