Before and After School childcare
From January 2019 we will no longer be providing on site out-of-school clubs for parents who need to find a solution for their children before or after school.
Whilst we have been working in cooperation with Devi Kids, there are various professional childcare organisations in Breda, some of which provide care in English (such as Kids Company and Kober). Details of out-of-school childcare can be found by using the term ‘English Daycare (or out of school) in Breda’ in your search engine.
The advantage of outsourcing this service is that parents may choose to extend the hours beyond those previously offered by the ISB. Out-of-school-care in most cases run from 07:00 in the morning and until 19:00 in the evening. Furthermore, most organisations will also offer child care from 07:00 to 19:00 throughout the school year offering working parents a solution for childcare on In-service Teacher Training Days and school holidays.
A further benefit to parents is that by using childcare provided by a dedicated childcare organisation such as Kids Company, Kober or Devi Kids, it may be possible to apply for tax relief on these costs. Parents working (or studying) in the Netherlands are entitled to a childcare allowance (kinderopvangtoeslag) for children under 12. This is a contribution to the cost of childcare, whether for a childcare centre, out-of-school care or a private childminder (gastouder). The allowance can reduce childcare costs up to a maximum of 94%, depending on income and number of children. Contact the tax office for details:
