Gan Shalom offers a warm, creative, Jewish environment, where children are exposed to the world of discovery, exploration and learning.
At Gan Shalom, your child is special. Our teachers care for and are sensitive to your child’s needs. They are experienced with preschoolers, and are patient, loving and nurturing.
Gan Shalom offers a unique blend of learning experiences. One of our most basic concerns is to help children develop social skills; to relate to each other in a friendly manner of communication and cooperation.
Gan Shalom offers a play-based curriculum, and social-emotional, motor and self-help skills are incorporated into all of our themes to give the children the opportunity to develop these crucial skills. We offer a language-rich environment that is conducive to learning and the children are invited to explore and learn in a way that is relevant to them. Each child is encouraged to proceed at their own pace, so learning is enjoyable too!
We use a hands-on technique when exploring every topic, as children learn best when they can do, touch, taste, manipulate, build, and create everything that they are learning. With every theme that we learn about, we make sure to include some science, math, language, building, sensory, fine motor, gross motor, and drama activities, thus encouraging all children to learn using their particular learning styles. We also encourage the children to learn independently and become responsible young people. Gan Shalom provides excitement to our program by doing new things every day, while providing a routine that the children are familiar with so that they can feel comfortable in their environment.
We look forward to having you join our Gan Shalom family!
