The GFECC is an NAEYC-accredited program that focuses on developmentally appropriate curriculum for young children. Our entire curriculum is based on the latest research in early childhood education. Learning activities are geared to the child’s developmental stage, individual ability and unique interests.
GFECC curriculum focuses on the development of the whole child, using social and emotional development as the unshakable foundation for the stage-by-stage development of cognitive, language, physical, scientific, creative, and self-help skills. This instruction philosophy prepares children for the transition into school.
Academic Building Blocks
Our program is designed to lay a foundation for academic success in language and literacy, math, science and social skills.
Constructivist Approach To Learning
Students are viewed as active participants in their own learning. This ignites a curiosity and love for learning.
Intentional Experiential Learning Environments
To positively support teaching and learning, our environment is set up with the consideration of how children learn and develop best. We call it "the third teacher."
We see play as the driving force behind the development of imagination and intelligence, language, social skills, and physical abilities in young children.
We strive to foster an environment of trust and collaboration through secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships.
Sense of Self
To build self-confidence and discover their potential, students are empowered to explore their individual talents.
We inspire children to embrace the values and traditions of Jewish life.
Our warm and nurturing environment encourages sharing, caring and getting along.
