All new buildings, which are planned to be erected in Ufa in the nearest future, will be designed with special apartments for children groups on the first floors, the head of Ufa administration Irek Yalalov reported today at the meeting with participation of institutors of private kindergartens. Besides, businessmen may figure on certain preferences during payments for leasing of such apartments.

At present time more than 10 thousand children stand in kindergarten queues in Ufa.

“In the past we built 3-4 kindergartens every year” – Irek Yalalov reported – “In 2012 we’ve put 10 pre-school institutions into exploitation and our analysis shows that taking the growth of birth rate into account we won’t be able to solve the problem with shortage of kindergartens only at state level. Moreover, specialists predict further growth of birth rate and we expect at least 15 thousand newly born kids per year”.

The cost of construction of a state kindergarten per one child amounts to 500-700 thousand rubles. At the same time the expenses for organization of one private kindergarten make up 200-250 thousand. At present time 57 private kindergartens function in Ufa and 1100 kids at the age from one to three years visit them. Eight kindergartens have state licenses for educational activity and average monthly price of stay makes up 8-14 thousand rubles.
