“It is our goal here at Tem­ple Si­nai to help de­velop the child’s so­cial, emo­tional, in­tel­lec­tual and phys­i­cal ca­pa­bil­i­ties to the fullest. We want the chil­dren to love school and love learn­ing. And I be­lieve, when the school and fam­i­lies work to­gether, the child then knows that school is a happy and safe place to come and ex­plore,” says An­drea Zecharia, Preschool Di­rec­tor.

The tra­di­tional proverb “It takes a vil­lage to raise a child” is the guid­ing prin­ci­ple of Tem­ple Si­nai Com­mu­nity Preschool. Zecharia rec­og­nizes that for chil­dren to thrive it takes the sup­port and en­cour­age­ment of an en­tire com­mu­nity. She en­deav­ours to build ex­em­plary part­ner­ships with both the chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.

For over 26 years, 19 of those at Tem­ple Si­nai, Zecharia has been col­lab­o­rat­ing with fam­i­lies and lay­ing the foun­da­tion of a pos­i­tive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment for young chil­dren. “Be­ing able to cre­ate and de­velop the feel­ing of com­mu­nity here is a goal I strive for ev­ery day,” Zecharia says. “We pro­vide on­go­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop this con­nec­tion, and we wel­come and en­cour­age par­ent in­volve­ment as we play, learn and grow to­gether.”
