Gan Aviv offers a variety of educational and fun programs including High Reach Learning, Chalav u'Dvash, and Hebrew by Movement. Our Morahs develop each of these programs and use them in their daily curriculum.
We at Gan Aviv believe that children need to learn and explore our religion at a young age and develop a Jewish identity. We do so thru song and play, Davening every morning and having Shabbat parties every Friday. We celebrate every holiday and teach the children the blessings, songs and the "minhagim".
Children naturally love and enjoy music. Starting with our 2's class, all our children have a weekly 30 minute music class. In addition, children in classes ages 3 1/2 and up also have weekly structured physical activity. This age appropriate physical education is provided by Stretch-n-Grow.
Our Pre-K classes do Hand Writing Without Tears program, Get Ready For School!
We believe in family participation and have many family events.

Chalav u'Dvash - About the program
Chalav u’Dvash is a new, innovative Hebrew language instruction program
from the Jewish Agency for Israel, bringing everyday Hebrew to children everywhere.
The program was designed for children ages three to six and includes a broad range
of developmentally appropriate activities and interactive teaching aids.
High Reach Learning: Philosophy & Approach
HighReach Learning believes that children learn best through actively engaging with people and things in their environment. Children are involved in hands-on experiences, real-life adventures, and assisted discovery as they explore concepts through play. The HighReach Learning curricular approach is based on:
Sound early childhood research and theory
Emergent curriculum development
Project-focused play investigations
Intentional planning and teaching strategies
Involving families, culture, and community
