Star Learning Center
The Star Learning Center is an educational center for seriously ill and immunocompromised children. We provide a sterile environment where preschool children can learn, socialize, and engage. Our professional and dedicated teachers, immersive curriculum, and enriching materials ensure that a seriously ill child’s social and cognitive development do not stagnate.
Preschool patients thrive in our unique classroom: in fact, prominent pediatric oncologists have marveled at the marked impact that participation in Kochavim Star Center has on their patients’ overall wellbeing. While their everyday lingo includes ports and pricks, IV drips and transfusions, in Kochavim’s classroom these preschoolers can be normal children. They can enjoy finger painting instead of finger pricks; they can be stimulated rather than distracted. Their curiosity, social skills, and cognitive development can be nurtured healthily, rather than being stunted by the confines of pediatric illness.
