Beth Emet is a diverse, multigenerational Reform community with a dynamic approach to Judaism. Our congregation seeks to create a spiritually vibrant, socially conscious, intellectually challenging, and deeply caring environment firmly rooted in Jewish tradition and values.

All of Beth Emet's Early Childhood classes offer children the opportunity to grow and learn in a safe, stimulating Jewish environment. Daily routines differ depending on the ages of the children, and generally include a welcome circle each morning, free play time, clean up, snack, storybook time, and the opportunity to play in our indoor or outdoor playground. Schedules are designed to keep transitions to a minimum and allow children to become comfortable with the predictable routine.
