Migdal Ohr’s day care centers were established in 1978. There are now four day care centers that care for over 200 children, from newborns to three years old, who are from underprivileged or single-parent homes.
Migdal Ohr has four day care centers–Isaacs, Batya, Simchat Ohr and Mitzpe–dispersed throughout the Migdal HaEmek campus. These day care centers are the daytime home to 247 children. The children, from newborns to three year olds, come from families at the lower end of the socio-economic spectrum and are mostly from Migdal HaEmek and its environs. The centers also care for orphaned children living in our foster home village. These children are looked after by a devoted and caring staff and receive warm and fresh meals daily which are prepared in kitchens at each location. Each center has a playroom and a wide range of enriching activities such as movement, rhythmic music, a mobile petting zoo and yoga. These centers provide quality care and services at a subsidized rate, whereby encouraging the parents to seek employment in an effort to increase the families’ long-term financial position.
