Temple Emanuel Early Child Center5

We felt forced to remove our child from Pressman Academy ECC. Our sons behaviour at the school and subsequently at home began to spiral out of control. It was a very disappointing and frustrating experience with staff and management at the Pressman ECC. We feel so lucky to have found Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills.Our son is now in such a loving and nurturing place with amazing teachers that refer to him as 'my love'. He is thriving and he feels special and appreciated. He has regained his confidence and walks around with a smile on his face. A complete 360 turn-around. At this school teachers play with the children its amazing to see. They go down the slides, blow bubbles, role play....they are fully involved. You can feel the love. Thank you to his teachers Terre and Julie you are truly outstanding!!! Thank you also to all the other teachers at the school that make you feel so welcome everyday. Manager Stacy is to be applauded for the amazing team she has put together. Words are not enough to express our gratitude.
We could not have been luckier to have enrolled in Temple Emanuel's ECC under the direction of Stacy Kesner. We have since graduated from 2 years spent at the ECC (Group 2 with teacher Mojdeh, and Group 4 with teacher Lilya, and all of the amazing teaching assistants and specialists), and have stayed with the temple, now at the dayschool (TEADS) in kindergarten. This school is top notch; my son Drew has absolutely flourished here, and we have created an entire second family that I wouldn't trade for the world. The children get along wonderfully, and there is a sense of harmony and joy all year long. The learning fundamentals, the arts and crafts, the music and theater, the outdoor activities, and the religious festivities have together molded my son into a little Renaissance man--willingly involved in all he can get his hands on, and loving every minute of it. A phenomenal foundation has been laid down for Drew, and I would hope that all parents would come to tour the school (and the day school for K+ children) and see all that the school and it's stellar staff have to offer. I am a working-parent, yet I insist upon being as involved as I can with the school due to pride.
