Yekaterinburg opens 105 kindergarten since 2004
In 2004, Umnikova and other school officials launched a program aimed at developing the network of preschool educational institutions by the year 2012. When the educational development efforts began, the region had 225 municipal kindergartens. By 2005, six kindergartens had been renovated and reopened, Ekburg.ru reports.
In 2012, 21 new kindergartens have opened. By the end of the year, the school system will finish renovating an additional 18 kindergartens - five of which are already completed.
Children who are five years of age are entitled to enter kindergarten in Yekaterinburg.
Umnikova said that the kindergarten expansion work in Yekaterinburg will spark a larger regional expansion in education. He said that the newly-opened kindergartens will remain permanent learning institutions and will not be closed down any time soon, according to Ekburg.ru.
Funding for the educational development project was provided by the city, with additional support from broader regional governments. The 2012 expansions were funded entirely by regional treasuries outside Yekaterinburg.
