This is what is in the education package

Culture, sports, participation:

No child should be excluded from leisure activities, but should be able to participate in sports, games or culture. Even offers for the very young are covered by contributions of 15,- per month max. 180,- per year.

School supplies:

To ensure that all children are equipped with the necessary learning materials, a subsidy is transferred to them twice a year - 116,- Euro at the beginning of the school year and 58,- Euro at the second half of the year.

Pupil transport:

Particularly those who attend a secondary school often have a long way to go to school. If the transport costs are necessary and are not covered elsewhere, these expenses are reimbursed.

Learning support:

Pupils can take advantage of learning support if this is the only way to achieve the learning goal - usually promotion to the next grade. The prerequisite is that the school confirms the need and that there are no comparable school offers.

Lunch in day-care centres, schools and after-school care centres:

If a day-care centre, school or after-school care centre offers such a service, the costs for lunch are covered in full without co-payment.

Lunch at a day-care centre, school or after-school care centre is covered in full without co-payment.

Day trips and school trips:
