The Government has assumed a commitment to eliminate queues in kindergartens by 2020, and the heads of city and regional state administrations should engage in finding the solution to this issue. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman while communicating with representatives of regional media outlets.
"I set the task to withdraw queuing in kindergartens by 2020. This is the number one issue - and I will demand from city mayors, heads of the RSA to support (this decision). It is necessary to settle an issue of queuing for attendance to Ukrainian preschools," stressed Volodymyr Groysman.
According to the plan of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, the number of places in kindergartens and preschools by 2020 should reach 97 thousand. This will completely satisfy the needs of the society. In this regard, the Head of Government stressed that the construction of preschools and kindergartens should be included in the priority projects list financed by the State Regional Development Fund. The draft State Budget for 2018 provides for the allocation of UAH 6 billion for the State Regional Development Fund to solve this problem.
