The constituent entities of the federation will be provided with subsidies from the federal budget to co-finance the obligations to create preschool groups for children 1.5-3 years old in private kindergartens. The corresponding decree of the Cabinet of Ministers comes into force on 27 August.
The government will provide subsidies from the federal budget for the creation of groups in kindergartens for children aged one and a half to three years.
Each subsidized kindergarten group can have anywhere from 2 to 12 places. Such groups must comply with the sanitary and epidemiological requirements for the design, content and organization of the kindergarten's operating mode.
“I believe that such an additional measure to increase the accessibility of preschool education and enable the mother to get out of parental leave earlier will be effective in any case,” Larisa Tutova, deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Education and Science, told the Parliamentary Gazette earlier.
Such groups will be created for children who are not provided with a place in state or municipal kindergartens. The fee for a place in such a kindergarten will not exceed the maximum fee for state and municipal kindergartens.
