This program is for students going into kindergarten who are Hebrew speakers. The class meets once a week for an hour-and-a-half and focuses on improving the language and vocabulary skills of students through Hebrew dialogue, play, listening to stories, and songs.

Kitat Gan is an educational framework for five-year-old children, in which they attend class with other students of similar backgrounds, who are members of the Israeli community. Here they will create new friendships and develop a sense of belonging within the Israeli community while we focus on the cultivation and promotion of Hebrew language and communication skills.

The program is written in accordance to the children’s abilities and developmental stages while taking into account the school’s defined goals which includes the following components:
Language skills: Understanding spoken language and conduct discourse in Hebrew. Enrich vocabulary and expressive language.
Establishing life skills such as: Creating a sense of belonging, developing friendships, maintaining health and safety, and more.
Educational activities of various kinds: Learning concepts of language, numbers, colors, days of the week, and more.
Activities focused on promoting education in various fields of knowledge, such as: seasons, Jewish holidays, Torah, Shabbat, me and my body, and family.
Listening to stories and activities with books: Enriching the linguistic treasury and promoting literacy processes as a foundation for reading and writing, learning recitations and songs, social games, movement activities, expressive work, symbolic games, and expanding their world through content related to their immediate surroundings and Jewish/Israeli life.
In addition, emphasis will be placed on the recognition of Jewish/Israeli life and culture, holidays and events in an interactive, engaging and creative environment appropriate for this age group. Along with the curriculum, students and their families are invited to celebrate the Jewish holidays and Shabbat with us.
Parental Partnership: The pedagogical staff operates in a systemic approach that relates to the group of children, their parents, their families and the characteristics of the community to which we belong. Communication with parents will be through several channels:
Parents’ Meeting: During the first month of the school year, a group meeting will be held in which the teacher will present the annual program and classroom culture, as well as work expectations.
Celebrations and Events: During the year there will be a number of family activities in the classroom and with the school as a whole.
Regular Reports: Parents will receive updates about the program’s progress and significant events through the group’s website.
