Why was the project undertaken?

At the time of preparation of the project in Rybnik, there was no public nursery functioning. However, there were 6 day care facilities in place, launched already in the framework of the Human Capital Operational Program in the previous period of programming with the EU support. These spots have proven to be an alternative form of care for children up to 3 years of age. The reviews from parents who use such forms were very positive. Intimate terms, atmosphere close to home and easy and good contact with the nurse are the basic qualities of the spots. Thereby, basing on experience and a continuous deficit for places of care for young children and the reported needs of parents, the concept of the application for a project with an objective to launch the next 4 spots of daycare emerged.

What has been achieved?

In the framework of the project, launch and equipment of 4 spots of daycare were planned, which has subsequently been implemented. The project also assumed financing of the current operation in the 12 months by taking care of 16 children. Facilities, periodically having regard to the requirements of the act on child care up to the age of 3, provided care over a group of more than 30 children. This confirms the high level of interest in such form of care for young children.

Who uses/benefits from the effects of the project?

The services of a day-care guardian constitute a benefit to parents who recommence work after the break connected with the birth of a child, i.e. after maternity leave/parental leave, workers and the unemployed, single parents with children under 3 years, and those who, by reason of the need to take care of a child up to 3 years of age remain outside of the labour market. All the above specified people are the inhabitants of Rybnik.

What are the main benefits of the project?

The primary benefit of the project is the occupational activation of parents of children up to 3 years of age, who, prior to the provision of care services in the form of spots, missed alternative childcare, resulting in the frequently experienced lack of opportunities to return to work. Flexible working hours of daily guardians enable arranging of the working time and adjusting care to the professional duties of parents. A small group of children at the spot of care is conducive to their faster adaptation to the new conditions. Apart from that the city, by providing parents with small children with the additional possibility, received a positive opinion, as caring for its residents. The issue of providing alternatives to institutional care is also of significance, as the spots work in places friendly to young children, in conditions close to home.
