Gan Shalom Berkeley has been a beacon of the best in early childhood education for the East Bay Jewish community for more than 20 years, and is in the midst of a historic capital campaign for rebuilding.

The new building is a two-story, state-of-the-art childcare facility that features an outdoor classroom.  This outdoor classroom promises to be a new paradigm of early-childhood learning and development, integrating environmental education in a seamless fashion with the rest of the curriculum.  It will consist of Israeli native plants and fruits that are used in various holidays throughout the year.
