The Generalitat Valenciana ‘s Minister of Education Vicent Marza confirmed this week that nine nurseries across the Marina Alta will offer free places for children aged 2-3 next year.

Marza was in Pedreguer on Tuesday when he made the announcement, confirming that both municipal escoletes managed by the municipalities themselves and those managed by concessionary companies will benefit from the scheme.

The nurseries that will offer free places in 2018/ 2019 are:

  • El Albergue in Benidoleig
  • Silene d’Ifac in Calpe
  • l’Escoleta in Denia
  • Mestra Vicenta Estela in La Xara
  • las guarderias in El Verger
  • las guarderias in Ondara
  • la Glorieta in Pedreguer
  • la Trilladora in Pego
  • l’Oroneta in Javea

Denia’s Councillor of Education Rafa Carrio explained that once this scheme is in place, the Generalitat will study the possibility of opening more state-funded nurseries for children aged 2 in public schools across the Marina Alta.

Denia is the busiest municipality for children aged 2-3 receiving state-funded nursery education, offered at the Cervantes,Llebeig and Vessanes schools.

The Generalitat’s Ministry of Education has increased its budget for the region to €42 million to be able to offer these free nursery places.
