The main objective of the program is
to provide targeted support for the implementation of creative and innovative solutions for working teachers who seek and achieve change for active interaction with participants in the educational process. This year, it will cover over 20,000 children from 206 kindergartens, in which 1,277 teachers work.
Kindergartens will receive funds for
construction of a modern environment and for the implementation of pedagogical practices in the gardens and outside them, as well as for the promotion of children’s motor activity. Projects for the socio-emotional development of children through activities in the field of fine arts, music and physical culture are supported.
