Riga municipality reminds
In order to be able to announce the registration for both pre-school education institutions in accordance with the procedures laid down in Riga City Council Binding Regulation No. 191, Procedures for the Implementation of the Pre-school Education Function by the Riga City Municipality, it was necessary to obtain positive opinions of several institutions and licences from the State Education Quality Service.
Renovation of both municipal buildings was completed this year, thus creating new kindergartens. The works in both pre-school education institutions were carried out using the municipality’s financial resources and also a loan from the State budget. The project involved the redesign of the premises in both buildings, the construction of all engineering networks, the replacement and automation of the heating system, the construction of the ventilation system, the replacement of electrical wiring and lighting fixtures, and the installation of a video surveillance system, construction of a fire protection system, replacement of water and sewerage networks, construction of built-in furniture, insulation of the external structures, replacement of windows and external doors, landscaping and construction of a playground.
