Marianne Early Childhood and Family Centre

Marianne Early Childhood and Family Centre in the city of Kiryat Gat provides all the early childhood services, including day care, as well as specialised services for children with ADHD, autism and other special needs. This centre includes a Therapeutic Unit, where paramedical treatments are provided in the fields of language and communication therapy, occupational therapy, emotional therapy, and physiotherapy.

With six rooms offering different treatments, it is the only facility of its kind in the area. Previously this unit provides over 4,000 annual treatments to over 300 children from Kiryat Gat and the wider region. With a high demand, and significant waiting lists, JNF UK supported the expansion of the Therapeutic Unit with the building of a second floor. This has added a further 13 rooms, trebling the number of rooms for this unit, treating over 900 children, providing over 12,000 treatments. This building has been completed and inaugurated in 2022.
