Center for Early Education

About CEE

The Shirat Hayam Center for Early Education is a Reggio inspired educational experience which fosters development of the “whole” child. Our newly renovated classrooms and outdoor space encourage exploration, creativity, and cooperation. We specialize in providing a nurturing environment which allows for flexible schedules and daily enrichment classes.

Weekly enrichment: Music with Mr. Philip, Mindfulness with Leda Elliot, Shabbat with Rabbi Michael and Cantor Sarah, Jewish culture, and values!

Our Philosophy

The Shirat Hayam Center for Early Education believes that children learn best through play.  It is our goal to create a developmentally appropriate environment which fosters an appreciation for enrichment and discovery.  It is our belief that nurturing the “whole’ child through hands-on early learning experiences will create a lifelong love for learning.   Inclusion, family connections, and a commitment to developmentally appropriate learning  are fundamental aspects which enkindle our diverse Shirat Hayam Family.

A note from the CENTER FOR Early Education….

We were so excited to partner with SPUR this past summer to provide organic produce to those facing food insecurity in our community. Thanks to the helpful hands of our students and teachers we planted, weeded, and harvested throughout the season and saw a bountiful amount of food. Watch our garden grow again in the spring. We will continue to need a parent volunteer to sign up and deliver this produce to the Anchor Pantry in Swampscott. Watch for signups and to learn more about SPUR and its programs, click here!
