Gan Elohim Early Learning Center

Since 1972, we have engaged children in learning, fostered joy in Jewish values, and built a community in which relationships last a lifetime.

Children engage in a mix of educational activities, art, music, hands-on projects, and plenty of indoor and outdoor play. Our Jewish teachings are core to our relationship-based curriculum, instilling the universal values of kindness, respect, and community.

From learning programs to social events to community service experiences, TBE Youth programs enable our children to engage with Jewish culture, traditions, and teachings in an age-appropriate way.
