Our Schechter family is growing with the opening of our Infant Care Center in the B’nai Jeshurun facility. We will be welcoming infants and toddlers starting at six weeks of age into this warm, caring and nurturing environment.
We’re excited to be creating a program where parents will feel comfortable entrusting their children into our care. We want to be our parents’ partners as their children grow and develop from infants to toddlers to young children and as they move into their teen years. We want to share in your joy over developmental milestones and hold your hand through those more challenging moments of parenting.
Our Infant Care Center is about providing a Schechter experience at the earliest age and offering a much-needed resource to Jewish Cleveland. We’re putting the finishing touches on our new home next door and we’re grateful to our host, B’nai Jeshurun Congregation, for welcoming us in. These finishing touches will create an inviting environment for infants and toddlers filled with toys for a range of ages and spaces to explore for our crawlers and toddlers.
The Infant Care Center will deliver a low child-to-teacher ratio and a warm, welcoming environment supervised by Schechter’s well-trained and excellent Early Childhood Center (ECC) staff. The environment will promote healthy child development and flex with each child’s needs through careful observation of each child. It will foster growth towards independence, and we will partner with parents to meet their desires for their children’s care and well-being.
Not only do we care about providing warmth, education and support to our students, now starting at a VERY early age, but we are able to provide great resources for our parents, as well. We’re also excited that our brand new lunch and learn series, led by school counselor, Mandy DuBro, is kicking off soon. The sessions are focused on the book, How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, written by two Jewish moms and child care experts. Each session will help us build our toolbox as parents. Join us for this engaging series of workshops during the last two Fridays of each month starting in February. You can find more information at www.grossschechter.org/lunchandlearn.
Please help us spread the word about our new program and all of the wonderful ways that Schechter is “growing”.
