Gan Gabi is a Long Day, fully licensed Early Learning Centre, located in the beautiful suburb of Bentleigh East. Our specially crafted curriculum weaves together the best qualities of our Jewish heritage and modern education techniques. We offer quality childcare in a safe environment, where our devoted staff lovingly tend to the children in their care.
The Centre is named after Rabbi Gavriel Noach and Rebbetzen Rivkah Holtzberg the selfless Chabad Emissaries in Mumbai India. The couple were the epitome of goodness and their memory serves as an inspiration to all their brethren around the world.
Gan Gabi opened in 2008 with 3 children. Today we have a capacity of 74 children, aged 6 months to 5 years, and offer a 4-year-old funded kindergarten program. We place great emphasis on instilling Jewish pride, practices and traditions in the children, all while providing a holistic high-quality Secular Program, setting them up for success.
WE SEEK TO IGNITE A SPARK IN EACH CHILD TO LAY CLAIM TO THEIR JEWISH HERITAGE AND NURTURE A LIFETIME PASSION FOR LEARNING.

Gan Gabi is located in the heart of East Bentleigh, where we provide a nurturing environment and a heimish atmosphere that is fostered through community events which include celebrating Chagim as a centre.
Your child's individual development is important to us, which is why we provide extracurricular activities through our special events calendar.
Our large campus boasts two large outdoor yards, providing children with age-appropriate spaces to play in, to explore and develop their gross motor and social skills.
In addition, we provide a safe and secure environment with security gates for both cars and pedestrians.
"We would like to thank Gan Gabi and Rivki ELC for a wonderful year. Our son has thrived in the nurturing, caring and fun environment here. He has learnt more from the incredible education program than we could have hoped for and has made so many friends. We look forward to another fabulous year next year and our second child beginning here soon."
