Our curriculum covers Judaic as well as academic topics. 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 teachers prepare lesson plans that include age appropriate activities that encourage and support children’s language, pre-literacy and pre-math skills in addition to cultural awareness and interest in nature and science. Our goal is to encourage a love for learning that will continue way beyond their education at The Chabad City Gan!
In order to engage your child and make learning exciting, we choose a theme that encompasses the entire classroom. We cover Jewish themes such as Jewish Holidays or Charity as well as secular themes such as “Community Helpers” or “All About Me”.
In addition, there are weekly alphabet themes. Your child is gaining a lot more than just a basic understanding of the theme. Whether it is seasonal or general, there is always a discovery area for your child to really explore items and activities related to the theme. During circle time we sing songs, discuss thought provoking questions and learn Hebrew conversational words. There are science and math activities that accompany. If appropriate the dramatic play area will be transformed into something new.
