The Danish capital is growing every year with about 10,000 people. This fact has an impact on the number of kindergartens, day-care institutions and schools in the biggest city in Denmark.
In the end of March, the City Hall of Copenhagen signed a budget agreement for 2019, which includes 84.4 million kroner (8.1 million euros) for new day-care institutions and 42.4 million kroner (4.4 million euros) for the construction of additional child-related options. The agreement also earmarks 19.2 million kroner (2 million euros) for special education and 39.2 million kroner (4 million euros) to children with special needs. Regarding the good news, Frank Jensen, Mayor of Copenhagen said “I’m happy that a very broad group of parties once again stood together to solve the challenges faced by a Copenhagen in riveting growth. Now we have ensured that all the children can be seen to and we have decent offers for the city’s vulnerable”.
