Ganon Gil (Hebrew for “Happy Nursery”) was created in 1955 with the idea that while children are learning to socialize and adjust to a group situation they are also learning to relate to Jewish traditions, Hebrew language, ceremonies and holidays which are an integral part of the American Jewish identity.
Ganon Gil has a comprehensive and developmental program designed to help children reach their full potential socially and emotionally and provides them with the educational components necessary for future school success.
Ganon Gil is more than just a preschool, it is a family. 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.
Building strong minds and a sense of self is a goal of our teachers here at Ganon Gil. We offer a wide range of activities both in and out of the classroom to help our kids learn to be independent thinkers.
Ganon Gil’s mission is to provide children with love and a caring atmosphere so that they can learn the social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills that they will need now and in the future.
Come and see why Ganon Gil Preschool is one of Cleveland’s most innovative Jewish preschools and the place “Where love and caring are the building blocks of the future.”
