You might wish to have your child cared for in a municipality other than the one in which you live. If the municipality in question admits children from other municipalities, this may well be possible.

If your child has a place outside Aarhus, we offer a subsidy. You must then pay the difference between the subsidy and the gross operating expenses for the place occupied by your child.

Gross operating expenses represent the amount it costs the municipality to operate the childcare place. If the price in the childcare facility’s municipality is higher than in Aarhus, you will therefore have to pay more for a place in Aarhus.
