Daycare rates

Affordable quality child care

House by the park’s prices are comparable to other quality daycare centers in The Hague. Prices are “all inclusive”: a hot meal, healthy snacks, milk, diapers, powdered milk, craft supplies, etc. Parents only pay extra fees for one specific activity outside the daycare center; swimming.

We are open 11 hours a day, Monday through Friday from 7:10am to 6:10pm. House by the park is only closed on official Dutch holidays and for 6 days during the summer vacations. Every year these dates are decided by a vote by our parent committee and management before the summer vacations. View our annual plan.

Our basic principle

Because we strive for a homely atmosphere and stability in our groups, we ask parents to bring their children for a minimum of 3 days. We are the only one in The Hague to offer childcare for a minimum of 3 days per week. From our experience we have learned that children need stability and continuity to bond with the other children and the pedagogical staff.

A free extra day

House by the park offers one free flexible day per year. Only if we have enough space (perhaps in a group other than your own).

Additional days

For parents who sometimes need an extra day for their child, we charge €110 per extra day.

Childcare allowance

In the Netherlands, all parents who work and have children in a daycare center are eligible for childcare subsidies from the tax authorities. This applies to expats, those working at international organizations, as well as Dutch citizens.

The allowance is given on a per-child basis. It depends on family income and the number of children in child care. It can cover 80% of the cost.
