Holly Rofé Early Learning Centre
Education during the early years is crucial for instilling a strong Jewish identity in children, ensuring the most suitable conditions for brain development and helping young children develop important interpersonal relationships.
The Holly Rofé Early Learning Centre serves as a stepping stone to our Elementary School program, providing the foundation and framework for the transition to our other Carmel schools.
The most important and decisive age in education is early childhood
Yesodat ha Chinuch
At the Holly Rofé Early Learning Centre, we honour our history and our heritage by providing a rich and unique learning experience that values our traditions and culture. Through daily practice, the children gain a knowledge and understanding of the traditions, celebrations and milestones in the Hebrew calendar. Jewish holidays are celebrated, and through our Shabbat parties, children enjoy the warmth and spirituality so important to community.
From a young age, children are taught to embrace the values of different mitzvot, tzedaka and kindness to others. Parents and caregivers are invited to join with us on this journey of early Jewish discovery.
Learning Through Play
At the Holly Rofé Early Learning Centre, we believe that children learn best through play and experiences. Play provides important opportunities for children to experiment, explore, discover and create. Children learn to socialise and interact with one another through play, and the need for group work, collaboration and kindness towards each other can be introduced and fostered from this young age. Through play, teachers can observe the strengths and areas for improvement in the children and can tailor-design their program to meet those needs.
