The application process begins in the winter prior to the school year, with priority given to Adas Israel members. However, we invite you to visit us at anytime.  If you are looking for summer activities, we also offer our “Sweet Summertime” camp. We welcome all questions about our programs.

Early Bird

Register Here 8:00am - 8:50am (Daily)
Early Bird offers early drop-off for Onah students whose programs open at 8:50am. Drop off in the Playroom upstairs (room 218) for $13/day or sign up for the year. Please register for this add-on ahead to reserve a spot. Email Abby Koplow  with questions or to register for a drop-in.

Lunch Bunch

Register Here 12:00pm - 2:50pm (Daily)
Lunch Bunch offers late pick-up for Onah students whose programs end at 11:50am. Pick up in room 219 for $30/day or sign up for the year. Space is limited in this popular program, so make sure you register ahead. Email Abby Koplow  with questions or to register for a drop-in.

Lunch Bunch is a wonderful opportunity for your child to eat in school and enjoy special enrichment activities with a group of friends. There is no nap time during Lunch Bunch, so we suggest trying it out once before registering long-term. Depending on the interest of the children themes will vary and change throughout the year. This past year’s rotating themes were: messy art, cooking, sports, nature and science. You may either send your child with a lunch (no meat or nuts, please!), or sign up for monthly school lunches. Please register for this add-on ahead to reserve a spot. Email Abby Koplow with questions or to register for a drop-in. Children who receive support should contact Stephanie Slater before registering. 

School Lunch

Register Here
Lunch registration is by the month. The registration deadline is the 23rd of the month before (except September lunch - registration deadline is September 3, 3pm.) No refunds are available for the lunch program. 

Menus available here (hint: view "AGENDA" instead of week to see more details).  

Summer Camp

Register Here
Summertime at Adas Israel’s Gan HaYeled is about making friends, actively learning, and participating in Jewish traditions. Students enjoy the opportunity to spend more time with the teachers and friends they have grown to love. Camp runs from mid-June through early-August, and many Gan teachers staff the classes.

A camp day is similar to a school day at the Gan. Mornings begin with playtime in classrooms, followed by water play and other outdoor fun. Campers create unique art projects, and enjoy field trips to places like the Puppet Company at Glen Echo, the National Building Museum, farms, etc. All children eat lunch at camp, often enjoying picnics in the shade.

Weekly Challah 

During the school year, the GPA coordinates weekly challah for your Shabbat table. Order Challah through the Gan-- your child can help “make” Shabbat and make sure your Shabbat table is “set.” The kids will feel so proud! Place just one order to get fresh Challah weekly on Friday delivered right to your child's tote bag.
Register here or contact Abby Koplow with questions.
