The municipality provides a € 100/month per child subsidy for families that choose to send their child to a private kindergarten.
Prices range from € 165 – € 420/month.

The majority of pre-school educational institutions in Vilnius are municipally funded. Pre-school (nursery and kindergarten) education in public and municipality kindergartens receives partial public funding amounting to 4 hours per day or 20 hours per week.

To register a child in a pre-school institution, you should first fill out an application. You can usually fill out an application online or submit your application in person to the kindergarten.

Private kindergartens will accept admissions all year round, so you’ll not need to wait to enroll for the new semester in September. Every kindergarten has its own rules regarding how long it is open each day – some kindergartens will provide full day supervision, some half day, while others may only work certain days during the week. So, you’ll need to check in advance. The cost of private kindergartens varies from € 165 – € 420/month. Vilnius Municipality provides a € 100/month per child subsidy for families that choose to send their child to a private kindergarten.

To qualify, you need to provide a declaration of residence proving that at least one parent is a resident of the municipality.
