About Our Program and Curriculum

The Nest, an infant-toddler center on the campus of Ganon Gil Early Childhood Center at Temple Adat Shalom in Poway, CA, welcomes children ages 6 weeks to 2 years old. The infant-toddler center will be open year-round, excluding major secular and Jewish holidays. Admissions are rolling and contingent on availability. Parents can sign up for 2,3 or 5 day programs. We provide a safe and nurturing place where every child can investigate their surroundings, laying a strong foundation for future learning experiences.

We believe that infants and toddlers are capable of meeting developmental milestones through interactions with peers, warm and caring adults, and an enriching environment. Our program supports stimulating activities that promote fine and gross motor movement, receptive and expressive language, communication, and socialization.

The staff at Ganon Gil went above and beyond to make my daughter’s first preschool experience a positive one. Furthermore, they went out of their way to assure me that she was happy and thriving.

The loving, nurturing, and play-based environment at Ganon Gil makes my daughter look forward to coming to school every day, and we have seen her development grow by leaps and bounds since she started.
