We are Gan Chaya. We create leaders. We grow community. We are passionate about what we do and put our heart and soul into every detail.

We base ourselves off the Torah’s teaching “Educate a child according to his way”. Every child has their own unique way of learning and discovering. Here in Gan Chaya, we strive to provide each child with their unique learning experience while working together to create the beautiful community environment that Gan Chaya is.

Environment is key when it comes to nurturing our children. We are blessed to have our school located in the heart of Brentwood, with nature surrounding us everywhere on our facility. We spend a good amount of our day outdoors and make our indoor environment just as natural.

When educating a child, there are 3 partners. The parents, the teacher and the child. Here at Gan Chaya we value the parents role as the children’s first teacher and strongest partner. We cherish your involvement and value your input. We believe that such a partnership will ensure synergy between home and school.

With all this said, we are proud to welcome you to Gan Chaya!

The programs of Gan Chaya arise from a common desire for excellence in meeting the needs of children and their families. Our philosophy is one of nurturing, growth and development, relationships and understanding – all in the goal of establishing a love for learning, a fascination with holidays and life cycles events, and a passion for approaching the world in a Jewish way.

Children are treasured for their uniqueness and individuality, and are encouraged in self-expression.

The basic philosophy behind our curriculum is that children learn best by doing. The program activities are therefore designed to help children learn more about the world, their heritage and their values through hands-on activities and active involvement.

While Gan Chaya operates classrooms which are individualized in their goals & objectives, each classroom forms its specific aims within the context of these principles.

We believe that the home is the most important factor in a child’s development. We will always strive to support and complement the family in order to promote healthy development of children and parents. that loving, trusting, and respecting each child makes that child capable of loving, trusting and respecting others. that each child should be guided and encouraged to have a positive self-image. that children need a nurturing, safe and happy environment which promotes their natural curiosity and desire to learn. that play is the work of children and through it children explore the world around them by using their senses. that children deserve to have teachers whose values enable them to be excellent role models.

At Gan Chaya we see each child as a unique and precious gift entrusted into our care. This concept is what governs our school’s educational approach. at Gan Chaya, emphasis is placed on the individual child and on encouraging each child’s innate inquisitiveness and thirst for knowledge. Small classes and high student-teacher ratios ensure each child receives individual and caring attention.



When i think of Gan Chaya I think of love, joy, and learning. My kids are so happy to go to school each day and experience the love of learning. Gan Chaya is like one big family! We have community events and family Shabbat dinners which are always so special to participate in. I love Gan Chaya because my kids love it so much!
