At Gan Keshet ELC, you will find an independent. child-centered, Torah-based, Center
with strong home-school and Israel connections. We strive to nurture and stimulate,
setting the stage for a love of learning, questioning and discovery. We believe
that by providing a safe, nurturing, Torah-based environment, children can create
meaningful relationships with both other children and with adults - a skill they
will need throughout their lives. By providing a stimulating, fun atmosphere, infused
with Jewish values, children will develop the confidence that will allow them to
question and spark innovation and creativity.
Our center-based curriculum allows for hands-on learning, where children learn through play. The environment we provide fosters imaginative and creative play, introducing and reinforcing the goals and concepts of the Maryland State early childhood curriculum. We believe the early years are crucial to a child's overall learning and development. We are committed to working with families to ensure that these formative years are successful and happy.
For specifics of our philosphy, our curriculum, and what sets up apart from other options for your young child, please visit our Curriculum page.
We follow the Maryland State standards for each age group, insuring use of developmentally appropriate practice at all levels. Gan Keshet ELC is licensed by the State of Maryland and fully insured.
