    • Kavana H.Q.

    Schedule & Location: The Gan runs from 9am - 1pm during the school year. Vacation days are mostly in sync with the Seattle Public Schools calendar and the Jewish calendar -- please reference the confirmation email for a list of dates that the Gan will not run during the school year. The program runs Monday - Friday (you pick which 3, 4, or 5 days work for you!).  This program takes place at Kavana H.Q. in Queen Anne.

    Tuition: The Gan meets from September to June.  Although different months may have more or fewer Gan days (based on vacation/holiday schedules), our annual tuition is broken into 10 equal monthly payments.  How much you pay will be based on how many days a week your child attends the Gan; the monthly partner rate is $178/day of the week, and the monthly non-partner rate is $200/day of the week.

    Program Structure & Schedule:
    Moadon Yeladim is designed as a once-a-week program. In order to accommodate the growing number of participants for this program, we will be running Moadon Yeladim on two different days of the week (you choose which day works best for your family at the time of registration, first come first served):

    • Mondays from 4-6pm - NOW FULL
    • Wednesdays from 2:45-4:45pm

      Program Structure & Schedule:
      Havdalah Club will meet once a month on Saturday evenings for two hours, usually between 5-7pm or 6-8pm depending on when Shabbat is scheduled to end for each session (we'll confirm the time with those who register each month). Pizza will be provided for dinner. 


      Location: 
      In order to provide an intimate environment, hosting responsibility will rotate to different kids' homes.  You will have the opportunity to host, if you'd like to.

      Tuition: 
      As with most programs, we encourage you to sign your child up for the series, as consistent participation will lead to a greater sense of community, among other things! That said, you can sign up for individual sessions if that works best for your schedule.

      • Kavana H.Q.

      This monthly program is for families - parents and kids all together.  It is appropriate for children in preschool and elementary school (younger and older siblings are also welcome, but the content will be targeted specifically for that age range). 

      We strongly encourage you to sign up for the series - we're trying to build a sense of community here, and the more you come, the more you'll get out of it. There is an option to sign up for individual sessions if you can't commit to the series.
