On October 25, 2022 a joint press conference was given at the “Aliathon Hotel” in Paphos, by the Deputy Director-General of the Deputy Ministry of Social Welfare, Ms. Marina Ioannou-Hasapi and the Assistant Director-General of the Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the EC, Ms. Andriana Sukova, for the “Tuition Subsidy and Feeding Scheme for Children up to 4 years old”.

The Scheme aims to ensure the necessary services and equal opportunities for all children from an early age, without discrimination, so that they develop smoothly and fairly and, at the same time, facilitate the integration of parents into the labour market and, therefore, the strengthening of the institution of the family. 

The implementation of the Scheme will have multiple benefits. Indicatively, it supports the wider demographic policy of the State, and will contribute to reducing the risk of poverty and social exclusion, especially for children.

The Scheme will facilitate access for all children to quality pre-primary education programmes and ensure adequate levels of pre-primary care and education in order to increase the percentage of children attending quality day-care and education facilities.

The implementation of the Scheme reinforces the effort to increase the options for free or low-cost early childhood education and care, which disproportionately burden the family budget, especially for low- and middle-income families.

The Scheme, with a total budget of €27 mil., is co-funded by the EU within the framework of the Cohesion Policy Programme “THALIA2021-2027”.
