Specials at City Gan
Weekly specialty include Sports, Yoga, Music and Movement, Art Class, all led by professional and engaging instructors.
Throughout the year, we have programs to involve the children’s extended family. These include Dads N Donuts, Gardening with Grandparents, Mommy and Me Challah Bake, and Annual Friday Night Family Dinner.
Friday’s at City Gan are very special. Each week, the children make and bake fresh Challah from scratch. Baking teaches the children patience, early math skills, and life skills. The classes have a Shabbat party together teaching the children the concept of including and loving others. The children have a Shabbat party with songs, reading, and blessing the candles, wine (grape juice) and Challah. Each week a child takes home the Shabbat Box which gives his family an opportunity to celebrate Shabbat together in their own unique way, which then gets journaled and is discussed in school the following week.
Good deed notes are filled out every day at drop off and read to the children out loud during the day. This encourages positive behavior, teaches the children that their actions matter, and gives the children a strong sense of self worth and self confidence.
Dad, Mom, a relative, or a friend are invited to come once during the year to do a craft, puppet s show, or tell us about their career! This makes the children feel that where they spend their days is as important to their parents as where go to work daily.
We love exploring our neighborhood! We make sure to say hello to our local mail woman, UPS delivery man, and Mr. Fruit man at the corner of Dunkin Donuts. We love visiting our local firehouse, police station, and enjoy a very educational visit from the Dentist!
