Tilburg daycare and nursery 2016
As of January 1, 2016 there will be some changes to the childcare organizations. The changes are both for nurseries, playgroups and childminders in Tilburg. A number of changes were already announced in late 2014 and now for 2016 some changes take effect. Unikids 2.0 Daycare has been trying for you to summarize what the main changes are from the government and what will change for you at the nursery of Unikids 2.0 Daycare.
Want to know more about the changes from the government then we have some interesting news items posted here. Unfortunately, we still cannot find the English translations Childcare allowance rises, Daycare and nurseries, Distinction playgroups and childcare disappears, Draft decision childcare allowance . Any questions? Ask them at the nursery!
Childcare allowance will rise
Perhaps the most important and most discussed topic is the increase in the childcare allowance. The fee for the childcare allowance goes up, starting January 1, 2016, the government will spend 290 million euros extra for childcare. With the extra money the government intends to improve the financial accessibility of childcare for parents. This announced the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
Very nice, but what does that mean for you
The changes in childcare allowance
Indexation of the hourly rates for (= maximum hourly) daycare, after schoolcare and childminding. The maximum hourly rate for the childcare allowance goes up, which means that the hourly rate for daycare will change from € 6.84 to € 6.89 per hour care.
For the first and second child, the childcare allowance rate for all parents increase by 5.8 percent. Here, the highest allowance rates are maximized at 93% and 94%. For the full list of the childcare allowance rates read more here .
And at Unikids 2.0 Daycare
Indexation and increases do not always have a positive effect which means that the costs of Unikids 2.0 Daycare in recent years have risen sharply. In contrast to the past few years, it means that we have to increase the hourly rate. In 2016 the new hourly rate will be € 6.84. With this hourly rate Unikids 2.0 Daycare can still continue to offer you what we offer now. So one hourly rate for all types of contracts, an hourly rate within the childcare allowance and no expensive flex rates but still a flexible exchange policy, a nursery different than others in Tilburg!
Costs will decrease for you!
Insofar Unikids 2.0 Daycare know for now, parents with a total income of 1.5 times the average income and two children who attend three days a week for childcare. The average cost of childcare after childcare allowance will decrease by € 106 per month.
Is this all, no there are more changes!
Opening hours, possibility open half hour earlier!
A number of parents have indicated that it would be nice if the nursery could open half an hour earlier to better reflect on the train or work outside Tilburg. From January 1 we make it possible for you! The normal opening hours of the nursery remain from 7:30 to 18:30. If you’d wish to make use of half an hour earlier, we ask you to indicate this preferably 10 working days beforehand at the nursery. So that we can tailor the schedule of the pedagogical staff on that. The cost for this extra half hour amount will be € 3.42. Asking it later, we cannot guarantee it is always possible. Because of the necessary capabilities to a childcare in relation with the schedule of the pedagogical staff.
7:00 pm at the nursery is very early, so it is possible for you to take bread with oy for the children. We will give your child the bread at the nursery.
Daily activities of the children!
Know what your child is doing at the nursery is very important, so we are going to organize a parents meeting again in 2016. Parents prepare yourself, we will bring back your childhood. Back to the finger paints, cutting and pasting while enjoying a drink.
This isn’t all. If you like to have an one on one conversation besides the annual one on one conversation about your child every year with a member of Unikids 2.0 Daycare. It is no problem! You can always make an appointment at the nursery.
In addition, it is also possible to continue the writing of a notebook after the first year. The team of Unikids 2.0 Daycare will also like to know if you have had a good weekend with the family in Tilburg, so writing yourself is a requirement!
Childcare Tilburg to 3.0!
In addition to the changes in 2016 the municipality of Tilburg has a longer term vision for the nurseries and playgroups. Parental involvement, quality of care and improve the transition of children from the nursery to primary school are important points. Unikids 2.0 Daycare shares this vision and is working intensively on this.
January 1, 2016 there must be the same quality standards in the field of child ratios applied to nurseries and playgroups. In 2015 the first steps are made. Ultimately, the playgroups will harmonize with childcare. Originally this was planned for 2017, unfortunately it has been delayed at the earliest 2018 because of the problems of adjusting the tax system. In the period between the playgroups will remain under the municipality of Tilburg.
We are almost done!

The City of Tilburg offers childcare and playgroups various courses and certification to improve quality. Some childcare organizations taking part in here, including Unikids 2.0 Daycare.
