Welcome to Gan Mah Tov

We are a premier Jewish preschool in the East Bay

At Gan Mah Tov our aim is clear: to provide an exemplary Jewish education coupled with an unsurpassed secular preschool curriculum. To that end, we offer an innovative program for children designed to develop social skills, ignite and strengthen imagination, build self-confidence and foster pride in our Jewish heritage.

Gan Mah Tov welcomes Jewish children of diverse backgrounds, 8 months - 5 years old.

Love of Learning

At Gan Mah Tov we provide the foundation for a lifetime love of learning. We are committed to providing a safe and engaging environment where children feel loved, valued and supported as they explore the physical and social worlds around them.

Our preschool program provides a blend of teacher instruction with play-based learning and emergent curriculum. We emphasize sensory rich play, nature-based learning, and Jewish experiences that are relevant and exciting to young children. Teachers develop close, individualized relationshipships with children, and create an atmosphere where children can develop healthy social skills and establish strong, lasting friendships.
