The Gan Shalom Cooperative Preschool is an early childhood education facility for children aged 24 months through 4 years old.

Gan Shalom believes that children experience learning through meaningful play. Our curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs, interests and developmental  
stages of each child.  We create an atmosphere in which learning experiences will occur and children take an active part in the learning process.

It is our desire to provide a warm, loving Jewish environment where each child feels secure and happy, and where learning is meaningful and fun.

While each Gan Shalom class has a Lead Teacher, parents and caregivers play an active role in our school as classroom aides on a rotating basis.  They are also actively involved in the governance of the School.

Currently, we offer three classes:

  • Tzivonim (Tulips): A two year old class which meets two mornings a week (Tuesday • Thursday) from 9 am–12 pm
  • Shoshanim (Roses): A two year old class which meets three mornings a week (Monday • Wednesday • Friday) from 9 am–12 pm
  • Sachlavim (Orchids): A three year old class which meets five mornings a week (Monday – Friday) from 9 am–1 pm.  Children can attend two, three, or five mornings.

Gan Shalom is a Jewish preschool.  However, enrollment is open to both Jewish and non-Jewish students. Learn more, including information about admissions, at www.dcganshalom.org.
