Mission Statement

 

Gan Henel Early Learning Center is an warm & loving modern orthodox Preschool in Tenafly-Englewood whose mission is to provide a nurturing environment where children can grow and develop emotionally, cognitively and physically.

Based on the knowledge that the formative years of early childhood are vitally important, each child is viewed as a seed that we nurture with the utmost care. Our carefully crafted program is designed to provide children with the early foundation and framework necessary for the transition to elementary school and beyond. Children learn to develop the literacy, numeracy, reasoning, and decision making skills that form a foundation for school readiness. In addition, children learn socialization skills, build self-confidence and develop the preliminary skills to explore and experience their world independently.

Jewish values and traditions are woven naturally through all of our disciplines so that they become both a meaningful and treasured part of each child’s experience. Some examples are: respect for others, kindness, being a constructive member of a community and tzdedaka.

Our educational approach is guided by our recognition and respect for the unique qualities of each child. We recognize that each child has his or her unique needs, interests and passions. Our children are viewed as collaborators: they are competent, curious, inquisitive, unique, and creative. Each child who enters the school becomes a treasured member of our Gan Henel Early Learning Center family
