In the Odessa region since the beginning of 2019 queues at preschool institutions have been reduced to more than 700 places. This was achieved mainly through the licensing of private kindergartens. This was reported by the Department of Education and Science of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

"This year we plan to create more than 2000 additional places in kindergartens. Since the beginning of the year, 14 private kindergartens have already received licenses for the right to conduct educational activities; A new group has also been opened in a preschool institution. And in the near future, it is planned to open two more kindergartens on the basis of schools. Children should receive high-quality education, and we create appropriate conditions for this, "said Alexander Lonchak, Director of the Department of Education and Science of the OSA.

It should be noted that last year two new modern kindergartens were opened in the Odessa region, as well as the restoration of activity of two preschool institutions. In addition, ten private kindergartens were licensed to conduct educational activities. Also, seven preschool and 25 short-stay groups were created on the basis of schools, and 12 additional groups were opened in existing institutions.

Let's remind that, in order to completely eliminate queues in kindergartens in the region, the head of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov initiated the introduction of a "cash-by-child" mechanism for the financing of pre-school institutions. This will stimulate the private sector to open new kindergartens and help solve the problem systematically.

Development of a network of preschool institutions in the Odessa region is one of the key priorities of the Strategic Action Plan of the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov "Intelligent Region".
