In Denmark, it is common practice that both parents work. Thus, the children are often in child care facilities until they attend school.
The municipality is legally obliged to allocate places in an age-appropriate child care facility to all children from the age of 26 weeks to school starting age.
The office assigning day care, Pladsanvisningen, has a self-service solution that you can use to register your child for care or withdraw it from care.
You can apply for a grant for children attending child care centers or childminders. It is also possible to get a family discount.
