Gan Menachem - Happy Days is dedicated to providing a warm, secure, Jewish environment where our students can feel comfortable exploring and learning. In this environment they can develop at their own individual rate and be proud of their heritage and who they are. This is achieved through offering a program enriched with hands-on experience in an integrated Montessori program.
All of the Jewish holidays are taught through hands-on experiences that allow each child to relate to the holiday and experience it in a meaningful way. All areas of the curriculum are open for the children to freely explore as their curiosity dictates. They will be involved with the exploring and manipulating of materials, and the testing of new concepts.
The teacher’s role is to facilitate and to encourage the child to explore and discover new ideas. The children’s interaction with each other will also be an important opportunity for growth; they will learn how to work and interact with each other within a warm social setting while finding constructive solutions to their problems. We are looking forward to working together with the parents to help each child reach his or her potential.
