Union: Kitas threatened with overload
Hannover (dpa/lni) – The Verdi union warns that child care centers in Lower Saxony will be overwhelmed in view of a planned crisis regulation for the admission of Ukrainian children. Children who have run away must be given the best possible support. However, due to numerous corona infections, hardly any daycare centers are operating normally, the union said.
“The screw of the load must not be tightened any more, certainly not for several months, otherwise it will be overloaded and the opposite will be achieved: strength will be lost or even the most urgently needed specialists will leave the profession,” Verdi said. Country. coach Detlef Ahting.
Education Minister Grant Hendrik Tonne (SPD) had announced in the state parliament that he would suspend “a number of standards” in the nursery area by July 31. One more child per group is allowed, minimum areas can be lowered and operating permits for the opening of new facilities are simplified. A rapid deployment of Ukrainian specialists is also planned.
