Childcare allowance

From January 1, 2024, working parents will receive a higher childcare allowance for each child than in 2023. The amount of the increase depends on the joint income of a family.

The Childcare Act regulates the quality and funding of childcare. The starting point for
funding is that childcare is a matter of parents and government. Parents who work or study
and combine this with care for children receive a subsidy from the government. How much
depends on your income, the hours worked and the number of children you receive and can be up to 80% of the costs of childcare. At the tax office you can find more information on
childcare allowances:

What does childcare or after-school care cost at day nursery 't Knuffeltje?

The Dutch government will (partially) pay for day-care and after school care withthis link: https://www.belastingdienst.nl/rekenhulpen/toeslagen you can easily and quickly make a test calculation to get an indication of the net cost of childcare at ‘t Knuffeltje.

Maximum reimbursement rates

The maximum hourly rate for daycare to which the surcharge percentages apply is € 10.25.
The maximum hourly rate for out-of-school care to which the allowance percentages apply is € 9.12.

Provision rates and income classes

Another reason why the childcare allowance is higher in 2017 is the increase in childcare allowance rates. The fixed footage (the percentage that parents always receive childcare allowance) rises from 23.8% to 33.3%.
In addition, income classes in the childcare allowance table are increased.

Easily calculate your net costs

The actual net benefit, for you as a parent, depends on, the number of children using child care (more children means more support), your family’s combined income (combined net income), and the number of hours of childcare you receive. You can easily calculate your net costs using a tax assessment of the Tax Administration: https://www.belastingdienst.nl/rekenhulpen/toeslagen.

When will you be entitled to childcare allowance in 2024?

  • The care of your child or children takes place at a registered children’s residence or registered guest parent (‘t Knuffeltje is recognized by the government).
  • Your child goes to registered childcare. This includes the registered daycare and the extracurricular shelter.
  •  Childcare allowance is allowed per child up to 230 hours per month.
  • Your right to childcare allowance depends on the number of hours you and your partner work and your joint income. Even if you study, follow a course to get to work, or follow a mandatory integration course, you are entitled to childcare allowance.

6 months right to surcharge on resignation

Unemployed parents do not immediately lose their right to childcare allowance. Also in 2024, parents who lost their jobs will be entitled to childcare benefits for another 6 months. As a result, parents have the time to apply and have their children benefit from the continuity of childcare.
