Kindergarten building expanded, increasing education and training in Hungary

As the population of Győrszentiván, Hungary grew, the need to expand kindergarten services became clear to enable more children to access educational facilities.

Additional tools


Before the project, kindergarten facilities were available in four different sites—two in the Móricz Zsigmond primary school, and two in the Váci Mihály school. The project expanded the kindergarten at Győrszentiván, adding 1 000 square metres to the original 200 square metre building. Four new rooms were created for classes, as well as an individual development room, staff rooms, a hall, and a small gymnasium. The outside playground area was also renovated.

The renovations included a fixed induction system and facilities for hearing-impaired children. In addition, new equipment was purchased for the playground, with the aim of supporting outdoor play and a more extensive educational programme. The individual development room will serve as a quiet environment to prepare children for primary school, specifically those needing help with the transition.

Helping children develop

As a result of the project, an additional 100 children will be able to access kindergarten facilities. These children, as well as those previously enrolled in kindergarten, now have their own space to enjoy classes and bond with classmates of the same age. The expansion of the building by 1 000 square metres allows all kindergarten children in the region to mix and learn together.
In addition, the project created two new teaching positions within the community.
