Options for children aged 0 to 3

Ghent University organises its  own high-quality childcare for children from students  and staff: day care centres (‘kinderdagverblijf’) or baby minders (‘onthaalouders’).  Both options are specifically for children aged 0 to 3 and offer childcare during the day (i.e. office hours).
