2017-05-31 14:56:28

On May 26, the 41st Session of the 12th Standing Committee of Zhejiang Provincial People’s Congress voted to pass the Regulations on Zhejiang Provincial Pre-school Education, which stipulates that each township should set up at least one government-run kindergarten. The Regulations will be put into effect on September 1, 2017.
In recent years, Zhejiang has made great progress in pre-school education with a kindergarten enrollment rate of more than 97%. However, on the whole, pre-school education is still a weak link in all kinds of education at all levels. There are some prominent problems such as the unbalanced development of preschool education and the kindergarten crunch in some places. The Regulations demands that the governments at all levels shall include pre-school education into their national economic and social development plans, and introduce free pre-school education if conditions permit.
