Our mission is to cultivate each child’s natural curiosity to explore the world around them, to support each child as they develop personally, socially, and academically, and to instill in each child a sense of appreciation for the rich role of culture and language in shaping their lives and the lives of those around them.

Gan Yeladim strives to create a loving and nurturing environment that helps to instill a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. Our teachers have a deep knowledge and understanding of children and their unique developmental needs and utilize this knowledge as they plan, implement, and assess meaningful curriculum through providing powerful and authentic learning experiences using in-depth investigation of real world topics worthy of children’s attention and effort. We devotedly nurture a culture of partnership, kindness, and respect between teachers and families through parent participation, communication, and family and community events that enable every child to attain a life-long sense of belonging and love of learning.


Although all children progress through a series of different developmental stages of cognitive development, their rate of development is unique to the specific child. Our teachers value children as individuals and provide classroom activities that are engaging and stimulating for all children respective to their individual development.


We believe that children are born with a natural curiosity about their world. Children learn best when given the opportunity to explore and interact with their environment and play is an integral part of that process. When children engage in individual and group play, they are learning skills that support success in life and are essential to the proper development of the whole child as it encourages competency in problem solving, muscle coordination, motor planning, conflict resolution, emotional regulation, and self-expression.
