The First Jewish Early Childhood Network (JECN) Meeting of 2019-2020
Posted on 09/13/2019 @ 01:00 PM
Early Childhood Education Directors from 15 of our early childhood programs in Miami Dade County convened their first Jewish Early Childhood Network (JECN) meeting of 2019-2020 this week. How fitting that at the start of this new school year, the gathering’s theme was “New Beginnings.”
The network welcomed new colleagues from Temple Beth Am, The Gordon School, and Temple Sinai of North Dade. They welcomed a colleague to her new position at Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus. The educators shared new aspects of their ECE programs and they renewed their connection to Rosh haShanah, the New Year, through text study linking major concepts of Rosh haShanah to their own ECE practices.
Joy Schandler, Director of Early Childhood Education, is privileged to work with the JECN, co-chaired by Miki Feinberg of the Margaux School at Temple Judea and Erica Kalish, of Lehrman Community Day School.
