The amount of the childcare allowance depends on your income. The allowance table of the Central Government shows what percentage of childcare allowance you are entitled to based on your (joint) income. You can also make a preliminary test calculation.
The calculation of the childcare allowance is made on the basis of the maximum hourly rate set by the government. From 1 January 2023, the maximum hourly rate for day care and preschool is €9.12 and from 1 January 2024 € 9.65. From 1 January 2023 the maximum hourly rate for after-school care is €7.85 and from 1 January 2024 € 8.30. The difference between the maximum hourly rate set by the government and the hourly rate of KinderRijk is for your own account.
Parliament has passed an amendment to effect an additional increase in the government’s maximum hourly rates in 2024.
You can receive a reimbursement up to a maximum of 230 childcare hours per month and per child. Irrespective of the number of hours you work or whether you work or study, for example.
