About Ganeinu Long Day Care and Preschool, St Ives, Sydney
Ganeinu, pronounced ga-nay-nu is a community based early learning centre based in St Ives on Sydney's North Shore, established in the community since 2008. Initially located at 97 Killeaton Street, we are now established at 27 College Crescent, as part of Chabad North Shore.
In November 2020 we were awarded the rating of Exceeding the National Quality Standard for Education and Care, with our After School and Vacation Care service - Gan Izzy.
At Ganeinu, every family and child is warmly welcomed, regardless of cultural background. Jewish traditions and values are embedded into our educational program in a culturally diverse and inclusive “home away from home” environment where we connect and unite families of all backgrounds as a community.
We offer long hours (7:30 am – 6:00 pm) with flexible fee and care arrangements for working families, providing daycare and preschool for children from 2 months to 6 years.
We aim to maximise the future potential and opportunities for every child through our educational program, focussing on each child's physical, emotional and cognitive needs using a Whole Child approach.
We provide a safe and secure environment with automated front entry gates for vehicles, leading to on site parking for pick up and drop off. Secure pedestrian entry is also available from Link Road.
Depending upon health & safety advice, preschool children have opportunities to get out and about in the community with excursions planned to broaden their understanding of the world in which they live. Younger children benefit from Incursions, when we invite special visitors to share their skills, knowledge and experience to our centre.
Fresh, Kosher (Chalav Yisrael) vegetarian meals are cooked on site daily by our qualified chef. Our menus are regularly assessed by Munch and Move to ensure we cover all nutritional requirements.
We staff our service with highly qualified educators from the local area. We also accept students from various educational institutions on practicum, who are furthering their studies for a career in early childhood.
