At the beginning of the next school year, a large portion of the music, theater and dance lessons will be free A bill in this regard was approved by the MPs on Tuesday.


By this concept, we mean structures like relay houses, day centers, mini-nurseries and parental assistants. So the reception of children there will be free from the beginning of the school year in September 2022, “for children enrolled in basic education, from compulsory schools”, the ministry’s press release noted. However, it is not for young children or enrolling in elementary education.

School week is free

This free admission class will apply weekly, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. “Outside of this time slot, the Reception Service Check (CSA) scale will be applied to calculate parent and state financial participation. During the school holiday weeks, parents’ financial participation will no longer be limited by the flat rate, but the scale of the reception service check will apply, ”the ministry explained.

“By guaranteeing access to formal and non-formal education, we are creating full-time school and educational offers in Luxembourg that are, during the school period, free from the next school year,” added Minister Claude Meisch. (DP).

The canteen also becomes free

In addition to this free non-formal education during school hours, deputies recorded “free lunches during school week, in the framework of education and reception”, which was postponed last December.

“During the holidays, free meals are reserved for families earning less than double the minimum social wage. For other families, the scale of the reception service check applies, ”concludes the ministry’s press release.
