Childcare allowance

Do you and your partner both work and does your child attend childcare, after-school care or preschool? You may be eligible for childcare allowance from the government. This also applies if you are a single working parent, taking a training or mandatory integration course or a pathway that increases your chances of employment. The amount of childcare allowance you are entitled to depends on your income, the type of care and the number of hours you take.

Childcare-allowance level

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.

Childcare-allowance

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 pre-school care is €9.12 and for after-school care it is €7.85. The difference between the maximum hourly rate set by the government and the hourly rate of KinderRijk is for your own account.

You can receive a reimbursement up to a maximum of 230 childcare hours per month and per child. This maximum will apply from 2023 for everyone entitled to a childcare allowance, irrespective of the number of hours you work or whether you work or study, for example.
