Benidorm City Council has approved the first remittance for the acquisition of school supplies for the 2nd cycle of Early Childhood Education, corresponding to minors born in 2016 and 2017 who already had this benefit last year 2020/2021. The mayor of Education, Maite Moreno, has reported that "this remittance includes 638 beneficiaries, 92 more than the previous year, and amounts to 39,556 euros, which represents an increase of just over 5,700 euros compared to 2020".
Moreno explained that "for the second consecutive year, the Department has made this first remittance ex officio with all the beneficiaries who already had this grant the previous year and that in 2021/2022 they will continue to attend the 2nd cycle of Early Childhood Education." To the initial remittance “others will soon be added with the requests that are received, and that will correspond mainly to the students who join this course as a 3-year-old infant, the minors born in 2018, as well as the boys and girls of 2nd cycle that did not request a grant in previous courses ”.
The person in charge of Education has recalled that the application period for grants is open until September 20, and to access the call, the family unit must be registered in Benidorm before March 9, 2021.
