Giving young children the best educational start in life
The population of north Tel Aviv reflects the broader demographic shift trending across the city: the growth of young families. While, in the past, many young people moved away once they entered the next life stage of having children, young families are increasingly choosing to remain in or return to the city. The growth in young families has resulted in a greater need for schools and facilities for children.
The HaMashtela kindergarten complex is located on Moshe Vilenski Street in the middle of a residential area, nestled between a daycare center and a park. The kindergarten comprises four classrooms and caters to a total of approximately 130 children. The children are between the ages of 3-5. The multi-story complex is designed to support the kindergarten’s educational activities and play, with state-of-the-art classrooms and outdoor play areas.
There is one classroom and play area located in the original single-story building (renovated). In the new, two-story building, there is a large entrance hall which serves as a multi-purpose space for large group activities and community meetings; two classrooms downstairs, each of which has an adjacent outdoor area with play equipment and green space; and one classroom upstairs with an adjacent outdoor play area. Each classroom caters to 30-35 children, most of who live in the neighborhood.
The kindergarten operates from 7.30am – 2.00pm, after which afternoon activities are run by other educators at the same facility. The kindergarten also offers extra-curricular activities several times each week, including sport, music, and theater, which are run by special educators.
