Gan Talpiyot is a nursery in Hendon registered for 34 children who are split into two classes, a smaller classroom for 2 year olds and a larger classroom for children aged 2 1/2 to 4. The language spoken in the Gan is Ivrit, although English is also spoken at times, especially at the beginning of the year in order to settle the children. Through a key-worker system, the children are grouped by age, with a Ganenet in charge of the classroom. Additional activities are provided by Stretch & Grow as well as a music and movement teacher.
The nursery provides a variety of fruit and milk mid-morning as well as a well-balanced kosher lunch which is freshly-cooked on the premises every day. The hours of the nursery are 9am till 1.00pm including lunch, with the option of an afternoon session till 3.30pm. A sandwich and drink are provided at 3.00pm. On Friday Gan closes at 2.00pm and in winter, at 12.30pm.
