Hungary now has chreches in over 1,000 localities, in three times more than a decade ago, Hungarian President Katalin Novak said in Hernádnémeti, in northeast Hungary, on Thursday.
Inaugurating a new creche in the village, Novák said the 290 million forint (EUR 720,000) investment was a sign “of our trust and belief in the future, and that we build for the children of the future.” Hungary’s education system currently offers four types of creches for children under the age of three, she said.
Hernádnémeti’s independent mayor, Zsolt Orosz, said that the 700sqm creche was built with 274 million forints of domestic funding, with the local authority contributing 15 million forints of its own resources. The creche will provide for 48 small children, he said.
President Novák visited the Hungarian soldiers serving in Kosovo yesterday. She started the day with a run and even played foosball with the soldiers. She also met with her Kosovo counterpart, Vjosa Osmani.
