State Comptroller, Micha Lindenstrauss, states in his annual report that the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor failed to do enough to increase the number of certified day care centers. He said, that “it must be taken seriously that the department of day care centers did not act to supervise the centers, which can be considered negligence towards parents and their children, who rely on the authorities on this matter.”

According to the report, many citizens who are entitled to subsidized day care centers, were left without a solution, which compromised their ability to seek employment. The lack of certified day care centers is especially prominent in the Arab sector, which has only 2.5 percent of all certified centers, while 27 percent of all infants are in this sector.
