The parental contribution is calculated based on the applicable income rate. To make this possible, parents provide Kids & Co with the kind-attest (child certificate) before the start of childcare. Lunch and snacks are included, diapers are not (parents are asked to bring these). For care on Saturday mornings, the number of care hours is limited to a maximum of 3 hours, which means that 60 % of the individual income rate applies.

VZW Kids & Co receives IKT subsidies for all of the 68 places. Kids & Co uses a lower child ratio than prescribed by regulations. To compensate for the resulting underfunding by the Flemish government, we offer the opportunity to invest in the infrastructure and operating costs of childcare through co-financing. For full-time care, the co-financing amounts to EUR 50 per month, for care for 4 or 3 days per week, the co-financing amounts to EUR 40 and 30 per month respectively. Companies or self-employed persons can deduct these investments in infrastructure and operating costs as business expenses under certain conditions.

More information can be found in our Internal Regulations.
