Admissions and Programs

SEED Playground Play

SEED ECS at Temple Beth Am is a year-round program with a new school year beginning each September. Registration opens for the following school year in two phases. First, in late January, current families may register their children who currently attend the school and any siblings they wish to enroll. Alumni families may also enroll at the end of this initial phase. Then in the second week of February, new families may enroll for the program. Rolling admissions are done at other times of the year pending availability in the program. Families may sign up for a spot on the wait list if there is not availability in the program of their choice. Families must tour the program before registering their children.

For questions about the program or to set up a time for a tour, please contact Administrative Associate Jamie Wecker at SEED@templebetham.org.
