Please note that even if your child does not require a 1:1 in a small-contained school environment, he/she may need more support in this very active, inclusive, social environment. The Miracle Project and The Wallis staff reserves the right to request professional support if we feel your child requires the support needed to be able to be successful in class. Although the class will include volunteers to act as peer role models and co-actors, the volunteers are NOT professionals, and may not be expected to take the place of a paid professional interventionist. And finally, if after we make reasonable attempts to engage your child it is determined that they are unable to remain for the duration of the program on any or all days, we will contact you to pick them up.

The AAE ECC offers a loving, warm and welcoming environment where children are valued for their individuality. We take our inspiration from many sources, primarily Jewish teachings and the Reggio Emilia curriculum philosophy, within a safe, creative and stimulating setting. The children's Jewish experiences are based upon the joy of celebration, song, ritual, and the important connection between the community and the family. The children develop a sense of pride in and a love for their Jewish heritage and the special ways we celebrate Judaism as part of Jewish family life. Every child is unique, with their own interests, learning style, growth timetable, and culture. Learning takes place through our developmentally-based program that values the child's innate curiosity, ability and creativity, as teachers help to shape the curriculum around the children's ideas. When given the time, space, and opportunity to interact in a meaningful environment, a child will construct new ideas through investigation and research in order to link them to existing knowledge. These opportunities enable children to develop a strong sense of community, self-reliance, and are given the foundation for critical thinking necessary throughout life. Extended Hours 7:30am-6pm.
