Welcome to Gan Accademia, home to smiling children eager to learn and grow in the heart of the Financial District, Manhattan.

In 1999 Rabbi Shmaya and Rochel Katz founded Chabad of Wall Street serving the needs of the Jewish population in Lower Manhattan. Dedicating their lives to the community and providing an avenue to celebrate and practice their Jewish heritage.

In 2015 Rabbi Nissi and Chaya Eber joined the team and focused on the much growing residential community in FiDi. 

With the growing amount of young families in the neighborhood the need arose for a Jewish preschool arose.

Hence "Gan Accademia", the only Jewish Preschool in FiDi, based on Jewish values and inspired by the Italian methodology of education; Montessori and Reggio.

At Gan Accademia we believe the family plays a large role in a child's education. Therefore, we encourage parent's involvement and invite you to join our team in this fundamental process. There will be numerous occasions when your family can join on site and out of school events to meet the community and create lifetime memories.

We look forward to greeting you!
