The Preschool is an important part of Temple Beth Elohim's commitment to lifelong learning and is run by the Director, under the guidance of the Temple's Executive Director, Jewish Living.  Support for the Director comes from the Preschool Committee.  The Committee assists the Director in the school's daily operations, as well as manages the school's social events, fundraising and social action programs and support of a caring community.  The Director is responsible for the curriculum of the Preschool, personnel, licensing, enrollment, management of the classrooms and overall program planning for the school year.


Enrollment at Gan Elohim is open to children from approximately 15 months to 5 years of age.  We admit children of all faiths and ethnic groups. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status or national origin.
