Bishkek, Nov. 17, 2017 / Kabar /. 23% of preschool children go to kindergartens throughout Kyrgyzstan, Vice Prime Minister Cholpon Sultanbekova told during the governmental hour at a meeting of the parliament on Thursday.
MP Torobai Zulpukarov asked how many children attend pre-school educational institutions today. "In 2014, it was 12%. Is there any growth today?. If there is, then what is the reason for this, because, as is known, not many kindergartens were built," the parliamentarian asked.
The Vice Prime Minister answered that today 23% of preschool children go to kindergartens. "The number of kindergartens is growing. There is also a private sector. There are kindergartens, which are funded by different funds. That's due to these kindergartens and there was an increase in children attending kindergartens," said Sultanbekova.
Totally there are 1 thousand 62 pre-school educational organizations functioning in the republic, 152 thousand 216 children are educated in them.
