Infants (6 Weeks to 18 Months)

Dedicated care begins with the staff in our Infant room. The Abramson ECEC staff will make your baby feel comfortable and loved from the moment they arrive. Rest assured that your infant is in expert hands, and a nurturing environment.

We encourage parent and staff partnership that will allow for easy transition between home and school. Staff understand the importance of a routine for infant eating, and sleeping, therefore staff will follow your home schedule as closely as they can while your baby is in the infant room.  

Our spacious infant room will allow your baby to explore their environment and practice crucial motor skills safely. Staff assist babies to express themselves through language, and communication skills by reading, singing, talking and playing with your baby. Our age-appropriate toys throughout the classroom will allow your baby to explore textures and sounds.

Young Toddlers (18 to 24 Months)

Welcome to Young Toddlers! Where learning begins with play, socialization and routine.

The Young Toddler classroom maintains a 5:1 ratio with a maximum classroom number of 15 students ranging in age from 12 months to 24 months. There are three main requirements for a child to enter the Young Toddler classroom. They must be walking steadily on their feet in shoes, they must be completely weaned from the bottle and using a sippy cup/thermos, and able to eat solid food by themselves without being fed. The children will be carrying materials to and from the shelves to work on rugs or at a table. They will be walking to the playground, or to different enrichments throughout the day.  

The Young Toddler Curriculum will explore learning through routine, music, movement, play, language and physical development. Staff will encourage literacy, language, and social and emotional learning through activities, stories, redirection and modeling preferred classroom behaviors.


Older Toddlers (24 to 36 Months)

Welcome to Older Toddlers! Where learning through play is creative, hands-on, and engaging inside and outside the classroom.

The Older Toddler classroom maintains a 6:1 ratio with a maximum classroom number of 12 students ranging in age from 2 years to 3 years. There are four main requirements for a child to enter the Older Toddler classroom. They must be fully walking and steady on their feet in shoes, completely using a sippy cup/thermos and/or able to drink out of a child-sized plastic cup, and be completely on solid food, and feeding themselves. 

The Older Toddler Curriculum is an extension of the Young Toddler curriculum with additional milestones. The Older Toddlers will explore learning through play with critical thinking and creative skills. Staff will deliver hands-on lessons that are fun and engaging for every learner that will boost essential learning milestones. 

Potty training will begin in the Older Toddler classroom and parent/teacher collaboration is enforced for a positive experience for all involved. The Older Toddler room children begin to transition from a diaper to a pull up, and when the time is right will transition to underwear. In order to aid in the classroom toileting process, please create a schedule for using the toilet at home.


Preschool (3 to 4 Years)

Welcome to Preschool! Where your child leaves behind their toddler years as their independence and confidence flourishes in a fun, hands-on learning environment. 

The Preschool classroom maintains a 10:1 ratio with a maximum classroom number of 20 students ranging in age from 3 years to 4 years. The requirement for a child to enter the Preschool classroom is that they must be fully potty trained or three quarters of the way potty trained with only occasional in-school accidents.

Preschool Curriculum explores science, math, books, journal writing, language and creative arts. An important skill area for preschool is cognitive development. Preschoolers are able to verbalize more, engage socially, and follow routines. They become more self-sufficient, and independent. They will continue to build upon these developments for years to come.

Pre-K (4 to 5 Years)

Welcome to Pre-K! Where learning is fun and skills will be acquired for a successful year of Pre-K and effortless transition to Kindergarten. 

The Pre-K classroom maintains a 10:1 ratio with a maximum classroom number of 20 students ranging in age from 4 years to 5 years. The requirements for a child to enter the Pre-K classroom is that they must be fully potty trained and be fully independent with minimal guidance of the teacher. 

Pre-K Curriculum explores science, math, books, journal writing, language and creative arts. An important skill area that will be worked on daily is social emotional development. Tools will be introduced to help the children work through classroom behavior, peer conflicts and self regulation.


Summer Camp (Infants to 5 Years)

Summertime is made for playtime! Your child will experience weekly themes, music, nature, arts and crafts, STEM projects, sport enrichments, hands-on activities, and water play. 

Daily water play offers our campers a chance to cool off! Toddlers, young and older, will have a blast running through our many sprinklers, and/or splashing around with their hands in the water tables located on our safe, fenced-in toddler playground. Our above ground pool offers a chance for Preschool and Pre-K potty-trained* campers to experience a different kind of water play. They will learn how to tread water with the use of noodles, blow water bubbles, kick their feet and move their arms, and to be confident in the water. Our pool time is supervised with knowledgeable, water-trained ECEC staff, and an on-site certified trained lifeguard. *Those campers not potty trained will enjoy sprinklers and water table time in our fenced in pool area. 

Camp TBI allows our families to choose between 4 or 8 weeks of camp. All weeks must be consecutive and are available based on staffing. Tuition includes all programs and enrichments. Join us for the summer only or both, school year and summer!

We look forward to a fun filled summer with your child!

                                                                                                   


Testimonials:

My oldest attended the TBI ECEC and now my youngest is there and I can’t imagine us being anywhere else! Aside from the amazing learning environment, the TBI ECEC has a warmth and community feel to it that is so hard to find. They truly treat us like family. I’m in awe of the way the teachers are able to cater to each child’s unique way of learning as well as encouraging their creativity and enthusiasm for new experiences. I love hearing his excitement over all of the things he learned each day. We’re so lucky to have found this wonderful place! Debbie Everett, Current & Past Parent

We love ECEC! Both of our children started in the infant classroom and are still at the school. The teachers treat each child as if they were their own. Every day they get to enjoy new fun activities in a safe and accepting environment. We’re so grateful to ECEC for taking such great care of our children! MG, Current Parent

My daughter went to TBI's Abramson ECEC from 3 months old through Pre-K, and if you asked me to rate the experience, I would give it 2-thumbs-up, 5-stars, 10-out-of-10 AND a gold medal. Our daughter was more than ready for kindergarten in the Wissahickon SD, the teachers and staff became family and my daughter was always happy and well-loved. Lynda Lyons, Past Parent

The ECEC has been my childrens’ second home. The staff is phenomenal and I know that when I drop off my kids that they will not only be cared for, but loved by the teachers. My older son is thriving in kindergarten thanks to the wonderful learning experience he had at the ECEC. I know it's cliche, but it truly feels like a family to be at the ECEC and I couldn't imagine a better place to send my kids. Pamela Kuperstein, Current Parent

My child has been attending daycare at Leonard and Madlyn Abramson ECEC at TBI since he was three months old. We have had a wonderful experience there. The staff all know my son and have developed a connection with him. They excel at maintaining open lines of communication to ensure that both parents and teachers are on the same page to provide continuity and stability. The level of dedication is heartwarming and I know I am sending him to a place where he is cared for.  — Orli Gross, Current Parent

We could not have been happier about our experience at the TBI Abramson ECEC for our daughter.  She started in the infant room at 8 months old and went all the way through Pre-K.  Not only did the program set her up for success for Kindergarten and beyond, but it was a warm and nurturing environment as well.  Our daughter created friendships that she will have forever (and we did too!). We had visited a bunch of preschools/day-cares but when the baby room teacher got on the floor with our daughter during our tour and started playing with her, we knew which one we were choosing.  The facility is also bigger and brighter than any other place we toured.  The teachers, directors and staff all truly care about each child.  We loved the ECEC! Rachel Blum, Past Parent
