From now on, young Varsovians benefit from new municipal nurseries in Bielany and Ursus. Over 300 children are provided with free care in two modern facilities. Warsaw is the first city in Poland to introduce a free nursery care program.
We do everything to ensure that the youngest residents of the capital have their own place - friendly and supportive of their development, and parents can develop professionally. In February 2019, at the request of the Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski, the Council of Warsaw Capital City agreed to one hundred percent financing of nursery care. Since then, in all municipal and non-public nurseries subsidized by the city, care for children is free, the parent pays only for feeding the child – said Aldona Machnowska-Góra, Deputy Mayor of Warsaw Capital City.
