As part of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s ongoing commitment to excellence in Jewish early childhood education, a new peer-to-peer professional network of six Studio Educators from our Pittsburgh JECEI/Bonim Beyachad early childhood education centers has been formed. Studio Educators from Beth Shalom, Community Day School, Squirrel Hill JCC, Temple Emanuel, Temple Ohav Shalom and Yeshiva were selected by their school directors to participate in this unique professional development opportunity being facilitated by Pittsburgh JECEI/Bonim Beyachad consultant, Barbara Moser. This on-going shared learning opportunity has been created to further support the studio educators and their centers as they continue to find inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach through a Jewish lens.
