Early Childhood manager in the local Municipality

Appointing an early childhood specialist manager at the top of the system in each city contributes to the proper allocation of resources, raising the professional standards of the various services, measuring them and creating the necessary partnerships.

It may seem simple to say "let´s all work together for the sake of the children under professional gaudiness" but in fact it is not less than a revolution and involves change in perceptions and political municipal Structures, but when it succeeds it is the success of all the partners and mainly of the children and their parents.

Mrs. Tova Dolev, the head of Education department in the Naytaya Municipality:

"Since the establishment of the Early Childhood Division in Netanya municipality and the appointment of Mrs. Sivna Golan as the early childhood director there has been a huge change in the services provided to young children and their families. Three early childhood centerswere opened in needy neighborhoods that offer professional programs and activities to parents and children, we already start to feel the change in our schools"

Mr. Itzak Levy, the head of Education department in the Or- Akiva Municipality:

"It was surprising to see how the establishment of
early childhood unit changes the approach of all the organizations that provide services for early childhood. It is now and much easier to recruit their cooperation for significant change in the services they provide"

 

Mrs. Ilana Zagul,the head of Education department in the Pardes Hana - Carcur Municipality:

"Thanks to our corporation with the Steinmetz Foundation we established an early childhood unit that is in charge on children from birth to age of six. It was clear to the local authority that it is most important to meet thechildren from the moment of their birthto avoid gaps in later stages. The unit helps us to pool all our resources together and mobile all partners (Ministry of Education,Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social Affairs), to coordinated work in the process of raising children"

Mr. Yossi Amar the head of Education department in the Hazor Municipality:

"The local municipality wants to take the responsibility on early childhood services that is why we appointed an early childhood manager in the municipality to conduct and coordinate all activities".

Mr. Aviv Keinan the head of Education department in the Bat Yam Municipality

"The meeting with the Iris from the Steinmetz Foundation sharpened the working model that I was looking for. The organizational model says: Division of kindergarten is part of a larger unit engaged in early childhood.
Therefore I was looking for a candidate with a broad background that can lead this unit. After we found such a person and appointed her as the head of this unit, I believe that within two or three years the
early childhood services in Bat Yam will be much better and our children will receive a whole and wide approach".

 

Mrs. Noga Gil, the head of Education department in Eemek Hamaaynot Municipality:

"We conducted with many efforts a Multi-organizational change
and appointed one professional coordinator to overlook this important age group from all its aspects"

"It was clear from the information collected that it will be important to build a unit for birth to six free that will be free of "Barriers" existing between the different organizations. That is why we established the early childhood unit.

An important application of the above is the appointment of Director of Early Childhood who is actually Junctionbetween the various systems of education, welfare, funds, Ministry of Health etc. He also help pooling all resources and creating a continuous overview therapeutic responses to this age group".
