NIS 1 Billion for Day Care Building Supervision


The government on Thursday said that it would allocate one billion shekels to supervision of day care centers, nurseries and kindergartens. The decision was made at a meeting between Industry, Trade, and Labor Minister Shalom Simchon and Treasury officials.

As a result, it is expected that many structures that serve as kindergartens and day care centers will need to be improved to meet standards set by the government. Many of the buildings are substandard right now, and part of the billion shekels will likely be spent on bringing them up to code.
