What is the difference between a guarantee list and a specific waiting list?

Registering your child on a guarantee list means that your child is guaranteed a place in a nursery or a day care within 2 months. Registering your child on a specific waiting list means that you get to choose a specific nursery or day care, but it is uncertain how long you need to wait before a place is available.

Who is not eligible to be registered on a guarantee list?

If your child is already enrolled in public childcare, he or she cannot be placed on a guarantee list unless you move more than 4 kilometres away from your previous home within the municipality of Copenhagen.

Children who do not live within the municipality of Copenhagen cannot be placed on the guarantee list.
