The Stoler Early Learning Center is located at the Rosenbloom Owings Mills JCC in Greater Baltimore. We serve almost 200 children from the ages of 10 weeks through kindergarten. It is our belief that each child is unique, and our educators strive to address their strengths, needs, and interests in a comprehensive, child-centered approach in which they focus on using exploration and discovery as a vehicle for children to learn by providing open ended-provocations. Research shows that the best way to help children succeed long term is to teach them to be creative, resilient, and confident thinkers by providing them with multiple opportunities to demonstrate their learning through play. Our school is working towards living and breathing a constructivist inspired philosophy and embracing a spirit of innovation and experimentation in order to create a caring community of learners in which educators and students can grow alongside one another physically, emotionally, and intellectually.
