Teaching is a mission, a valued and time-honored Jewish tradition. The adults in our school – the teachers, administrators, substitutes, and volunteers – recognize that they are role models and that being around impressionable children is a privilege and responsibility.
While each of our teachers has a unique talent box, they share their view of children as innately competent beings, able to master self-regulation and to build their own knowledge. They create classroom communities where each child’s voice is honored.
In Hebrew, the term for scholar is “Talmid Chacham” – a wise student! We are committed to strengthening and enriching our knowledge of young children by listening carefully to them and by continuing our own education.
The teacher-to-child ratio at Gan Yeladim Preschool is lower than state requirements and equal to the highest level of preschool accreditation nationwide.
