Welcome to Gan HaYeled Preschool!

The Gan HaYeled Preschool at Adas Israel Congregation is a warm and welcoming, NAEYC Accredited Preschool in the heart of Washington, DC. Known for its strong community of students, parents, and faculty, the Gan is the perfect place for children to learn, grow, and have fun! Now offering both Full Day and Part Time programs. 

Our Philosophy

At the Gan, we use a play-based developmental approach. We recognize that all children learn in different ways, at different paces. Along with the fundamental skills taught in our curriculum, we believe enrichment activities and parent involvement are critical ways to extend learning opportunities. Our children are part of a vibrant community of learners.

Ma Hadash - Whats New?

A Note From the Gan Administrative Team

It was such a pleasure to have you in attendance at Back to School Night. Welcoming your children as they visited the classrooms and hearing about their home visits was a beautiful culmination to the week.
Feeling the excitement and emotion that accompanies the start of a school year is simply a precursor to the growth, learning, and exploration that awaits us in this coming year here in the Gan. We look forward to the school year, and thank you in advance for giving us the opportunity to nurture and educate your child.
