Recently Chengdu Education Bureau issued the Measures for the Recognition and Management of Inclusive Private Kindergartens . The move is set to vigorously guide and support private kindergartens to provide inclusive services, so that more children can enjoy universal, inclusive, safe and high-quality preschool education.
It is reported that inclusive private kindergartens are run social organizations or individuals other than the state . They use non-financial funds to run non-profit private kindergartens that are qualified, standardized, open to the public, reasonably charged, and of good quality.
The concept of original public welfare kindergarten will be terminated. From now on, Chengdu kindergartens are divided into three categories: public , inclusive private and other private kindergartens. By the end of 2020, it is planned that the coverage of inclusive kindergartens in Chengdu will reach 80%, and there will be more inclusive varieties for citizens to choose from. At the same time, children studying in inclusive private kindergartens can enjoy financial subsidies.
In addition, any private kindergarten that meet the conditions for becoming an inclusive private kindergarten, can apply to the district (city) and county education administrative department for certification. If successful, the kindergarten can enjoy financial subsidies, and the same treatment as public kindergartens in terms of teacher evaluation, commendation awards, scientific research projects, continuing education, and child support.
