About Us

he Gan Shalom Cooperative Preschool is an early childhood educational facility for children aged 24 months through 4 years old. The philosophy of Gan Shalom Cooperative Preschool is that children experience learning through meaningful play. The curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs, interests and developmental stages of each child and to 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.  

Gan Shalom Cooperative Preschool believes that children’s first teachers are their parents or guardians. 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 Gan Shalom Cooperative Preschool. Communication between home and school is a core value.
