Our preschool program operates Monday through Friday from 7:30-6:00 throughout the school year, September through May, accepting children aged 6 weeks to 5 years old. The program has two classrooms, an infant room and a toddler/pre-K room. A half day or full day preschool option is available for toddlers & pre-K.

Gan Menachem Preschool will provide time for outdoor play each day that there is suitable weather. Unless it is below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, raining, hailing, or thunder storming, or the outdoor playground is inaccessible due to snow, children will have morning and afternoon outside play. Please make sure your child is dressed in appropriate, comfortable clothing and footwear for the season andweather each day. If outdoor play is limited due to weather or safety, children will be provided space for indoor large muscle play during the morning and afternoon scheduled times.
