Earlier this month, teachers from the Hershorin Schiff Community Day School were chosen to present during the Florida Kindergarten Council Annual Convention – which was attended by more than 200 educators representing 61 schools – in Orlando. Kindergarten teacher Shonna Brady and Early Childhood Learning Center teacher Kate Iorli presented “Learning in Every Nook and Cranny, Including Outside!” which showcases the Reggio-inspired and project-based learning environment at Community Day School. The 50 educators who attended learned about the research supporting bringing nature inside the school walls while also taking children outside. Brady and Iorli also shared innovative ideas and developmentally appropriate environments that provide opportunities for children to explore, design, and invent.
The mission of the Hershorin Schiff Community Day School, which serves students in preschool through eighth grade, is to prepare students of all faiths to impact the world through academic excellence, global citizenship, and compassionate action. Community Day offers a rigorous, project-based academic program in a diverse and vibrant learning environment rooted in the Jewish values of honesty, integrity, mutual trust and respect.
