"Finding a preschool that will take the time to get to know your child, work with your family to do what is necessary to protect and care for your child, and at the same time love and accept him for who he is
can be a true life-saver. The Honolulu Community Jewish Preschool (The Gan)
is such a school."
- Rachel , Hawaii Kai
"My little girl who recently started at the Gan says, ‘I love all my teachers and friends at school very much!’"
- Kristen, Honolulu
“Honolulu Community Jewish Preschool
was the perfect first school experience for my daughter. My daughter now has the skills, curiosity, and confidence necessary as she enters Junior Kindergarten at Hanahau’oli School.”
"I was so amazed how they were able to get my two year old son Spencer to take his nap. I realized that the teachers of this school were all on one team. When Spencer first went to school and had difficulty taking his nap on his own, one of the teachers made themselves available to walk and read to Spencer until he was sleepy enough to go down on his own. They did this until Spencer was able to adjust to nap time. I could not have asked for a more nurturing way to care for my child. Now, If only Spencer could take naps like that at home!"
- Liann, Nu'uanu
"We credit Max’s acceptance at Punahou with the excellent care and education he received during his time with you."
- Michael, Alewa Heights
"The Gan is wonderful! The teachers are highly qualified, exciting, creative, industrious, and caring educators. Our child has grown and developed beautifully because of their care, creativity, and diligence, as well as the nurturing environment of the school. The Gan is a hidden gem in Hawaii's early childhood education programs. We are so grateful to the Gan!"
- The Wilson 'Ohana
“We truly enjoyed the hearts of the teachers and the knowledge they imparted to our children. The small school setting felt like an extension of our family and not so overwhelming while transitioning from home to school."
- Philips ʻOhana
"We cannot express the gratification of seeing our children excel academically, physically and socially at Kamehameha Schools. We give so much credit to the staff and facilities at the Honolulu Community Jewish Preschool (The Gan). Succeeding to get three children into a private school shows the love, dedication and commitment the staff at the "Gan" has for it's pupils."
- Bart and Kellie, Kailua
"The Gan is fun and I miss my teachers, especially Miss Dinah!"
"What I most enjoy is the truly inspired religious programming. I am not Jewish, was raised Christian, but I find that the religious component brings universal themes to the children."
- Nitz ʻOhana
"I’ve also enjoyed the openness of the school to supplement curriculum with Keiki Crescendo music classes and Little Ambassadors Japanese classes. It’s been a well rounded program."
"...HCJP filled both of my daughters with memories they will NEVER forget!"
