Subsidies approved for families with kids are nursery schools

The cabinet has approved €16 million to subsidise the cost of nursery schools for children up to four years old.

It will subsidise the cost to families and feeding the children.

The plan covers the period 2022-2025, is co-financed by the European Social Fund under the Thalia programme, and national resources.

The allowance will cover 80 per cent of the children’s food, with maximum amounts ranging from €100 to €350 per month for each child, based on family income, the age of the child, the composition of the family and the hours they will attend nursery school.

The government says it seeks to provide low-cost childcare and education.

Up to 16,000 children will benefit from the programme, the government says.

More details will be announced in few days.
