CURRICULUM & PLANNING
Each staff member takes the time to not only get to know the children they teach but also the student's parents and siblings. The bonds that are created in the classroom, the hallways and the social functions at Ganon Gil allow the families to all feel connected and give the sense of a community of Jewish tradition.
The curriculum is research based and well diverse it encompasses language arts, phonemic awareness, music, gross motor, art appreciation, science, fine motor and more.
We pride ourselves on open communication. We feel that it is extremely important to be in close contact with parents in regard to your child's day. There are a variety of ways that we communicate with parents:
Because preschool children learn by doing, activities will focus on "experiential learning." For example, rather than talking to a group of children about the concept of measurement ... we might bake a cake! For young children, meaningful and long-lasting learning requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work. This is best accomplished through purposeful play facilitated by highly intentional teaching practices.
