HERE'S WHAT MAKES GAN GABI SUCH A UNIQUE AND SPECIAL PLACE

Special Events, Expos, Incursions and Excursions are highlights throughout the year where we encourage family involvement and delight in community participation.

ALEPH BET THROUGH ART

3-5 YEAR OLDS

In our weekly art workshops, our kinder and Pre-prep rooms learn the Alef Bet (one letter a week) using a range of engaging methods and materials, including paint, clay, texture studies, design and experimentation.


CHALLAH BAKING

6 MONTHS- 5 YEARS

Who doesn't love a warm, soft challah for Friday night Shabbat meal? Every Friday the children make their own challah (either traditional or their own design) to take home and bake for Shabbat!

GARDENING

3-5 YEAR OLDS

Our kinders learn about plant nourishment and growth by growing and caring for the gardens. Each experience enables them to understand  how plants grow and the properties of a healthy environment.


MINI CHEF

3-5 YEAR OLDS

Mini Chef is an opportunity where the children can enjoy healthy foods as they cook and follow recipes. Classes are designed to engage children through involvement in a multi-sensory, entertaining and educational experience of healthy food.

MUSIC & MOVEMENT

3-5 YEAR OLDS

Morah Vered runs our fortnightly music and movement sessions. She sings with the children in both Hebrew and English, teaches them rhythm with instruments and develops their coordination through movement.

PERCEPTUAL MOTOR PROGRAM (PMP)

3-5 YEAR OLDS

The children look forward to seeing Morah Rivkah each week for PMP. In this active class they can use their abundant energy towards positive body movement and exercise.The program improves coordination, balance and flexibility in a fun way.

SHABBAT PARTY

6 MONTHS- 5 YEARS

Each Friday, the children explore the Shabbat experience through song and role play. The children help our "Ima" and "Aba" prepare for Shabbat and enjoy a traditional "Shabbat meal."

YOGA

3-5 YEAR OLDS

Yoga enables the children to unwind and relax. They learn about their brain and the flow of thoughts that enables them to move their body in sync.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Gan Gabi provides a high quality program that incorporates Jewish values through all areas of a child’s development based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) through an integrated approach. The EYLF is a guide which consists of Principles, Practices and Learning Outcomes along with each of their sub outcomes, based on your child’s identity, community, wellbeing, learning and communication. The Learning Outcomes are used to reflect on the children’s learning in a holistic manner and focus on what a child can achieve. This Framework enables Early Childhood professionals, Educators and Early Childhood Teachers to extend and enrich children’s learning, provide opportunities for them to develop a foundation for learning and for children to become successful learners.

The program emphasises learning as an interactive process and together a Jewish richness is embedded. Educators will prepare the environment for children to learn through active exploration. Opportunities are provided for children to choose from a variety of activities, materials and equipment with time to explore through discovery and involvement. Educators facilitate children’s engagement with materials and activities and extend the children’s interests and learning by asking questions or making suggestions that stimulate children’s thinking.
