Welcome to the Chabad Garden School, a premier, boutique early-education center in the heart of Fort Washington. The early childhood years are the most important time in the life of a family and the most influential time for children as they start on the road to learning. Children of this age are naturally curious and interested in the world around them. This magical time of extraordinary cognitive, emotional and physical growth, combined with an excellent early childhood program, sets the foundation for later learning and social relationships.
We offer a creative, progressive & nurturing Jewish environment.
We believe that children learn best through teacher-supported play and creative open-ended activities.
Children are encouraged to explore their world in a thoughtfully planned setting and in a natural and aesthetically pleasing environment.

How we learn
At the Chabad Garden School, we believe in an experiential and intentional approach to teaching and learning. This approach fosters children's intellectual development as they are encouraged to explore their environment and express themselves through words, movement, drawing, painting, playing and other natural modes of expression. We promote an environment where children can develop critical thinking and problem solving skills necessary for a successful and meaningful life.
At The Chabad Garden School our aim is:
To nourish your child’s heart and mind as we develop cognitive, social, emotional and physical skills.
To encourage self-confidence and individuality by helping young children enhance their learning and socializing abilities.
To foster enthusiasm and responsibility for learning in each student.
To encourage each child’s natural creativity and curiosity.
To provide a curriculum geared to the different and developing interests of each child.
To provide a setting rich in materials and resources, a caring and highly qualified staff, a developmentally-appropriate program, and activities that are both teacher-guided and child-initiated.
To provide rich and meaningful Jewish content, including education about Jewish holidays, music, traditions and the Hebrew alphabet and language.
To communicate to parents the philosophy, goals and program of The Chabad Garden School and to provide opportunities for parent involvement and education.
