Despite the saturation of Jewish preschools in other parts of Brooklyn, Fort Greene has very few.
Gan on Greene will increase the number by one. Currently under construction, the new Jewish preschool will take up the bottom floor of a brownstone at 54 Greene Avenue.
Slated to open in September of 2016, the preschool will seat three classes and up to 45 children, aged 18 months to four years. Renderings of the space show an open, airy space, with plenty of tiny wooden chairs, blocks, and a reading section.
The exterior has already been somewhat modernized, photos and another rendering reveal.
The preschool will be inline with progressive values, a press release declares, emphasizing individualism and a welcoming environment.
“At the core of our mission is the belief that each child has unique talents, strengths and perspectives to contribute to the lives of others,” school director and 11-year early childhood educator Haddssha Kirschenbaum said of Gan on Green in a press release.
Tours start in January, according to the school’s website.
