Activities for taking care of preschool children besides being carried in public and private constitutions for children i.e. kindergartens are conducted in public and private centers for early childhood development. Precisely today in Kumanovo, Minister of Labor and Social Policy Dime Spasov, attended the opening of the private center for early childhood development, “Baltazar” in Kumanovo.


-As a result of the most significant benefits and initiatives that we as Ministry have contributed in the past few years for substantially increase of the number of private kindergartens. Currently are open 21 private kindergarten and soon will be open another 2 and there are several private businessmen who are interested to open private kindergartens, said Spasov and continued:

“It is also increased the number of Centers for early childhood development i.e. thete are 15 centers out of which, 3 are private with this one, which is third center that is opened in a row and is also private and we expect in the future to further develop this activity. ”


Spasov explained that the Centers for early children development perform the function similar to private kindergartens or perform care and education of preschool children and implement program activities of the program for early learning and development for children aged from 3 to 6 years.

-It is important to point out that it is precisely for this category of children at age from 3 to 6 years in the recent years was significantly increased the number of coverage in kindergartens and centers for early childhood development. The children at the age from 3 to 6 years old in 2006 were covered around 11,600 children, or 12.1% of the total number of children 3-6 years of age, and in 2015 were covered 27,200 children or 38.5% of the total number of children at the age of 3-6 years, which is significantly increasing of the coverage of children in kindergartens and centers for early childhood development, said Spasov.


-As Government, we will continue with series of incentives to encourage the private sector to increase the number of centers for early childhood development, but also private kindergartens. It is particularly important to mention that many of these private entities use the employment measures as I was informed, right here will be open 4 positions out of which 3 will be using the employment measures that we offer through the Employment Agency and which will further affect decrease of unemployment in the municipalities in the country, completed Spasov.
