About Us


What is a PTO?

The PTO is a formal group of parent volunteers working together to enrich the social and educational experience of our children in school. The PTO compliments The Ruth and Edward Taubman Early Childhood Center’s curriculum by providing opportunities for parents, teachers, and students to learn, socialize, communicate, and grow as a community. 

Our Goals

We have three major goals for every year: 

  1. Provide additional programs, equipment, and services to our students: 

    1. The PTO provides additional services and activities for our children to help them develop their religious, social, and academic lives 

  2. Establish a greater connection between ECC families to the school, to each other and to the great B’nai Torah community: 

    1. Allow parents to feel more involved in school, school programs, and their children’s education - Create a sense of community amongst the ECC parents 

  3. Provide additional support to the ECC staff members and teachers: 

    1. Ensure that teachers and the ECC staff have a sense of appreciation from their students and the students’ parents 

    2. Promote and encourage open lines of communication between parents and the ECC teachers and staff members 


How can we reach our goals?

To achieve our goals each year, we need: 

  1. The cooperative work between parents, teachers, and staff. 

  2. To recognize the needs of our students, the teachers, the school, and the staff.

  3. Active involvement of both the parents and the teachers.
