Final authorisation for Puerto infants’ school
The Ministry of Education and Universities of the Government of the Canary Islands has given the final authorisation to the Jacaranda Infant School, located in La Vera, which until now has been operating with a provisional authorisation.
“The recent regulations state that preschools must have authorisation from the edu-cation authority and this has meant that we have had to adapt services, property and staff to legal requirements, in addition to signing agreements with the Ministry of Education and Universities to keep it open with all the guarantees, “explained social services councillor, Víctor Manuel Cabo.
In order to continue provi-ding this public service, while the conversion was taking place, it was decided to give the council a provisional au-thorization.
The school serves 49 children between the ages of one and three.
Puerto’s Mayor, Lope Afonso said: “The firm commitment of this Government to improve municipal services in areas as sensitive as Social Services has paid off.”
