Our
Parent
portal

At De Kleine Wereld , our parents make use our digital DKW parent portal. 'In our parent portal, we enable parents to keep up to date with developments at Childcare and within the organization'

The parent portal can be accessed through the browser as well as through the DKW parent app, and allows parents to communicate directly with the Childcare in a user-friendly way.

This allows parents and/or caregivers to stay up to date on their child's experiences through photos/videos, messages and diary reports. The parent app also provides insight into the agenda and the possibility to easily request extra days, and important information such as newsletters and messages from the organization and Locations.

Our

Our rates are "inclusive" so you won't incur additional costs. You can think of diapers, bottle feeding, (hot) meals, fresh fruit, dairy and healthy snacks. Trips, homework help and dance classes are also included in the rate.

Applying for childcare allowance is a personal responsibility that must be applied for by both or one of the parents through the tax authorities. De Kleine Wereld is not responsible for this.

If you decide to choose Childcare or Extracurricular Childcare you can apply for childcare allowance from the tax authorities. Childcare allowance is an allowance for parents to cover the costs of childcare. The amount of this allowance is based on your combined gross income and the number of children in your family that use childcare.

To qualify for child care, there are a number of conditions:

- Resident children are registered at the residential address of the parent(s)

- You as a parent or your allowance partner pay the cost of the Childcare
