Educating the Whole Child: Coffee and Conversation


Educating the Whole Child: Coffee and Conversation

February 15, 2024
8300 - 9:30 AM | The Teen Center at the Bender JCC

A conversation between Alex Band (Director, Bender Early Childhood Center) and Susan Gold (Founder and Head of School, Feynman School) moderated by Josh Bender (CEO, Bender JCC).

The Bender JCC is fortunate to have two phenomenal schools under one roof. The Bender Early Childhood Center (Bender ECC) is a Reggio inspired school for children 12-months to 5-years-old. In the fall of 2023, the Bender JCC welcomed Feynman School – an independent co-educational school for academically gifted children pre-K to 8th grade – as a strategic, community partner and they have made the Bender JCC their home.

Join us for a dynamic conversation about holistic education with two seasoned and well-respected educators. Although two distinct and unique educational programs, the Bender ECC and Feynman School both focus on educating the whole child and providing an environment where each child can grow and learn academically, socially, and emotionally in a nurturing and supportive environment. Learn about their approach to education and explore questions and important topics related to teaching and learning.

Open to the community. Current and prospective parents encouraged to attend. Tours available after the program by request
