The construction of kindergartens using the latest technologies and modern equipment is the starting point for investments in quality education and child development. Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman issued such a statement, while inspecting the reconstruction of preschool educational institution №179 in Kyiv. Previously in this building there was an authority for providing social services and now the institution restores its work for its intended purpose.
Having examined the progress of repair work, the Prime Minister emphasized that there would be no more cases of reshaping of kindergartens to other institutions and all preschool facilities in Kyiv and regions should resume work as preschool educational institutions. «This direction, along with the construction of new kindergartens are in line with the government's goal of eliminating queues in child care centres by 2020», stressed Volodymyr Groysman.
He placed a special emphasis to the fact that there exist necessary financial resources due to the decentralization process and implementation of the projects of the State Fund for Regional Development. Effective use of funds allowed only for the first half of the year to reduce the shortage of places in kindergartens across the country by 13 thousand - to 65 thousand.
"We will make every single effort to ensure that children attend normal kindergartens. The latest technologies, modern materials (during the construction of kindergartens) - this will be a big plus for children development as well as for enhancement of the education sector", Volodymyr Groysman accentuated.
