Parent educator

The parent educator project is a measure for promoting demographic and pro-natalist politics. Starting from 8 September 2016, the City has been providing monthly monetary support in the amount of the gross earnings in the economy of the City of Zagreb for parent educators. At the moment, only City of Zagreb in Republic of Croatia is providing such measure for its citizens under certain conditions.
One of the parents, who cares for at least three children, is entitled to monetary support, if the youngest child has not started school yet. The monthly monetary support for a parent educator is equal to the 65 % of the amount of the average gross earnings in the economy of the City of Zagreb. By December 2018, more than 3,900 applicants have been approved for parent educator funding. On average, allowance for the 50 new users is approved every month. When it introduced the financing of parent educators, the City showed that it continuously implements pro-natalist politics, as this is only one among a number of measures aimed at halting negative demographic trends.
