As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, there’s been a bit of good news for the people of Osijek. Parents whose children were absent from kindergarten due to them needing to be in self-isolation or will pay less of a fee for kindergarten costs, reports local portal Glas Slavonije.

This is good news which was initially presented on Wednesday by Osijek Mayor Ivan Radic, who also explained that this is a proposal to amend the rules on the conditions and manner of the participation of parents in paying the price of early and preschool education programmes in Osijek kindergartens.

“Paying for the stay in kindergartens in these challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic is a very important topic that concerns all of us. Today, we’re faced with the situation in which a large number of kindergarten groups are in self-isolation because of the children themselves, but also their parents, and even because of the staff, who are unable to work due to having contracted the novel coronavirus,” said Osijek Mayor Radic.

“Specifically, for a period of three to five days, the price would be made lower by 20 percent, and in six to eight days, it would be decreased by 30 percent. It’s important to note that this only applies to children’s absence if it is related to COVID-19!” the Osijek Mayor added.

This proposal is valid until March the 31st, and it included the month of January which is now behind us, so parents will receive a reduced bill in February for the previous month for those days when their children were absent from kindergarten due to needing to be placed in self-isolation.
