Hungary now has crèches in over 1,000 localities — three times more than a decade ago — Hungarian President Katalin Novák said in Hernádnémeti, in north-east Hungary. Inaugurating a new crèche in the village on Thursday, Novák said the 290 million forint (EUR 720,000) investment was a sign “of our trust and belief in the future, and that we build for the children of the future.” Hungary’s education system currently offers four types of crèches for children under the age of three, she said. Hernádnémeti’s independent mayor, Zsolt Orosz, said that the 700sqm crèche was built with a budget of 274 million forints, with the local authority contributing 15 million forints of its own resources. The crèche will provide for 48 small children, he said.
