As a preschool that draws its inspiration from the renowned infant and childcare centers of Reggio Emilia, Italy, our progressive philosophy puts the children at the center of their preschool experience. Recognized as leaders in Early Childhood Education, the schools of Reggio Emilia have been emulated by preschools, daycares and childcare centers worldwide for over 25 years. Newsweek magazine recognized this unique way of educating infants, toddlers and preschoolers in its 1991 issue on the “best top ten schools in the world”.
At Seeds of Wonder, we embrace project based learning and an inclusive preschool learning environment, which allows the children to engage in an emergent curriculum, and is targeted to provide for each child’s individual needs. We partner with local agencies to provide differentiation and accommodations whenever possible to children with special rights and learning differences, including autism, language processing delays, sensory processing disorder, etc.
Seeds of Wonder Journey School provides a warm, cozy, joyful and nurturing preschool experience in a Jewish environment where young children grow and learn in a loving community. Teachers engage children’s minds and senses through exploration of new ideas in math, science, literacy and social studies. Our child-centered philosophy and intentionally smaller class sizes set us apart from the other preschools, daycares and childcare centers in the Roswell area!
Our students prepare for more than Kindergarten, they are preparing for life! Educational research has proven that strong communication and collaboration skills are crucial for success in school and in the workplace, and these skills are developed during the early childhood years. We understand that children acquire skills and abilities along individual timetables, and we recognize that the role of the preschool teacher is to carefully craft opportunities for discovery that allow each child to reach his/her full potential.
We commit to enriching and educating children through meaningful learning experiences that foster the development of the whole child across all domains. Because of our dual focus on strong pre-academics and social and emotional skills such as self-advocacy, negotiation and collaboration, children who graduate from SOWJS will be well-prepared for the next step along their journeys.
Located in Roswell's historic district, SOWJS is able to offer walking field trips to places such as Woodstock Park, the Roswell Fire Museum, and downtown shops and galleries. We are excited to be an integral part of the Roswell downtown community!
Housed at Temple Kehillat Chaim, we offer an enriched, hands-on preschool experience steeped in Jewish tradition, including Shabbat and holiday celebrations, and learning about the world through Jewish values and Mitzvot (good deeds, literally commandments), such as giving Tzedakah (charity, literally justice), Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), G'milut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness), Ba'al Tashchit (taking care of our environment), and Hachnasat Orchim (welcoming guests).
Children love to explore our newly redesigned outdoor classroom!
