“If we give our children sound self-love, they will be able to deal with whatever life puts before them.”

— Bell Hooks

Our Program at TLCC

Since 1988, Tree of Life Children's Center at Temple Beth Israel (formerly Temple Beth Israel Preschool) has been serving families with children 2 years to 5 years of age from cities throughout the Inland Valley. TBI Preschool is licensed by the California Department of Social Services, affiliated with the Bureau of Jewish Education.

Tree of Life Children's Center in Pomona, California is open to the community and conveniently serves Claremont, Pomona, Upland, La Verne, and surrounding communities. We welcome all families of all backgrounds and faiths, with enrollment preference given to current students, siblings, and members of the Temple Beth Israel congregation.

Our preschool provides a fun-filled, play-based learning environment designed to promote social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth. We also maintain a low teacher-child ratio, which fosters a high-quality nurturing atmosphere. Children of all ages are actively engaged and learning in a creative and developmentally appropriate way.

We invite you to visit our early childhood program. At Tree of Life Children's Center you will notice:

  • A child-centered, play-based program that focuses on the development of the whole child.
  • A safe and stimulating environment where children can actively participate, make choices, and develop skills that promote their growth and development.
  • Integration of secular and Judaic content in the daily curriculum, active involvement in Jewish holidays and traditions and regular participation by our Rabbi and Cantor with our young children.
  • A preschool program where children are engaged in learning activities both indoors and outside.
  • Caring, responsive teachers who strive to promote individual development in a social setting.
  • A Pre-K class with an age-appropriate emphasis on pre-literacy, pre-math and kindergarten readiness skills. A print-rich environment and meaningful group times.
  • Open, daily communication among parents, teachers and director.
  • The sound of laughter, discussion and music throughout the day as our young children thrive at Tree of Life Children's Center at Temple Beth Israel.
