Welcome to Temple Beth-El’s Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC), where we are committed to building an inclusive and diverse Jewish community of learners. We serve children 14 months to 5 years of age in a nurturing environment that recognizes and respects each child and family as valued and active participants in their social, emotional and educational development.

We are the only synagogue in Great Neck with an NAEYC-accredited early childhood program.  National Association for the Education of Young Children accreditation means our program meets the highest national standards for the education of early childhood students.

As a Jewish preschool, we emphasize the richness and joy of Judaism within a diverse and multicultural world. We value each family as individuals as they begin to explore their own family’s relationship to Jewish life. Celebration, joy and connection to Jewish life in the community are a fundamental part of our school’s curriculum. Our school benefits from being housed in one of the nation’s most prominent synagogues, and Jewish community values underpin our approaches.
