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.
