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 provides experiential, hands-on learning allowing students to be partners in their own education in both the Hebrew language and Jewish culture.

"The teachers at Gan Gani instill so much confidence in my child. Each day she comes home wanting to show me all of the new things she learned in school. The artwork and projects she makes is so meaningful, I am having trouble getting rid of any of it!"

-S. Steele


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.
