Over the past four years, 14 new objects of preschool education have been opened in Belgorod for 1933 places, including 694 places in groups for children under 3 years old.
“Previously, we took children from the age of 3, then from the age of 2. We can now accept 1 year olds. The city’s 16 gardens have spaces for children born in 2019 and 2020. There are only three microdistricts left, where there are still not enough kindergartens. But we have already called all the parents who are in the queue and offered alternative places, ”said Tatyana Berezka, deputy head of the education department – head of the preschool education department.
With the support of the federal and regional budgets, work is going on in three directions: the construction of new facilities, the purchase of premises for the creation of branches of kindergartens, and the support of private businesses that provide such services.
There are about 40 private kindergartens in Belgorod. They have the opportunity to participate in a competition held by the regional education department and create places for young children with financial support from the state.
For example, in 2021, the Yunga kindergarten passed a competitive selection and received 1 million 223 thousand rubles for the purchase of equipment and the creation of the necessary conditions for 10 young children. Previously, they only provided a care and attention service. Currently, the kindergarten is undergoing a licensing procedure for the right to carry out educational activities.
It should be noted that according to the results of this competition, 45 additional places were created in 2020, and 30 in 2021. The level of parental pay in the created places is equal to the municipal one and amounts to 2,760 rubles.
As a reminder, to provide a place in a preschool institution, parents need to submit an application on the website uslugi.vsopen.ru or call the multichannel phone number of the Preschool Education Department of the Education Department of the Belgorod Administration: +7 (4722) 38-06-01
