As a condition for continuing to place the child in Gan, both parents must fill and sign a declaration for Single Parents and Civil Partnerships (the form is published online), and submit copies of the parents’ Israeli IDs, included the appendix where the child’s information is listed to the Gan Department via email.

This certificate will be used by the municipality through the duration that the child attends Gan in the municipality.

Good to Know

Registration of students is based on the cut-off dates of the Ministry of Education. Children who are not within the dates set by the Ministry of Education cannot register, even if the difference is one day! There is no mid-year registration to Gan for a child that is not within the cut-off dates of the Ministry of Education.

Registration is not placement! Registration is the process where parents ask the municipality to include their child in the placement process in accordance to the absorption capacity of the Gans. The registration period is uniform so there is no priority to those who register first.

Placement at a Municipal Gan

The Gan Department will do its best to place your child in accordance to the preferences you chose. At the same time, professional and systemic considerations are taken into account.

The composition of a Gan is usually two age groups, for example, a Gan class for ages 4 and 5, or a Gan class for ages 3 and 4. A single age Gan class is possible. Changes in the composition of the class ages will be in accordance with the number of enrollees.

Good to Know

The municipality cannot guarantee that your child will be placed at your first preference, but additional factors are taken into account before the final placement is made (listed below)

After all of the children of the registration region have been placed, children from outside of the registration area will be placed. There may be changes to the registration regions based on the number of registrants in each neighborhood and the amount of Gans in the area.
  • Age of the child – priority of placement within the neighborhood will be given to older children. That is, the placement for the desired Gan will be done from oldest child to youngest.
