HRANA News Agency – Ahmad Esfandiari, the head of Welfare Department, has said that kindergartens teaching children how to dance will lose their operating permits.

According to a report by Aftab News, Ahmad Esfandiari referred to some of the programs offered by kindergartens as “secular” and “immoral” and called a number of children’s programs aired on various television channels as “unacceptable.”

The head of Welfare Department added that his organization was seeking to implement religious teachings in kindergartens and would strive to be more active in promoting “Quranic preschools and mosques’ kindergartens.”
