Seeds of Wonder

A Reggio Emilia-inspired class for children ages 15-27 months and their trusted adults

Seeds of Wonder is a “grown-up and me” morning class for children ages 15-22 months that gives your child a wonderful opportunity to participate in a classroom environment with a trusted adult. Your child will enjoy socializing with other children and will benefit from the exciting materials and resources at the ECC. The class will include a short Friend’s Lunch, a special time to share a meal and socialize. Our 2018 winter/spring session will run for eighteen weeks, January 9-May 31, 2018. Classes will be held Tuesdays and/or Thursdays, from 11:45 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Synagogue membership is not required.

Seeds of Wonder Separation, for children 18-27 months, will include a drop-off separation program. A well thought out phase-in period will help children find comfort from trusted and experienced teachers. Our 2018 winter/spring class will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:15-11:15 a.m. Thirty-six sessions will run January 9-May 31, 2018. A special introductory synagogue dues rate will be included in tuition for families that are not current synagogue members.
