Toddlers (18 months)

 

Our Gan Sinai program for 18-month to 26-month-old children provides fun learning experiences that encourage your young toddler to explore their environment and interact with peers and teachers. Children in the toddler program are introduced to different types of learning experiences based on their individual developmental needs and interests.

 

Our toddler classroom environments are carefully created with developmentally-appropriate learning centers and materials. In the toddler classrooms, you will find blocks, puzzles, art supplies, dramatic play equipment, sensory tables, a library and more.

 

Toddlers have the freedom to choose what activities they are interested in. Teachers guide and support their learning throughout those activities, helping them learn new skills and encouraging them to try new experiences.

 

At Gan Sinai, we believe that the foundation to a lifelong love of learning for a child begins with a nurturing relationship with their teachers. Gan Sinai toddler teachers are trained in responsive caregiving. That means they work to build a trusting relationship with each child, provide individualized care to each child, and develop partnerships with families. All children experience a responsive, sensitive care-giving environment.

 

At Gan Sinai, we understand the importance of regularly assessing each child’s growth and development. That practice allows us to tailor our lessons and activities to the needs of each individual child. Gan Sinai uses Famly (our Early Learning application) to assess each child’s growth and development.

Children must be 18 months old by September 1st to enter our toddler program. Each toddler class has a maximum of eight children with two teachers. Inquire about our toddler program.

 
​2-Year Olds

 

Our Gan Sinai program for two-year-olds provides fun learning experiences that encourage your older toddler to explore their environment and interact with their peers and teachers.

 

Children spend much of the day in our learning centers, both indoors and out. In centers, children choose activities from purposely-planned play experiences. Teachers intentionally create environments and provide appropriate learning materials to allow your child to explore and learn on their own, as well as provide support in learning new skills. In our two-year-old classrooms you will see several different learning centers such as art, science, dramatic play, library, blocks, puzzles and more.

Gan Sinai 3-year-old teachers continue to build on the strong social-emotional foundation that starts in our younger classrooms.

​4-Year Olds (VPK)

Our Gan Sinai 4-year-old program prepares your child for success in school and life. By balancing social-emotional skills and academic preparation, our teachers and classrooms empower children to learn, grow and thrive.

 

Our 4-year-old classrooms are designed for learning with spaces to accommodate large and small groups, individual work, and messy play. Children have the freedom to engage in the activities and centers that interest them most including pretend play, blocks, math and science, art, sensory play and writing.

 

Individual and group activities are designed to provide enrichment in all areas of development, and are based on the teacher’s specific observations of each child’s interests, skills, and current developmental level.

 

Gan Sinai 4-year-old teachers nurture the interests, curiosity and skills of your child. Through intentional, play-based activities and classroom activities that build both social skills and independent learning, our 4-year-old students benefit from individualized educational support on a daily basis.
