Less parental payment and higher municipal subsidies

Parental payments accounted for 19 per cent of gross operating expenditures in private kindergartens in 2010, compared to 20 per cent in 2009. This follows the trend from last year whereby state and municipal subsidies account for an increasing share of kindergartens’ revenues. State subsidies accounted for 60 per cent of gross operating expenditures, whereas municipal subsidies accounted for 23 per cent in 2010.
