Early Childhood Jewish Education
Hebrew College's Early Childhood Institute, founded in 1987, is dedicated to expanding and deepening the Judaic and pedagogic knowledge and skills of early childhood educators, clergy and professionals working with children and families (infant through second grade). Our certificate, degree and professional-development programs reach out to many communities within and beyond the Greater Boston area.
For young children, Jewish learning should be an exciting adventure that inspires a lifelong love of Judaism. This specialization equips you with the knowledge and skills to integrate the study of Jewish values, traditions, culture and Hebrew language with developmentally appropriate methods for teaching young children and their families.
