Jewish Learning Venture believes that families raising young Jewish children across Greater Philadelphia must have access to educational opportunities of excellence, both in their Jewish and secular educational endeavors in the early years.
In order to ensure that families receive the best educational experience possible, we provide a selection of professional development opportunities for directors and teachers in early childhood centers.
why it matters
Jewish early childhood education centers must meet a number of important goals.
We work directly with directors of early childhood education centers to help them identify their areas of greatest need and customize our services to meet those needs onsite.
First and foremost, they must provide educational excellence in order to prepare students for a lifetime of learning.
Second, they must provide warm and inviting Jewish spaces where children build positive associations with their Jewish identities.
And third, Jewish early childhood centers must help families feel connected to and empowered by the Jewish community.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
Jewish Learning Venture is here to ensure that your early childhood program best meets the needs of your students and their families.
Are you looking for professional development opportunities? Our annual Yom Limmud Conferences provide accredited workshops on a variety of topics to support your work in the classroom. Jewish Learning Venture also brings workshops straight to schools to support your entire faculty.
Your donation will make it possible to provide accredited workshops and consultation services for early childhood educators throughout the year. A donation of $36 will purchase materials for workshops, $750 will sponsor a congregation’s consultation project, and $5,000 will sponsor an educator conference.
