Around 85 nurseries and day-care centres in the Danish capital are to be involved in a government programme to mix Danish and immigrant children from an early age. Diversity in Copenhagens Daycare Centres aims to counteract the ethnic polarization in the citys nurseries by introducing a voluntary quota of places for bilingual or non-Danish children in centres where Danes are over-represented. Likewise the 21 centres where bilingual children are in the majority will be encouraged to attract more Danes, by developing more outdoor and ecology-based activities for example. The Diversity scheme has a budget of DKK6.6 million.
