The Growing Gan is simply the best combo daycare/school in the area, hands down. We toured many facilities, and none of them had the warmth and spirit of the Growing Gan. Our daughter has been in the program since October of 2018 at 21 months, and we are continuing this fall, as she is thriving well beyond our expectations. Baily, the owner/director, takes great care in designing lesson plans with varied themes to promote creativity and learning. Lead teacher Diane cares for our daughter as if she was her own, lovingly guiding her from a delayed speaker to a well mannered chatterbox. We couldn’t be more thankful to have found the Growing Gan, it is so good that I’m shocked that there isn’t a multi-year waiting list like other top programs in the city. I recommend getting your child in while you still can!!!
We joined the Growing Gan family last September as it opened. We were so happy to find such a warm, loving environment for our baby boy. We were a little anxious, as Daniel is our first child, and as young parents we didn’t know what to expect. But Daniel – as well as we – fell in love with the place already on day one.
Dianne and Baily are affectionate and attentive, and we always feel comfortable to share our concerns with them, while they make sure to comply with our requests and philosophies for parenting, no matter how odd. They treat our son like their own and he is joyous to see them every morning anew.
The facility itself is amazing, with different activities and stimuli for the kids. It is brand new, and always clean and tidy. Dianne and Baily constantly update the books, toys, and equipment to keep the kids challenged and interested, while maintaining a healthy balance to make sure they are not overstimulated. They always think up new activities and keep up with relevant educational material for the kids as they mature.
Our personal favorite is the big specious yard, with trees and shade, which serves as a natural extension of the interior play-space, allowing the kids to spend much of their time outdoors in the fresh air. The kids are always aloud outside if they want to, and are free to explore their environment as they please.
Daniel is absolutely happy in the Growing Gan, and so are we. We couldn’t think of a better place for our son to grow up in!
The growing gan is the most amazing special place you could think of to send your toddler. They are beyond nurturing and loving, fun and creative. They instill a love of Judaism in the kids in such a carefree natural way, they stimulate their minds through the most fun spontaneous and messy activities. My son thrived there and really blossomed into a real little man with a major language explosion and voracious interest in the world around him thanks to the incredible people at this gan. Bailey and Diane are truly special women. I will most definitely be sending my second son to their gan when he is old enough. I can't recommend their fan enough.
We have loved the Growing Gan so much! We sent our 18 month old and he was surrounded by so much love and attention and care. Bailey puts so much into making the gan a beautiful, safe and exciting place for the kids. Diane gives so much love and care to each child and has endless energy. We loved how small it was and we loved that they provided healthy lunch and snacks. There were endless different exciting activities and they brought in Doda Mollie every week. Our son was excited every day to get to Gan and he learned and blossomed so much. We were so sad when his time there came to an end. We highly recommend the Growing Gan to everyone we know. It’s truly a wonderful and special place. I can’t say enough good things about it. Our son was so lucky to be there and we hope to send our other children in the future as well.
