This is already the 55th nursery school. The new facility in Rembertów at S. Fiszera St. places 150 places for children; its construction and furnishing cost PLN 5.5 million. This week the children started their adaptation classes there.

The nursery school features five spacious rooms, including one for recreation, and a large playground. The project was carried out in the “design and build” format.

“Nursery schools have been a priority for me for a decade, so having invested a great deal in them from the very beginning, we are now seeing the results. In 2017 we should complete the construction of eight more nursery schools providing care to 1000 children,” said Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, Mayor of Warsaw, during her visit to the new nursery school. By the end of this year, the city is planning to complete the construction of four nursery schools in Białołęka (for 500 children), and one similar facility in each of Wesoła, Bemowo, Praga-Południe and Żoliborz.

Each year we see a growing availability of nursery services thanks to the construction of new nursery schools, the “daily carer” system (27 carers for 135 children) and the purchase of reservations in non-public nursery schools. At the present we provide nursery care to nearly 6500 of the youngest Varsovians. This represents a twofold increase compared with 2006. Over the last ten years, 26 nursery schools, including 10 mini-schools, have been opened in the capital city. By 2018, with the addition of 15 nursery schools, 2300 places will have been provided.

These are four facilities in Białołęka, two in Bemowo, two in Ursynów, and one in Wawer, Bielany, Wola, Targówek, Mokotów, Praga-Południe, Żoliborz, Wesoła and Ursus. Some of these projects will be completed in 2017.
