The federal government will support the federal states in the next two years with almost 3.9 billion euros in financing their day-care centers.
The Federal Council approved the so-called Kita Quality Act of the traffic light coalition. It follows on from the so-called Good Daycare Act of the previous government, through which the federal government had also made money available.
In order to accommodate the countries, the traffic light had recently made changes. For example, the federal government will continue to finance the "Language Kitas" funding program until the summer of 2023, contrary to what was initially planned. After that, the countries should take over according to the will of the government. The federal funding was originally supposed to expire at the end of the year - which had annoyed many countries.
