On 2nd May 2018, the Bulgarian Government adopted a Plan for Implementing the Strategy for Reducing Early School Leavers. The Plan covers the period 2018-2020 and contains policies and measures to prevent children from dropping out of kindergartens and schools.
It mainly aims at carrying out compulsory pre-school education for children aged 4 in order to better adapt to the initial learning process. By the end of 2020, 90% of children of this age are expected to be included in the pre-school system.
