The Federation Council also commented on the initiative.
Elena Vtorygina, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Family, Women and Children, spoke about the initiative to introduce payments for refusing a place in kindergarten. The MP did not support this, saying that going to the garden is important for the development of the child.
I do not agree with the proposal - after all, a child who attends a children's institution receives not only good nutrition, but also education. Speech therapists, psychologists, educators are also involved with him. It is impossible to organize it at home, - said the deputy to RIA Novosti.
In addition, the deputy noted that today there are enough payments established for parents with children.
The proposal for payments was also evaluated by the Federation Council. Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Social Policy Alexander Varfolomeev believes that there is no need to pay anything, but it is better to direct these funds to the construction of kindergartens. He also noted that in the kindergarten, the child receives basic knowledge and goes through the stages of socialization.
Because it is easier for the kids who were in kindergarten to go to school. Not only in terms of preparation, but also in terms of the ability to communicate with their peers, - said Varfolomeev to the publication "Moscow 24".
