Day parents provide care for children in private homes.

  • They work on weekdays only. The length of time children stay with them can vary, but never exceeds nine hours at a time.
  • Most children in care with day parents are aged 1-3 years, but younger or older children may also be placed with day parents.
  • The services of day parents must be paid for. Day parents are private operators and usually decide their own rates.
  • If the day parent is licensed to operate by the municipal authorities, these authorities pay part of the cost.
  • Information on day parents is available from the offices of the municipal authorities.
