Gan Henel Early Learning Center serves families in the Bergen county area of New Jersey and beyond. Our classes begin at ages 6 weeks – 6 years. We offer a full academic curriculum in a warm and nurturing setting. Our beautiful preschool is located on the border of Tenafly-Englewood and our classrooms are bright, modern and equipped with state-of-the-art equipment carefully chosen to inspire our students’ imagination and encourage their budding independence.
At Gan Henel, we strive to nurture each child’s innate sense of wonder and curiosity. We firmly believe that the cornerstone for all cognitive learning is a nurtured sense of self worth, achieved by celebrating each child’s individual creative expressions and their unique strengths. All of our teachers are certified educators who embody a unique blend of personal and professional warmth.
Our preschool classrooms are full of opportunities for learning, socialization and growth. Judaic and academic themes are mutually reinforcing, and cover all the various domains that complete an early childhood education: Early Literacy, pre-Mathematics, Social Sciences, Science and Art.
At Gan Henel, Jewish learning is not simply a subject. The warmth, meanings and practices of Judaism are an integral part of each day. Jewish songs, holidays and traditions are taught in meaningful and joyous ways, inspiring a deep-rooted Jewish connection in each of our students.
Our approach to integrated education is informed by both Jewish wisdom and the best of progressive educational practice, primarily the Reggio Emilia approach. These methods guide and inspire us to maintain a high level of respect for each individual child, for the pursuit of knowledge and for the world around us. We view each child as a precious gift entrusted into our care and this belief translates into every day and each encounter at Gan Henel.
We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions that you might have.
