Next month I m going in Kaunas for ERASMUS program. But it's hard for me to find the apartment where we 4 person can live. They stated 240€/month, so we 4 have to pay total 240€/month or every single person have to pay €240 each / month. I m really confused

Every (or close to that) preschooler has access to public kindergarten. Monthly cost is about 55 euros.
Every kid age 6-16 has access to primary/high school. No exceptions here, as school is mandatory till age 16. The annual cost is 0 (zero) euros, it's already paid by local municipality.
