Temple Beth Avodah Early Learning Center is dedicated to providing a warm, nurturing, safe, and stimulating preschool environment for children. Our nursery school provides an environment that promotes Jewish values including respect for oneself and others, and a love of learning. Our low teacher-student ratio enables us to focus on the social, intellectual, emotional, and physical needs of each child. Our curriculum fosters choice and growth appropriate to each child’s development. If you have further questions, please email Heidi Baker, Director of Education, or call 617.527.0045, ext. 110.
