TORREVIEJA council have given the green light to the design of the first public nursery in the municipality.
Currently, such day centres are private concerns and Torrevieja is one of the few cities across Spain – especially with its population of 85,000 – that doesn’t have a municipal run centre for children up to 3-years-old.
The municipal nursery project was one of those included and promoted by Councillor Víctor Ferrández back in 2017 and was one of the suggestions made by many of the local residents when asked for their own ideas as to where council funds should be destined. The project has now been approved as part of the extended budget and moving into 2018.
The building is planned to be located in a 1,000m2 plot of public land in Calle Las Hormigas close to the Avenida de las Cortes Valencianas and the Virgen del Carmen School.
