The programs of Ganeinu arise from a common desire for excellence in meeting the needs of children and their families.  Our philosophy is one of nurturing, growth and development, relationships and understanding - all with the goal of establishing a love for learning, a fascination with holidays and life cycle events, and a passion for approaching the world in a Jewish way.

Children are treasured for their uniqueness and individuality, and are encouraged in self-expression.

The basic philosophy behind our curriculum is that children learn best by doing. The program activities are therefore designed to help children learn more about the world, their heritage and their values through hands-on activities and active involvement.

While Ganeinu operates classrooms which are individualized in their goals and objectives, each classroom forms its specific aims within the context of these principles.

 We believe that …

  • the home is the most important factor in a child's development. We will always strive to support and complement the family in order to promote healthy development of children and parents.
  • loving, trusting, and respecting each child makes that child capable of loving, trusting and respecting others.
  • each child should be guided and encouraged to have a positive self-image.
  • children need a nurturing, safe and happy environment which promotes their natural curiosity and desire to learn.
  • play is the work of children and through it children explore the world around them by using their senses.
  • children deserve to have teachers whose values enable them to be excellent role models.

At Ganeinu emphasis is placed on the individual child and on encouraging each child's innate inquisitiveness and thirst for knowledge. Small classes and low student-teacher ratios ensure that each child receives individual and caring attention.
