Gan Yerushalayim is open year-round from 7:00a.m. to 5:30p.m. We offer a 12-month program honoring both the state and Jewish holiday calendars. Children may enroll full time or in a half-day program. We accept children from 2-5 years of age.
I was so amazed how they were able to get my two year old son Spencer to take his nap. I realized that the teachers of this school were all on one team. When Spencer first went to school and had difficulty taking his nap on his own, one of the teachers made themselves available to walk and read to Spencer until he was sleepy enough to go down on his own. They did this until Spencer was able to adjust to nap time. I could not have asked for a more nurturing way to care for my child. Now, If only Spencer could take naps like that at home!
We cannot express the gratification of seeing our children excel both academically, physically and socially at Kamehameha Schools. We give so much credit to the staff and facilities at the Honolulu Community Jewish Preschool, (The Gan). Succeeding to get three children into a private school shows the love, dedication and commitment the staff at the "Gan" has for it's pupils.
It is the first five years of life in which we are given the optimum opportunity to develop our children’s potential. This period of time is precious. We work to provide your child with a safe, loving and stimulating environment that facilitates learning. Our emphasis is three-fold: positive social emotional development, an age appropriate curriculum, rich with hands-on readiness oriented activities, and a solid religious base for our Jewish families as well as an enriching religious experience for our non-Jewish children.
