The role and importance of pre-school education both in the development of children and in the general educational system is proven by all pedagogues. Pre-school education has a positive effect on the quality of elementary education; raises the child's perceptivity and promotes learning progress. The main objective of pre-school education is to create a basis for the physical, psychological and intellectual development of a child; preparing him/her for the school.

This goal is pursued by the 'Promoting Readiness of School children and Equal Opportunities at the Start of General Education ' sub-component, which is aimed at promoting the inclusion of children in pre-school education, the preparation of children for elementary school, the development of children's abilities and skills in pre-school age, which is implemented through the introduction of alternative and low-cost educational services. In pre-school programs children from 4 to 6 years old are mainly enrolled. It should be noted that institutional investment are mosly covered from grant funds which are mainly directed to strengthen the facilities; via partial renovation, procurement of furniture, equipment, educational materials and itc.
