The DP stands for policies in the interest of people. We want considerably more for all the citizens of our country:
- considerably more spending power for the middle classes through a socially fair tax reform.
- considerably more time for families through a flexible and financially more attractive parental leave scheme.
- considerably more quality in childcare and school infrastructures through individual valorisation of each child.
CONSIDERABLY MORE SPENDING POWER
(DÄITLECH MÉI KAFKRAAFT)
The tax reform takes effect from 1st January 2017. Especially the middle classes will have more of the monthly salary at their disposal. Moreover, single parents are being considerably relieved in order to minimise their risk of slipping into poverty. Considerably more also applies to the home by additional support to access homeownership.

CONSIDERABLY MORE TIME FOR MY FAMILY
(DÄITLECH MÉI ZÄIT FIR MENG FAMILL)
The new parental leave scheme is applicable from 1st December 2016. This means more flexibility and more time for families. The new parental leave can for instance be taken for one day a week only. This will allow more mothers as well as fathers to benefit from this type of leave. At the same time, taking parental leave will be financially more attractive.

CONSIDERABLY MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUR CHILDREN
(DÄITLECH MÉI CHANCË FIR EIS KANNER)
This autumn quality standards have been introduced for nurseries, requiring a pedagogic concept for each crèche and childcare centre. We want children not merely to be taken care of, but they need active stimulation. From autumn 2017 onwards, a free and multilingual childcare will also be offered, with the Luxembourgish language playing an important role. Tailor-made assistance of each pupil is also a priority at school: we need different schools for different students. At the same time, additional staff will translate into improved support for children with learning difficulties.
