The educational package includes

Culture and sports:
No child should be excluded from recreational activities. Instead, they should be able to participate in sports, games, and cultures. Club membership fees can be covered up to a limit of €10 a month.

School supplies:
So that all children have access to the learning materials they need, we offer to pay a subsidy twice a year, €70 at the beginning of the year and €30 for the second half of the school year, a total of €100.

School transport:
Those who attend a secondary school often have a longer journey. If transport costs are incurred and are not otherwise covered, we can refund these costs.

Learning support:
Children can make use of learning support if that is the only way to achieve their learning goal (such as sufficient grades to move up into the next class). This is provided that the school can confirm the need for learning support and no comparative service is provided by the school itself.

Lunch at day care centres, schools, and after school care centre:
Lunch provision costs are subsidised if the day care centre, school or after school care centre provides meals. The remaining contribution parents must make only amounts to €1 a day.

Day trips and class excursions:
School and day care centre day trips are also financed. Costs for longer excursions over several days are subsequently reimbursed as before.
