About the School:

Gan Shelanu is the early childhood program of the Solomon Schechter Day School, the premier Jewish Day School in Greater Boston. The program is designed for children ages 15 months to 4+ years. At Gan Shelanu we believe that children’s work is their play. Our thematic curriculum is play-based, incorporating weekly specialists in music, art, literacy and physical education. Jewish life and Jewish identity are cornerstones of our program. Children learn about Jewish values, Hebrew, holidays and traditions.
