An engaging, vibrant, and inclusive synagogue
The Infant & Toddler Program is a full-day, year-round child care program open from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Children from 3 to 24 months are welcome into the program. All classrooms are staffed on a 3:1 ratio with professional, loving caregivers. Our program offers activities such as music, circle time, arts and crafts, playground fun and relaxing strolls in our buggies and strollers. Our environment is exceptionally nurturing and the care we provide enriches the lives of all our families. The staff provides a degree of child care unparalleled in Baltimore’s Jewish community.
The Mission of the Infant & Toddler Program is to provide excellent care for children based on the most current scientific brain research and Maryland State Department of Education guidelines. The Infant & Toddler Center is a place to learn about Jewish Values, to nurture development, and to build strong relationships with the Beth El Congregation.
