Bureau Offers Subsidies for Kindergarten Students
Shenzhen kindergarten families can now apply for a 1,500 yuan subsidy per student a year. The plan was announced by the Shenzhen Municipal Education Bureau during the online application period which starts today. Kindergarteners ages 3 to 6 will benefit from the subsidies through the children’s growth program introduced by the municipal government.
The city municipal government has been offering these funds since the second semester of 2012, and families of these kindergarteners that hold Shenzhen hukou, and those without but in compliance with the population administration policy are eligible for the offered subsidy by applying online. Subsidies includes a 1,300 yuan allowance that is intended to offset tuition costs plus a 200 yuan allowance that will be used equally by kindergartens for health checks, books, and other school supplies.
Application guidelines are available in local kindergartens found at lower level district education bureaus and on official websites.
