The Gradel& Weisfeld Daycare Center

For most young parents the stress of finding good, affordable childcare rests heavily on their shoulders. But last year Bar-Ilan students with young children had one less thing to worry about when the University’s Gradel & Weisfeld Day Care Center, geared primarily for babies from the age of three months to three years, opened its doors.

 
The highly-anticipated Center is managed by Emunah, the religious women organization which also runs numerous such institutions throughout Israel. The on-campus Center is much in demand as BIU’s dedicated students balance their academic careers with married life, and registration was quite high as soon as the announcement of the opening was made.
 
Conveniently located on campus, the Day Care Center has enabled young mothers to focus on their studies while knowing their children are nearby in the hands of competent, professional caretakers. The fully equipped Center also provides a warm lunch for every child.
 
“I believe this service that is afforded to our students will allow young mothers to hone their talents and pursue their academic goals side-by-side with raising their children,” says BIU Director General Haim Glick.
 
Also aimed at making life easier for students at BIU is the new Internet wireless system which went up at the beginning of last semester, allowing them to access the Internet throughout the campus in open spaces, as well as in buildings — because who wants to spend all day studying inside when they could be outside enjoying some fresh air in the beautifully landscaped BIU campus? Set up of the system on the North Campus was completed first and continued on the South Campus.
 
“This wireless system improves the services Bar-Ilan provides for our students, researchers and lecturers dramatically,” notes Director General Glick.
