Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Aug 16, 2020 – As many as 40% of municipalities in rural areas in Croatia do not have daycare institutions for infants and toddlers, the Jutarnji List daily recently reported.

Parents who have children with disabilities are even in a worse situation since only 11.2% of rural municipalities have the appropriate daycare institutions for such pre-school children.

Furthermore, a mere, 5.4% of rural municipalities have daycare centres for adults with disabilities.

Those are the findings of a survey conducted in 215 municipalities with a population fewer than 10,000 by researchers Gordana Berc, Slavica Blazeka Kokoric, and Ana Opacak. The results of their research were presented by the Zagreb-based daily newspaper last Friday.
