Profile: Temple Emanuel Early Childhood Center was founded 10 years ago as an integral part of a larger community that honors spiritual and intellectual growth, a deep appreciation of the natural environment, a commitment to social service, and a deep respect for the diversity of our community. Starting with a blank canvas, a strong vision, and a group of dedicated early childhood educators, we have grown into one of the most highly respected early childhood programs in the D.C. Metropolitan area.

Our pedagogy is based on creating a culture of collaborative learning inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education and the rich Jewish values of Temple Emanuel. Our program reflects our belief that children possess a natural capacity for joy and wonder. Our image of the child is that they are capable and competent learners. We create an enriching environment, giving our children vast opportunities to interweave cognitive and creative ways of thinking and learning. We invite you to join our community and to explore, discover, and create.
