Abstrakt: This thesis aims to identify socioeconomic determinants of the availability of places
in kindergartens in the Czech Republic which is for the purpose of this thesis expressed as
the percentage of rejected kindergarten applications. Additionally, district-level characteristics
related to the perceived shortage of places in kindergartens for children from distinct age groups,
which indicates whether a child has a legal right to attend a kindergarten and whether pre-primary
education is compulsory for them, are inspected. A balanced panel dataset of 76 Czech districts
and the Capital City of Prague for the school years 2017/2018, 2018/2019, and 2019/2020 is
analysed utilizing panel data estimation methods. The results suggest that an increase in the male
unemployment rate and the growth of the average monthly wage correspond to the deterioration
of the availability of places in kindergartens. The results are similar for children aged three to four
years. On the contrary, the results are substantially different for children from other age groups
and imply that an increase in the percentage of the urban population is associated with a lower
percentage of rejected kindergarten applications. The population density, the net migration,
the percentage of foreigners in the population, the share of young children in the population, and
the number of newborn children lagged by three years are other district-level characteristics related
to the share of rejected kindergarten applications.
