The best children's books that will encourage your child to be kind to others Read these books about kindness, and you'll be priming your child's brain to grow into a kind, compassionate soul. We all know the world could use more of those!

This Classroom Job in My Kid’s Pre-K Made Me a Jewish Day School Believer

I love this and I love that calling a sick friend with the children at circle time is an important part of our Gan Israel preschool day. I remember one parent telling me that her daughter begged to stay home from preschool one day. why her mom asked? The child said because she never gets sick so her friends and teachers don't call her at circle time and she wanted to get a phone call! Compassion and caring, teaching our children, even our preschoolers, that this is something we can all practice 😃

This Classroom Job in My Kid’s Pre-K Made Me a Jewish Day School Believer For some parents, sending their children to Jewish day school is a given. Perhaps they went to day school and want that same experience for their kids, or perhaps they didn’t and wish they had. Thi…


Babies and Tots starts tomorrow. Parents and children age 0-3. 9:30am in the main building. Play, chat, explore. Hope to see you there. Questions email [email protected]

Gan Israel Preschool

One of the unique and wonderful aspects of Gan Israel Preschool is our family events (Image from Tu B’shvat Family Tree Program). Gan Israel Preschool paves the way for strong lifelong friendships. I recently saw two alumni families sitting together at a Veterans Day celebration at their local elementary school. The families met at the Gan during our family events and shared the experience of being Jewish military families. This past summer a group of alumni, now in high school, joined together to help one of their former classmates complete a community service project for her Girl Scout Gold Award. Their connection to each other and the Gan remains strong. With each year we continue this tradition of fostering strong relationships both inside and outside our school walls, a special feeling that comes from being part of the Gan!
