As Morski writes, in what was a deeply challenging pandemic-dominated 2020, this beautiful Istrian city distributed 155 grants for Porec newborns, as much as eight percent more than in the previous year, for which 232,500 kuna was paid from the city budget, equalling 1,500 kuna per Porec newborn.
Although the official data on the exact number of Porec newborns from back in 2019 isn’t yet known, the data on paid benefits shows that 12 more children were born last year in that city than were born in the year before, which is a very good indicator. It’s worth mentioning that not only is the growing number of Porec newborns encouraging, but the influx of people moving from elsewhere to Porec is also excellent.
The above means that the need for the placement of children in the city’s kindergartens is growing day by day, so the opening of new such institutions and the employment of new people is very well accepted.
The construction of the third kindergarten and nursery in the past three years alone in Porec is now underway, and after the opening of new primary schools in Zbandaj and Finida, the former school building in Veli Maj was converted into a new nursery, while European Union (EU) funds were used for the building of the former community centre and nursery in Dracevac.
Regional kindergartens in Varvari and Baderna were constructed back in earlier years, and this future practice in Zbandaj once again continues the good practice of opening preschools in smaller places near the homes of young families, which is very well accepted by both users and those from the education and child care profession. The kindergarten in Zbandaj will be the regional department of the “Radost/Joy” kindergarten from Porec, and it will be able to accept a total of 64 children from early to preschool age.
