About Gan Shelanu
Gan Shelanu is Adath Jeshurun Congregation’s early childhood program for children aged six weeks through Pre-Kindergarten.
The Gan, as it is affectionately called, provides a rich variety of learning experiences to stimulate the cognitive and social development of your child within a Jewish context. We work to instill in our students pride in their heritage, the importance of community and love of giving back. This can be seen from our school’s activities: such as baking and delivering Hanukkah cookies to Adath’s home-bound congregants, singing for senior residents at Knollwood Place and Sholom Home, and planting trees in Israel.
All students at the Gan enjoy music sessions led by a music specialist. Our Preschool and Pre-K students participate in special science and Hebrew curriculum.
Classes are held each weekday during the 9-month school year, from September to May. Depending on the age of your child, you may choose from the following programs: Infant Care, Transitional Toddler Class, Toddler Class, Preschool Class or PreKindergarten Class. Further details of these programs are outlined in our registration form.
When you enroll your child in any of Gan Shelanu’s programs, you become part of our community. By sharing holiday celebrations and watching your child learn Jewish customs and traditions, you and your child will make lifelong friends and become part of the larger Adath community.
