Welcome to Gan Aviv, a Jewish school for children ages 2 months to Pre-K. Founded in 2007, it was created for Jewish working parents. With 5+ years of experience, our program's success is now the model for other centers in the area.
Gan Aviv offers a bilingual English-Hebrew program, aimed to support language skills and development of children growing up in bilingual environments. We offer hot Kosher lunches for an additional fee, including meat days twice a week. Bergenfield and New Milford locations are Kosher and Nut free only, our Fair Lawn location allows non Kosher food. All baked goods, food for parties and anything that is served in the classrooms must be Kosher and nut free in all 3 locations.
We offer age-appropriate activities focusing on the physical, emotional and social needs of each individual child in a stimulating, creative, nurturing and safe environment.
A child's education is a parent's greatest responsibility. The decisions you make, the foundation you lay, the values you instill will motivate and define your child for life.
At Gan Aviv, it is our goal to ensure children are provided with a strong academic foundation, Jewish education and values, and some good, healthy fun.
We practice what we teach: healthy living and eating, sharing, family values and community involvement are all integral parts of daily life at Gan Aviv.
We provide a safe, nurturing environment for children to develop a strong sense of self and learn what being Jewish is all about. Through learning and playing, we allow children to develop a Jewish identity and instill values that will guide them throughout their lives.
Gan Aviv offers a variety of programs to fit every family's needs. Our educational goals and curriculums are divided by age group to best support every child's developmental stage.
Gan Aviv is open year round and operates a limited holiday and vacation schedule to support working parents. We close for major Jewish Holidays and mandatory Federal Holidays. Unlike other centers, we do not close for a winter break.
We offer the following program schedules in 2, 3, 4 or 5 days per week:
Partial Day Schedule – 8:30am - 12:00pm or 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Full Day Schedule – 8:30am - 3:00pm

Our teachers and assistants are all carefully selected based on strict criteria. Our main goal is to ensure your child receives plenty of love and attention from caregivers who truly enjoy working with children.
All of our teachers meet the qualifications and background checks required by the state of NJ.
Each class is run by a certified teacher, and has a Hebrew-speaking teacher assigned to it.
Gan Aviv offers a wide variety of fun and educational activities to fit every age. We pride ourselves in our ability to provide children with activities appropriate for each child's cognitive and developmental abilities, for the child's complete benefit.
