The Finestrat Department of Education report that they are once again summoning municipal aid for children under 3 years of age enrolled in nurseries or Nursery Schools authorized by the Department of Education of the Generalitat Valenciana with an important novelty: they increase the amount, on all for babies under 1 year. Their families will now receive €100 per month, instead of €70. Those born in 2021 also benefit from this increase, that is, babies aged 1-2, which goes from €50 to €60 per month. In the case of children aged 2 and 3, the aid remains at €30/month. In addition, it is compatible with the Conselleria children's bonus.

In the words of the mayor of Education, Mª Dolores Viudes, “Our objective continues to be to support families in reconciling educational facilities and, in addition, reducing school fees. As for facilities in Finestrat, we have a 2-year-old classroom in both schools, both the CEIP Puig Campana and the CEIP Balcó de Finestrat; We also have our own Municipal Nursery School, the EMUFI, for children under 3 years of age. And, aware of the moment of escalating prices that we are experiencing in all areas, every year we call for monthly aid that we have decided to increase. In this way, we reduce a little more the fee that families pay in Nursery Schools each month and we continue to support them to reconcile in this sensitive and early age group such as babies up to 3 years old ». 

Last year, around twenty families benefited from this municipal aid which, in turn, is compatible with the children's bonus offered by the Ministry of Education, without exceeding the amount of the quota corresponding to education. This is the 6th year that the council calls for this aid with an appropriation of €19,000 from the municipal budget.

The amount of aid ranges from €30 per month for children aged 2-3; for the age group from 1 to 2 years (born 2021) the aid is increased from €50 to €60; and in the case of the smallest (born in 2022), which are babies under 1 year of age, the aid also increases from €70 to €100.
