If you need childcare, your children can be well looked after in a safe and stimulating environment.
The childcare system for children aged 0 to 5 years (preschool) is highly prioritised in Denmark, as both parents usually work. This means that your child can be well looked after in a safe and stimulating environment, while you concentrate on your work.
The majority of childcare programmes are located in institutions you sign up for. Your local municipality manages the childcare programmes and the price varies.
The prices for enrolling children between 0 to 3 years in a public nursery was DKK 3.900 (approx. 520 Euros) per month including meals, kindergartens often cost less.
Of course, you may also choose a childcare provider in a private home. It is possible to advertise for a private childcare provider in the local newspaper. The price of such care depends on whether the municipality has an agreement with the childcare provider.
