AKIPRESS.COM - Some 1,58 preschool education institutions function in Kyrgyzstan now. 209 kindergarten buildings were de-privatized, Education Minister Gulmira Kudaiberdiyeva said during the online conference in AKIpress.

Kindergartens are overcrowded and this is a critical problem for Bishkek, the Education Minister said.

“Since 2005, the country population grew for more than 1 million people. Hence, the load for education system and the preschool education institutions in particular has grown,” the Minister said.

“I would like to remind that from 1991 to 2000, just 400 kindergartens remained functioning in the country from 1,696. Those kindergarten buildings were privatized and sold out. During that period, the preschool education coverage dropped from 35% to 6%,” the Minister underscored.

The country achieved good results for a relatively short period of time in terms of access to preschool education. “Since 2010 we achieved access to preschool education for 22% of preschool children. Several actions are undertaken now to increase the number of kindergartens in the country,” the Minister said.
