How was our childhood. Kindergartens of the Soviet Union
Every person born in the times of the USSR will have his own memories of his childhood years. But surely one of the most striking will be the memory of the kindergarten. Someone imbued with light, joyful nostalgia, and someone first of all will have associations with semolina porridge, hated daytime sleep and constant campaigns even in the toilet. What can I say, kindergartens in the USSR had the characteristic features of the Soviet era, and all the best was for children. After all, as it was believed, they can become worthy citizens of the country only if they grow in suitable conditions.
In general, the Soviet states took care of the babies themselves, giving women the opportunity to relinquish most of the responsibilities for caring for children and quietly going to work for the good of the Motherland.
The kindergartens themselves were simply overcrowded, since in each family, as a rule, at least two children grew, and it was almost impossible to meet a childless couple at that time.
