The Soseh Kindergarten opened in April 1998 with the aim of meeting the needs of the children of Artsakh War soldiers and their families, by assisting and providing for their early childhood education. In April 2014, the Nagorno-Karabagh (Artsakh) Republic Seismic Service found the building to be hazardous and ordered the closure of the kindergarten.

The ARS Central Executive Board decided to demolish the building and rebuild a new state of the art facility. The newly constructed kindergarten will house more than 130 students. Through the community’s generous donations, the project is near completion and the opening ceremony will take place on Sept. 6.
