Babies and toddlers need care. They also need different kinds of stimulation and encouragement to help them develop properly. It isn’t always possible for a member of the family to fulfil these important roles.
Many municipalities have crèches or day-care centres/nurseries for children up to the age of four. Babies and toddlers are cared for and educated by qualified carers. Parents can generally choose whether they take their children to the crèche every day, occasionally, or for half days only.
Children can also be cared for by a childminder or within a family day care setting. These look after your child for a full day, half day, or on an hourly basis. Please contact the childcare organisation KJBE for more information.
