Gan Gani • גן גני
A vibrant, immersive year-round Hebrew preschool program in Chicago
Chicago's Best Kept Little Secret
Established in 1989, our rich and inclusive, year-round pre-school program has incredible, Israeli teachers who provide experiential, hands-on learning allowing students to be partners in their own education in both the Hebrew language and Jewish culture.
“I am so happy that I found Moadon Kol Chadash. As an Israeli-American, it is important to teach my children to speak Hebrew and to love Israel as I do. I was scared to have all of this responsibility on my shoulders without help, since my family lives in another state. Moadon provides me with that Israeli community I was looking for! It reminds me of my Jewish sleep away camp. I know my child is learning so much and is loved by his teachers. I am so grateful that I have this community to help raise my children in a Hebrew-speaking, Israel loving atmosphere. It is a home away from home .”

About Gan Gani
Gan Gani, "my preschool," is a year-round Hebrew immersion preschool program in which children engage in constructive curriculum in a play based setting. Our experiential, hands-on programming allows our students to be partners in their own learning process, developing language, social, gross and fine motor skills. Through imaginative play, music, art, science, and thematic learning and activities, students are immersed in both the Hebrew language and Jewish culture.
Gan Gani is offered year-round, five days per week, with a traditional school year calendar, with half and full-day options. We also offer summer, winter and spring camps, Passover camp and more opportunities to help provide full time day care for children. The typical school day starts at 9am, with a 12:30pm or 4pm pickup time. We also offer early drop-off and late pickup options.
Gan Gani is open to children ages 9 months to 6 years of age.
Gan Gani is a member of the Community Foundation for Jewish Education and admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
