The head Start program in Israel is led by former prime ministers wife, aliza olmert, and the committee of education and the committee of children’s rights in the Israeli parliament – the program Promotes healthy prenatal outcomes, promotes healthy family the development of infants and toddlers beginning as young as newborn infants. It also helps to create healthy development in low-income children age’s three to five. Programs offer a wide variety of services that depend on a child's and each family's heritage and experience, to influence all aspects of a child's development and learning.
Head Start offers parents opportunities and support as they identify and meet their own goals, nurture the development of their children in the context of their family and culture, and advocate for communities that are supportive of children and families of all cultures. The building of trusting, collaborative relationships between parents and staff allows them to share with and to learn from one another.
Along with chen segal-bluth and naama nagar we were asked to design a head start center. Our main goal in the design was a dynamic and modular space that can change according to the specific needs of different communities and the needs of a small space that consists of many different treatment and servises. We also took in mind that the design should be able to be applied to an existing building to lower the construction costs
