Gan Hayeled

Gan Hayeled Early Childhood Center of Congregation B'nai Jacob serves as a support for families, working in partnership with parents to help meet the emotional, social, physical and intellectual needs of every child.  Our families come from all over the Greater New Haven community: Woodbridge, Bethany, Orange, West Haven, East Haven, Branford, Shelton, Derby, Ansonia and New Haven. We would like to welcome you and your child!
Children are helped to deal with their own and other's feelings as well as to become members of the larger community of Gan Hayeled. The environment is caring, warm and responsive. Structure is provided through careful room arrangement, rules and routines that have an order, which is safe and predictable.

Within the daily regular schedule, children are encouraged and helped to make many individual choices.  We believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged in their own work and play. Carefully planned small group and individual activities in art, cooking, music, story telling, movement, math and science are the vehicles for providing such experiences. Materials and projects are thoughtfully selected so as to be appropriate to the developmental levels of the children.  Our indoor space is divided into informal interests areas for block building, science, dramatic play, art and messy projects, cooking, manipulative, and private spaces, active and quiet places. We view the outdoors as an important extension of the indoor experience. We make sure children have a place that provides for physical challenge in many areas: running, climbing, sliding digging, building, riding bikes and dramatic play.
