What are the private day care options in Copenhagen?

You have three different options for private day care in Copenhagen if you have a registered address in Copenhagen.

Your child can be looked after in either:

1. Private day care run by a parent (privat dagpleje)

In private day care run by a parent, the person looks after his or her own child plus another child, or his or her own two children in their own home.

2. Private child care run by a child-minder (privat børnepasning)

In private day care run by a child-minder, the person only looks after other people’s children. The childcare can be located in the home of the parents or the child-minder, or in business premises.

3. Private child care institutions

Private institutions can be nurseries and kindergartens and are run privately. You need to contact them directly to get a place.

The cost of a place in a private institution varies. The individual institution sets the price and collects it directly. You can apply for a free place subsidy, and you are automatically entitled to a sibling discount if you have more than one child. Contact the individual institution to find out how much it costs.
