Childcare costs

What kinds of provisions are there in the Netherlands?

Childcare in the Netherlands and tax benefits

In the Netherlands, it is a good idea to sign your child up for childcare as early as possible, even before the child is born. As a resident of the Netherlands, you are likely to be entitled to a childcare allowance, a governmental contribution towards covering some of your childcare costs.

For more information about childcare allowances, please go to the page on tax benefits on the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration website.
