My child is sick. Can it go to the childcare center?

Getting together in groups increases the risk of disease. Some childhood diseases are more likely to occur in children who are together in a group than in children who do not attend a daycare center. In addition, sick children are always best off at home: your child cannot get the attention it needs at the location without this being at the expense of the entire group. In the event of an infectious disease, employees also want to prevent other children from becoming infected. Our policy is therefore that if your child is ill, you cannot bring it to the childcare center.

KinderRijk’s policy is therefore that if your child is ill, you cannot bring it to childcare. If your child goes to daycare or toddler care, we prefer to hear this before 9.30 am. For after-school care, if your child is ill, we request that you notify us as soon as possible and in any case on the day itself before 11 am.

You can easily report that your child is ill via the KinderRijk parent app/web portal. And if you do this before 6:30 pm the day before, the absence will automatically be converted into points. These points can be used to request an extra day to compensate for the absence. Points are only accrued if you, as a parent, register the cancellation yourself in the parent app/web portal.
