Strong Foundations Through Holistic Learning
Vermont State Licensed
The starting point of all growth in life is connection. From the moment a child is born, the connection to family and community is key to their development. These relationships form a base for the child to build upon as they grow.
Our classroom community creates a sense of warmth and family. Because every parent who chooses Tamim is family, we aim to be there for all of our family’s needs inside and outside of school.
We believe that every single child is born to make a unique contribution to the world. As educators, we owe it to the world to ensure our students realize their great potential.
School Day : 9:00 a.m – 4:00 p.m

The crossroads of our curriculum brings us to a multidiscipline approach to science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). By integrating these areas, children are able to explore their creative side, while simultaneously putting their process at the forefront of their self-expression. Problem solving, ingenuity and investigation propel children into a learning experience that meets them at their level and challenges them to the next.
Our farm program focuses on inspiring a deep connection to the land and animals. By engaging children in farm activities we build their confidence, independence, joy, and appreciation of the seasons. Activities include supervised farm work, gardening and creative projects. This program takes place weekly, weather permitting, at the New Village Farm in Shelburne.
SKIING (January – March):
Once a week we hit the slopes for fresh air and fresh powder. Children will receive a lesson based on their skill level and have time to practice their new-found skills. We provide the transportation and equipment–if you need it, you’re more than welcome to supply your own.
The Tamim meal program will help children develop healthy dietary habits. Our diverse menus introduce students to nutritional elements, new foods and traditional Jewish dishes. Children will have the opportunity to be involved in the meal process – including gardening, cooking and meal planning.
