Congregation Ner Shalom of Woodbridge has announced the creation of their Early Learning Center, Gan Teva, opening Fall 2021.  Gan Teva (“Nature Garden” in Hebrew) will offer a play-based curriculum, celebrating Jewish tradition and a love of nature.  The Temple’s ten acres will serve as the outdoor classroom, honoring the belief that children learn best and are happier and healthier when outdoors.

Gan Teva is open to children 3 to 5 years of age from all backgrounds.  The first class will have a maximum of 12 children with one teacher and one aide. This number will allow students to learn in an environment full of warmth, joy, and the excitement of discovery.

School Director Rabbi Elizabeth Goldstein leads the congregation Ner Shalom, the only synagogue in Prince William County, Virginia.  Rabbi Goldstein will also serve as the Judaic consultant for Gan Teva.

Leaders in Prince William County have identified the critical need for additional, quality pre-school education in Northern Virginia.  Gan Teva provides the first values-based, nature focused program in the County.
