The Gan Garrett Jewish Preschool was opened in Vancouver, Washington to serve the needs of the growing Jewish population. The Gan, is Hebrew for "garden". We have created an emotionally-safe learning environment where our children feel empowered to explore ideas, skills and an understanding of self; where they can blossom, flourish and grow to make the world around them a more beautiful place.
Our mission is shaped by:
• Jewish values
• The Reggio Emilia Educational Approach
• An appreciation and respect for the child’s natural stages of development
• The belief that children build knowledge through personal experiences
• The recognition that the years of early childhood possess within them the capacity for life-long habits, behaviors and attitudes
• The belief that each child possesses a unique inner voice that needs to be heard and encouraged by both the child and by those around him.
We work collaboratively - our children, their families, and our teachers - towards meeting this mission. For preschoolers, ages 2 - 5. Call us to talk about making this the place where your child will grow, thrive, learn and love.
