Welcome to the Herman and Miriam Tauber Academy

Tauber Academy

Our Tauber Academy is a nationally accredited school nurturing the minds of children 3 months old through 1st grade.  The Tauber Academy is deeply rooted in our long standing commitment to helping children flourish in a Jewish environment that provides opportunities for growth. Our teachers and staff are dedicated to engaging your children in an early education experience that promotes love, compassion,and exploration as its primary foundation. Our philosophy is simple; teach children the way they want to learn. We believe that each child learns and processes information differently, which is why we meet each child where they are, and allow them to guide our approach. Through experience, we know that focusing on each child encourages and motivates them to achieve success and gain self-confidence as they develop the building blocks for their future. Our program is filled with different opportunities to learn new ideas and concepts. ​Core Knowledge Curriculum is a fun, and age appropriate learning tool that benefits the learning style of each child. At Tauber Academy, we are highly applauded and recognized for our strong student to teacher ratio. Children flourish in our 28,000-sq. ft. building with sixteen classrooms, a multi-purpose social room, four learning center classrooms, youth yoga center, computer center, youth activity area, library and playgrounds.
At The Tauber Academy, our philosophy is the belief that each
child is a unique individual and should be taught according to
his or her needs and at their own pace. By focusing on each child
this way, we help them reach their personal best. Our children
leave Tauber feeling successful, well rounded and confident.

We believe personal attention and “Catching our students being
good”, brings out the best in each child at every level. The teachers
have daily “small group” sessions where each and every child gets
special learning time with a two to one ratio, with their teacher!

Our mission is to provide academic excellence through an advanced approach that addresses the whole student. Our program includes the finest developmental and academic curriculum, appropriate for the age of the child, as defined by the Core Knowledge Curriculum.

Along with all of the enriching activities we include in our curriculum, I am pleased to announce the addition of our Early Childhood Media Center, located on the second floor of our campus. The new Media Center incorporates both printed and digital resources. Filled with award winning books and interactive story boards, we have created an atmosphere which encourages creativity and exploration. Students can discover, investigate, express themselves, or let their imaginations take flight, in a cozy and bright environment designed for our young scholars.

During their scheduled class time, the children will learn how to use the many resources available to “Discover the World” and themselves!
 
FACULTY
Teachers are encouraged to use a wide variety of teaching strategies, groupings, and materials to help children learn the knowledge and skills specified in the Preschool Sequence. Core Knowledge Preschool Professional Development provides teachers with many options for teaching each area of the Preschool Sequence, including planning activities for large and small group instruction, incorporating learning into center play, and so on. It is important not to confuse or equate the precision and specificity of the knowledge and skills of the Preschool Sequence with ineffective teaching methods, such as rote learning and isolated drill or the copious use of ditto sheets.

All faculty members have completed all childcare training required by the state of Florida Department of Children and Families 80% of the faculty have bachelor's degrees in education.
