Information regarding part-time and full-time daycare
How does part-time daycare work?
If you choose a part-time daycare offer, you have to submit a timetable to the relevant daycare institution with the hours you would like daycare for. You must inform the daycare institution of your child’s arrival and departure times at the institution with at least one month's notice and you must set up a timetable that spans two weeks.
By March 1st, you must have submitted a daycare timetable for April 1st to April 15th and one by March 15th at the latest, for a daycare timetable spanning April 16th to April 30th.
The daycare institution plans staff working hours according to when the children are present. Therefore, it is important that you adhere to the agreed daycare arrival and departure times.
You have the option of allocating the hours into a two-week framework so e.g. you can use up 20 hours one week and 40 hours the week after. You can set the times as you wish, as long as they are within the daycare institution’s opening hours.
For example, a timetable could look like this:
• Week 1 (20 hours)
o Monday and Tuesday: 8.00am - 1pm
o Wednesday: fixed day off
o Thursday and Friday: 8.00am - 1pm
• Week 2 (40 hours)
o Monday to Wednesday: 8.00am - 4pm
o Thursday: 8.00am - 5pm
o Friday: 8.00am - 3pm
The arrival and departure times are the times during which you are in the daycare institution. This means that the time you spend in the daycare institution with your child during drop-off and pick-up also counts.
Can I save up hours from holiday or public holidays?
You cannot save hours up if you keep your child at home on a day when your child should have been in daycare, according to the timetable.
Also, you cannot save up hours when your child is on holiday, if your child is sick, if there are public holidays or the institution is closed because of holidays.
How does full-time daycare work?
If you choose full-time daycare, you are not obliged to submit a timetable to the relevant daycare institution. But, it helps us when planning staff hours so it's a big help if you do decide to submit one.
You can set the times as you wish, as long as they are within the daycare institution’s opening hours.
How do I change my daycare hours?
If you are waiting for a daycare offer and wants to change the hours in which you require daycare:
Then you must log on to the Digital Childcare Place Allocation application (Digital Pladsanvisning) using your NemID and change the hours in which you require daycare.
If your child is already in daycare:
Then you must contact your daycare institution. You can always change your daycare hours with 2 months notice before the 15th or the last day of the month.
