Our Mission

The Shir Hadash Early Childhood Center creates a safe and nurturing Jewish early childhood environment, inspired by the philosophy of Reggio Emilia, rooted in our congregational community and Reform Jewish values. The ECC welcomes families of all faiths. Membership in Congregation Shir Hadash is not required.

Shir Hadash Early Childhood Center(SHECC) is a fully licensed program for children ages 2-5 (before a child enters Kindergarten). Children must be 2 years old to begin in the Center. A child is not required to be toilet trained to join our program in the 2s or mixed-age classes. Our programs incorporate the Reggio style of investigation in the areas of nature, art, play, music, sports, and creativity. This approach seeks to help children connect to the knowledge they already have, expand upon that base of knowledge, and to internalize the skills of observing, communicating, questioning and information gathering. Learn more about our school year and summer programs.

Connections to art, music, movement, and nature are built during this process. Not only are the teachers and children a part of this process, but families and the community are involved as well. Learn more about the curriculum and about the Reggio Philosophy.
