The settling-in period is mandatory. Two weeks before the child care contract starts, parents must accompany their child to the day care center for the settling-in period. It is important/supposed that parents are available during the whole settling-in period.

Child Care Contract

The childcare contract specifies how many days per week the child will attend the child care center. These days are invoiced monthly and result in a fixed monthly charge which is payable monthly in advance.

The child’s day care place can be canceled by either party within a three months’ notice at the end of the calendar month.
