What are my options for child care when my children are younger than 6 years old?

Until your child is 6 years it can go to nursery, day care, kindergarten ( or private day care, private child care or private institutions).

Your child can be looked after in a nursery (vuggestue) or a day care (dagpleje) run by the municipality if the child is aged between 6 months and 2 years and 10 months.

Your child can be looked after in a kindergarten (børnehave) if the child is aged between 2 years and 10 months and 6 years.

Below you’ll find more information about signing your child up for municipal day care offers.
