"I have instructed the local authority to apply for funding for the construction of nurseries, we have a national nursery construction program that will start this summer. We started from scratch in January, we have the feasibility studies for the three standard projects for nurseries with 50 places, 70 places and 110 places, we are waiting for the request from the municipality of Ramnicu Valcea and we have assured the local authorities that we can provide financing. For the nursery we have funding sources through a program assumed by the Government, we will start with financing from the budget of the Ministry of Development, in August we want to approve the first tranches for the financing," said the minister.
He added that the need for child care centers is very high, given that only approximately 4% of children of ante-preschool age have a place in nurseries.
