I have a low income. Can I get a contribution towards the costs of a playgroup, toddler care or after-school care?
If you have a low income (and, in the case of toddler care or out-of-school care, you do not qualify for a childcare allowance), you can apply for special assistance from your municipality. The amount of this allowance depends on your income and assets.
In the municipality of Leiden you can here apply for special assistance.
In the Bollenstreek you can here apply for special assistance.
Whether you are eligible for a subsidized place depends on whether you are on benefits or whether you are a one- or two-earner.
If you are not working and you are on benefits or if you are a single earner, it is possible to get a subsidized position. This applies to all our playgroups in Leiden, Lisse and Noordwijk.
If you are a dual earner, you are eligible for childcare allowance and you can not get a subsidized place.
Only toddler care center Gouden Poort in Leiden has no subsidized places; parents who are entitled to childcare allowance can purchase a place for their child (ren) here.
You can check whether you are entitled to childcare allowance on the website of the tax authorities .
