At West Suburban Temple Har Zion Early Childhood Program we believe that learning should be an adventure.  Our teachers explore with the children and encourage them to question, research and discover in an environment rich with open-ended materials. 

Children learn when they are excited and interested in a topic, just as many adults do.   When children come to us with a question we do not simply give them the answer; we respond by asking the child what they think, how they could find the answer and what they need.  Through this process, children develop confidence and independence with encouragement from our teachers, their parents and the community around us.
