The Gan Frida was founded in 2007 and is a Montessori Early Childhood program that incorporates a warm Judaic environment and a robust learning schedule. Catering to the Russian Jewish Community of South Florida, our program meets the needs of native Russian speakers, by creating a linguistically rich multi-lingual environment. We are community-based program, keenly in tune with the needs of our children and families.


The Gan Frida is a project of The Chabad Russian Center of South Florida founded and directed by Rabbi Alexander and Chanie Kaller. Our school was established to meet the educational needs of our growing Jewish Russian Community.

Chabad Russian Center’s The Gan Frida preschool, the first Russian Jewish early childhood program in the area, is committed to providing a superb educational experience to young children in the Jewish community in the South Florida area.

We work with our Gan Frida families to facilitate the social, physical, intellectual, creative, emotional, and spiritual development of their children. The Gan Frida strives to enable each child to thrive as an individual, and to be a contributing member of a caring community.

Russian language and culture is an integral part of our school, as we work to encourage the Jewish Russian Community with an opportunity for Jewish education for their children in a familiar setting. Of course, not all of our school families are of Russian descent, and we are a proud diverse community with multiple languages and cultures infused in each classroom.

The Gan Frida seeks to create a stimulating and enriching environment for each and every child. Our center is devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents.

In addition, we seek to spark in each child a curiosity about Judaism and share the special values of our Jewish heritage. Through the dedication of our teachers, we seek to commit each child to a lifetime passion for learning.
