What is childcare allowance?
The playgroup falls under the Wet Kinderopvang (Childcare Act). If you meet the conditions, you are entitled to Childcare Allowance, a contribution towards the costs. The most important conditions are that you:
- are married or cohabiting and you both work at least 5 hours a week, independently or in employment.
- or that you are a single parent and work at least 5 hours a week, independently or in employment.
Pay attention! Does your child go to playgroup? In the hour calculation for the childcare allowance, use 40 weeks .
When is a subsidy from the municipality applicable?
If you are not entitled to Childcare Allowance, the municipality will pay for a place in a playgroup by means of a subsidy. The only exception to this is the Gouden Poort playgroup in Leiden.
The rates differ per county and type of playgroup / day care. Please take a look at the Dutch page with the rates divided per county.
