The project, worth 45 million kuna (€6 million), is funded from the European Union’s funds and is aimed at the education of various professionals in the educational system, who will care for 1,537 children.
Minister Aladrović said that this was only a fragment of all investments in the educational system.
He added that the project also connected three priorities of the EU Social Fund. For instance, it will produce a positive impact on employment, then it will enable women to get jobs and also enable children of preschool age in educational programmes.
Minister Fuchs said that the target is to have at least 90% of all preschool children in the whole of Croatia included in preschool educational programmes by 2026.
Fuchs said that approximately 40 municipalities were still without kindergartens, and investments worth 1.6 billion kuna (€213 million) would change the situation for the better.
