Day Care

All children between the age of 0-2 years old have the right to Day Care.

If you wish to have a day care for your children, you must contact "Pladsanvisningen" and register your child for a day care place. We recommend that you contact Pladsanvisningen as soon as possible as there might be waiting lists for certain institutions. You can apply for a day care place immediately after having your child and at least 2 months before you need a place in the daycare.

If you have a nem-id, you are able to sign your children up for daycare online. However, please note that the website is only available in Danish. If you are unable to use the online solution, please call the municipality at +45 7233 3333 and ask for Pladsanvisningen.
