National Plan for promotion of preschool education (ages 3-4 years)

what was decided?

The National Plan of the Ministries of Education and Finance with the collaboration of the local authority for promotion of preschool education (ages 3-4 years)


In fact, the second assistant preschool teacher reform continues the process that began in 2012 with the implementation of the government decision regarding public, free of charge education to toddlers aged 3-4. The reform was launched following government approval and in collaboration with the Federation of Local Authorities, and consisted of including a second assistant, in addition to the first one, in preschool classes for children aged 3-4. The reform plan includes an increase of about NIS 400 million in preschool budgets.

What's up with that?

As at August 2016, the reform has been implemented, and in the vast majority of relevant preschools a second assistant was added. However, the process is laden with difficulties - insufficient training of the second assistants, the fact that most of them are employed by sub-contractors, no budgeting for Fridays, etc.
