Grades: PK - K | 9 students
Gan Israel Preschool & Day School, accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education, offers a dual curriculum program for children Age 2 through Kindergarten.
We believe these early years are the most important in a child's education, both secular and Jewish.
Our highly qualified staff create a preschool experience filled with learning and exploration as they teach children through song, dance, dramatic play and art.
Children also enjoy free play indoors and outdoors on our beautiful playground each day and go on community field trips throughout the year.
Reading readiness activities are emphasized to prepare the children for Kindergarten.
The Kindergarten through 1st Grade program features a well rounded General and Jewish Studies Curriculum, covering Language Arts, Math Skills, Science, Social Studies, Jewish Holidays & Concepts, Hebrew, Parsha and Prayer.
We are proud to be using the "Open Court" system in our school, the most up-to-date classroom equipment available, and our new computer lab.
