The Local Government Board (JGL) of Benidorm yesterday approved an expense of €92,795.40 to finance individual municipal supplementary teaching aid for students in municipal nursery schools, as explained by the Councilor for Education, Maite Moreno.

First, the Governing Board agreed to approve an expense of €37,118.16 for student aid for the last four-month period of 2021 and, on the other hand, it was also approved to acquire the commitment to authorize another expense of €55,677.24 to finance these same grants with a view to the first half of 2022.

The councilor has remarked in this regard the "importance" of the municipal nursery school model "to reduce educational inequalities among young minors", since they are centers "necessary for the development of the smallest by providing them with a pedagogical environment favorable, that favor their abilities and that promote social relations ”.

That is why the Department of Education complements the amounts of the regional aid for schooling with the aim, Moreno said, “that the families using the service have a lower cost in it or, if it is the case, total gratuity ”.

With regard to this course, the Benidorm City Council will not have to provide financial resources to make effective free schooling for 2-3 year-old students as the cost is assumed by the Generalitat. "However, the council does have to offer supplementary aid to students aged 0-2 years enrolled in municipal nursery schools" has qualified Moreno, who pointed out that this was the reason "why the Governing Board approved the expense yesterday" .

The Local Government Board also approved yesterday the bases of these aid that, as detailed by Maite Moreno, establish that “minors enrolled in municipal nursery schools who have correctly requested the autonomic aid in time and form, in the event of who could opt for it, and that the minor and his family unit are registered in Benidorm throughout the 2021-22 school year, except in cases of proven urgent social need ”.

The economic benefits are compatible with other subsidies, aid, income or resources for the same purpose.
