Early Childhood Program (ECP)

Early Childhood Program (ECP)

At KTI Early Childhood Program we see each child as a unique and precious gift entrusted to our care. We offer a warm, creative, loving environment - a home away from home - where children spend their days learning, exploring, and growing. Licensed by the Office for Children and Family Services (OCFS) and accredited by the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), we create a self-rewarding, joyous, and non-competitive atmosphere where individuality is nurtured and where program activities help children learn more about Jewish heritage, values, and traditions through active learning.

We believe that. . . 

  • Loving, trusting, and respecting each child fosters their love, trust, and respect for others
  • A safe and happy environment promotes a natural curiosity and desire to learn
  • Each child has an innate inquisitiveness and thirst for knowledge
  • Each child can and should be guided to a positive self-image
  • Quality teachers and specialists are the keys to weaving age-appropriate academic goals
  • Children deserve to have teachers whose values enable them to be excellent role models
  • Home is the fulcrum of a child's development. We strive to support and complement the family in order to promote those bonds.

And most importantly. . . play is the work of children!

We share with children and their families the joys of Jewish culture. We believe that our children are a part of a web of interconnected relationships, and we encourage open dialogue between families and our entire KTI community.
