Every child is entitled to childcare if their parent or guardian is working, studying or a job seeker and registered with the social security bureau (FPA). A fee is charged for child care services. The fees are based on the size of your family and your income. Please submit your application for a place four months before your child will need the place. Applications may be submitted all year, preferably well before the start of term. The application period is about two weeks if you are in employment and four months for job seekers. Contact your municipality for more information.
