Gan Gani  is a Hebrew immersion preschool program in which children engage in constructiveness curriculum promoting development of gross and fine motor skills through manipulative play. Our experiential, hands-on programming allows our students to be partners in their own learning process. Through pretend play, singing songs, integrating with one another, and creating art projects, as well as through many other activities, students are immersed in both Hebrew language and Jewish culture. The Gan Gani preschool is a year-round program including summer camp. We offer flexible days and hours.

This program prepares students for a smooth, stress-free transition to becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah using even more informal education, project-based and experiential learning, a cultural connection to Israel and Judaism, and of course, a special focus on conversational Hebrew.

Gam Ani B’Gan Gani (I am also at Gan Gani) Thursdays 9:30-11:00 ( six session per round) formed a partnership to provide parents of young children the opportunity to facilitate friendships, build community and explore Jewish life. This program offers Hebrew immersion for both the adult and the child. We offer age-appropriate activities in Hebrew which aims to stimulate children while helping to improve attention span and listening skills and raise the level of curiosity.
Activities include:
◦ Music & Movement
◦ Arts & Crafts
◦ Story Time
◦ Free Play
◦ Sensory Play
◦ Challah baking
All activities are intertwined. We combine them all into one class that remains consistent with how children learn best. This class gives children the opportunity to investigate materials with no preconceived knowledge, while helping them develop and refine their cognitive, social and emotional, physical, creative and linguistic skill sets.
