The latest school canteen grants for the Valencian Community aim to help guarantee free education for all children.

Spain’s Ministry of Education  will allocate two million euros more, up to €75.4 million in school canteen grants next year and another almost 30 percent more, up to €77.5 million, in financial aid for the Bono Infantil and schooling for children from 0 to 3 years old in the Valencia Community, as reported by Informacion.

In the case of aid for the youngest children, which is €16.5 million more than in the current academic year, Councillor Tamarit specifies that the aim is to “guarantee free education in the 2 to 3 age group for all families, regardless of whether they choose a private nursery school, a municipal nursery school or a public school for their children, while maintaining the same level of aid for pupils from 0 to 2 years of age”.

The deadline for applying for the canteen grant is July 6 and families of ” 0-3 year olds enrolled in private nursery schools, and 0-1 and 1-2 year olds enrolled in municipal nursery schools for the next academic year 2022-2023, must apply for the grant online from Thursday June 9 until Tuesday June 28.”

The grants are between 200 and 70 euros per month for 0 to 1 year olds and between 120 and 70 euros per month for 1 to 2 year olds.
