Children & Youth

Bushey United Synagogue has been at the centre of positive Jewish child engagement for generations. We offer our Bushey Babies Group, Gan-Nursery, Cheder, Children Services and so much more. We take pride in ensuring our young members feel comfortable and welcome, creating happy and long-lasting impressions for years to come.

Bushey Babies Group

The “Bushey Babies” Group is for mothers and their babies, aged 0 to 3, and meets once a week.

Sessions cost £5 per child, and the programme includes fun entertainers and presenters, and a delicious brunch. For more information about this and about our Friday Shabbat Party or to book, email Miri or phone on 07749 747441.

Bushey Gan Nursery & Pre-School

Our Gan is open for children aged from 18 months and prepares our youngest children for their school journey in a warm, secure and friendly environment. Check the Gan website for details.

"Bushey Gan is a loving, caring nursery and the staff have been providing a safe and supportive environment for my three children since 2014. I would highly recommend it to any prospective family"
Jessica Shoshan
“My daughter has been at Gan for over two years and has been so happy there. It is such a warm and nurturing environment: she loves her teachers, learning about the Jewish festivals and traditions, and she always comes out with a huge smile on her face. Can’t recommend highly enough!”
Jenna Bensasson
"I have been involved with Gan for the past 6 years, sending both my children there. I have always felt the Gan do the upmost to protect, care and support both parents and children, never more so than in recent times. It’s been a huge part of our lives and I will be sad to leave!"

Advice on schools

There are many great schools attended by our children. Our Rabbinic Team are on hand to help you find the right school for your child. Please get in touch with Bushey Families to discuss.

Bushey Cheder

Committed to Jewish Enlightenment

Bushey United Synagogue is proud to have a well-attended, professional and inclusive Cheder for children in school year 1 to year 6, where they learn the fundamentals of Jewish life. This is undertaken in an engaging, warm and fun environment for all children.

For more information and term dates please get in touch

School visits

Many local schools take the opportunity to teach their children about Judaism and the local Jewish community.

Schools have either brought in one of our fantastic Rabbis or Rebbetzens to speak to the children in assemblies and classes, or we have hosted school group visits in person in our synagogue building, where pupils are given a guided tour of our Synagogue with explanations from one of our Rabbinic team, with ample opportunity for the pupils to ask questions.

To arrange a visit for your school please email us.
