The Socialist Party candidate for the mayoral seat of the capital, Ion Ceban, promised that, over the course of the next four years, he will repair 80 kindergartens and will put into operation 20 new kindergartens and a hundred new groups, including nursery groups.
In a press conference, the candidate said that there are 159 kindergartens in Chișinău, most of which must be renovated. "We will evaluate the efficiency of the expenditure of 763 million lei, which is allocated annually for the maintenance of kindergartens. We believe that this money can be better spent for the final beneficiaries, that is for the children", said Ion Ceban.
Additionally, he promised that, together with his team, they will tackle the issue of child nutrition in municipal institutions, by creating a modernization program that will start at the most problematic institutions. Also, the online enrollment procedure to kindergartens will be improved. "We consider public-private partnership in order to set up kindergartens on the ground floor of new housing blocks, which may also be private, but will be maintained by the municipality," said Ion Ceban.
