At the Dumbo Gan, DUMBO’s Top Rated Local® children’s learning center, we love teaching and helping children grow! We offer small class sizes and optimal student-to-teacher ratios to successfully promote the growth and development of each student on their own level. Our comprehensive curriculum introduces math, science, real life skills, English and Hebrew language and vocabulary, and communication skills through the most natural, effective, and proven method for children — play!

At the Dumbo Gan Brooklyn preschool, our highly qualified and experienced staff is dedicated to fostering a love for learning in children through a successful first classroom experience  — helping to set your child up for a successful academic career. Overall, our goal is to create a home away from home, where students can grow, learn, and explore.

All age groups experience weekly classes of gymnastics with Gymstars, music and movement with Frank Gallo from Rolie Polie Gaucamole, and Israeli Hebrew music by Yonatan Gutfeld. The children bake Challah bread every Friday in preparation for Shabbat and enjoy other baking activities throughout the week.
