PARENTS waiting for municipal nursery school places for children born in the Costa Blanca resort between 2017 and 2019 will receive financial help. They are in line for the Benibono, a grant of up to €120 a month that was included in the Partido Popular’s campaign during the local elections held earlier this year.
“Benidorm’s municipal offer for infant education is well above the national average,” said the town hall’s education councillor Maite Moreno.
“Ninety-five per cent of the under-threes whose parents sought places, obtained them,” she added. The Benibono grants will contribute to the cost of authorised private nurseries for the remaining 5 per cent, the councillor said. To be eligible the family should have been registered on the Benidorm Padron for at least a year, have their names down on a municipal waiting list and be up-to-date with their taxes. There should be no available place in one of the municipal nursery schools and the child should be attending an authorised centre. The grant will be proportionate to the family income, ranging from €60 to €120 a month, and with a maximum payment of €1,100 a year.
