Kindergarten crisis in Mongolia www.news.mn
A total of 309,670 children are expected to be enrolled in kindergartens for the 2020-2021 school year; 23 percent, or 77235 children, are two- year-olds. However, Mongolia does not have enough kindergartens to accept all these children. Therefore, only 17550 of children aged two-years have actually been registered to attend the state-owned kindergartens. In other words, most of these toddlers will be sent to expensive private kindergartens or – more likely – be stuck at home.
Mongolia re-opened all educational institutions from 21 September after the many-month quarantine prevent the spread of coronavirus.
