On 4 August, two new pre-school education centres were opened in the villages of Saratovka (Tashir city) and Karkop (Shnogh city) with the financial support of the European Union.
Under the EU-funded and UNICEF-implemented ‘Future Today’ programme, all the rooms provided to the centres were renovated and equipped, including the bathrooms. Teachers were selected and trained with the support of the ‘Step by Step’ Foundation, and the centres were equipped with learning materials, toys and games.
“Quality early childhood education and care lays the foundations for later success in life in terms of education, well-being, employment and social integration. Moreover, by providing access to early childhood education and care in local communities, we also provide new opportunities for women,” said Bruno Montariol, International Cooperation Officer at the European Union Delegation in Armenia.
