Parents’ awareness program worked out by a group created by on UNICEF
initiative is now being put into reality in Armenia’s province of
Gegharkunik. The project’s aim is to provide the parents whose children don’
t attend kindergartens.

Education Ministry official Robert Stepanyan says 80 percent of the republic
children don’t get preschool education.

One of causes is unemployment – most jobless parents prefer to educate their
kids themselves.

Besides, there are regions in Armenia having no preschool facilities. 338
kindergartens have been closed in the republic over the last decade.

Education Minister Sergo Yeritsyan says the ministry intends to reach
considerable results by taking proper measures.
