Welcome to Gan B’nai Shalom Preschool – a preschool where children receive a stimulating, creative, and nurturing learning experience that provides them with the foundation to grow educationally, socially, and spiritually.

Our program provides children of all faiths the opportunity for exploration, self-expression and strong community building. Each child is special and unique. We encourage each child to develop as an individual and as part of the community within a cultural Jewish framework.

Our goal is to make learning exciting through a hands-on-approach. We strive to encourage our children to be creative and independent thinkers, as they increase their self-confidence, enhance their independence, and develop a sense of responsibility.


Gan B’nai Shalom Preschool has three generally age-defined core programs. We maintain a low student/educator ratio so we can pay attention to the unique needs of each child and provide a more intimate learning experience. In addition to the core programs (9am-1pm), we offer extended day enrichment.


Gan B’nai Shalom Preschool is open to the community, with a priority given to Congregation B’nai Shalom members.
