About Garderie Foundation School
A place to shine
Congregation Shaar Hashomayim’s preschool provides traditional Jewish programming in three languages, in the context of a loving and safe haven where children can explore, discover, and create.
Our stellar staff is committed to nurturing the whole child, promoting emotional, social, and intellectual growth. Each child is guided to develop:
a strong Jewish identity
a positive sense of self
pride in his/her accomplishments
empathy and respect for others
the ability to solve problems independently
We foster a strong partnership with the parents and enable each family to feel part of the larger synagogue community.
“EDUCATION IS NOT THE FILLING OF A PAIL, BUT THE LIGHTING OF A FIRE".
William Butler Yeats
All year long, we celebrate with families in class and across the school. Kids celebrate their achievements and share them with their families. Events are the perfect time to meet other families and build lifelong relationships. Our events are very entertaining to children but also the whole family.
