Students of the Rainbow Center will have access to the school's well-equipped music room, study aides, sensory room and speech therapy facilities, Ekburg.ru reports.

Situated on the Ordzhonikidze district's Victory street, kindergarten No. 154 was first opened in 1959 under the ownership of Uralmashzavod. In 1998, the building was converted into the Constellation pre-school center.

Renovations began in February 2013 to restore the building into a modern pre-school facility with a student capacity of 100. Now open, kindergarten No. 154 will enroll children between the ages of three and four.

Kindergarten No. 154 is equipped with a music hall and a gymnasium as well as a modern dining and medical facilities, according to Ekburg.ru.
