Welcome to The Gan Family!​

The Gan is a warm, safe and loving preschool that engages each child on their journey to develop a passion for learning, share the joys of our heritage, and shape a lifelong, positive identity rooted proudly in their Judaism.​​

From the mailbox...

“The Gan has been everything we wanted, and a whole lot more of what we didn’t know we needed, in a preschool!

It has provided a lovely and peaceful environment for our 1 year old son, who has thrived since he started attending. Every day, he is so excited to arrive and even expresses interest to stay longer during pickup!

The director is incredibly kind, organized and attentive, and ensures that the school follows the strictest guidelines in regard to our child’s health and well-being.

Meal and nap/sleep times at home  improved instantaneously since his attendance here. Our son enjoys several art and tactile experiences that he is introduced to in a progressive and intentional way.

Judaism is woven throughout the days/weeks in an accessible manner, giving us a platform to introduce our faith to him in a way he can connect with. The Gan is so much more than a school and we couldn’t feel happier or more blessed to be a part of the community it fosters so effectively.”
