- student life
A Solomon Schechter education extends beyond the classroom and into the world. Students in the Early Childhood Program participate in the following activities and events:
Building community at Schechter begins in your child’s first year. Schechter’s Early Childhood students partner with older students for special activities that relate to a topic exploration or holiday. Bonds form and students of all ages regularly greet each other in the halls with high-fives and hugs. Over the years, these friendships grow and follow the children as they move through the grades.
Field trips provide an important means of enriching students’ education through direct experiences. Each trip is carefully selected and designed to enhance topics explored in class, while providing hands-on experiential learning.
All long-term projects at Schechter incorporate the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and G'milut chasadim (acts of loving kindness) by reaching into the community.
At Schechter, we are committed to the home-school partnership. Parents of our Early Childhood Program students play an active role in the students’ journeys. We welcome and encourage parent volunteers in the classroom, during field trips, and in celebrating major events.
