Child care at Ghent University
Ghent University organises its own high-quality childcare for children from students and staff:(‘kinderdagverblijf’) or (‘onthaalouders’). Both options are specifically for children aged 0 to 3 and offer childcare during the day (i.e. office hours).
There is a specific procedure to apply for a place. Plan ahead: due to high demand, applications should be made at least one year in advance.
Applying offers no guarantee of acceptance. All applications have to go through a screening process and places are granted, taking into account priorities and availability.
