Non-formal education of children is a supplement to the formal education system in Lithuania. After school hours, pupils can freely choose various non-formal education activities which are provided in general schools. Most of these activities are free of charge or paid from the pupil‘s educational voucher which was established in 2015.
Pupils can also attend classes at various non-formal education schools, such as sports, music, fine arts or art schools, leisure centers or children’s clubs. Classes are partially subsidized and fees are determined by the founder.
Starting from 2021, special non-formal STEAM initiative has been launched for children to be ableto participate in various activities related to STEAM disciplines.
