Denmark is besotted with problems of an abysmal low birth rate and making babies is a priority for the parents – the birth rate was 185th in the world in 2011 in which year, there were 4400 less births in the country as compared to 2010.
The government is, therefore, working out incentive schemes to ensure that parents devote more time to make babies.
With this in mind, Seven KG-schools would be involved in the scheme of offering two free hours of childcare so that parents can utilize the free time to go ahead and do it.
The Grasshoppers kindergarten in north Fyn, located six miles from Odense, is hopeful that the scheme would be productive and help bridge the gap in births.
