Petaluma's Inclusive Center for Jewish Life

Gan Israel Preschool

The Board of Directors of B'nai Israel Jewish Center has made the difficult decision to not open the Gan Israel Preschool for the 2021 Spring session. We have been closely following the advice of our state and county public health authorities and the time has come to take this step. We look forward to reopening when it is safe to do so.

About Gan Israel Preschool

Gan Israel Preschool emphasizes an emergent curriculum where the focus is on process more than product; on the children's interests more than the teacher's; on what happens rather than what is planned to happen.

By helping children see the lessons and learning in the world around them and among themselves, the teachers create lifelong, independent learners and foster creativity and problem solving. We present an activity-oriented program which includes Jewish teachings and traditions and fosters respect and interdependence among children.
