“When we first arrived at Chabad's Gan, we immediately felt at home. Beyond the beautiful design, the Gan is built in a way that will suit various ages, and it’s noticeable that every little detail was thought of. The staff works with love and patience and therefore, I trust the Gan’s staff to take care of my baby, and if we weren't returning back to Israel, Chabad's Gan would undoubtedly be our first choice.”

Elia Levy

“It can be quite stressful to find the right place for your child. The Gan made it easy and our son is having so much fun. He loves his teachers and all the activities he gets to do! We also love that we can follow along his day on the special app where we get updates about food, diapers, nap and we also get very cute pictures! I would 100% recommend The Gan!”

Aurellie Partouche

“I love bringing my little one to mommy and me! Each class is interactive and fun with a combination of crafting, challah braiding, and music time. It’s a joy to be able to bring Judaism into my daughter’s life every week in an engaging and fun way. It’s also been a great way to connect with other families with kids the same age in the neighborhood.”

First smiles, first steps, first words... they all begin with a loving and nurturing environment. The Gan's teachers are always there to provide a warm embrace and help ensure each child's physical, social, and emotional needs are met. Your child will develop at their own pace as we tailor our lessons to their interests and their developmental level.
