Scenario 1: cold – childcare fully open 

Sector plan
During the corona pandemic, the government often adjusted the corona measures for childcare. This sometimes caused confusion. That is why the government has drawn up a sector plan. The plan describes four scenarios for corona measures: 

  • Scenario 1: cold – childcare fully open 
  • Scenario 2: Griep+ – fully open childcare with light measures 
  • Scenario 3: Continuous struggle – childcare fully open with more measures 
  • Scenario 4: Worst case – childcare open with even more measures and in 'bubbles' 

We are now in scenario 1. This means that our locations are open according to the existing agreements.

Basic rules 
We ask you to follow the basic rules for your and our safety. 

  • Wash your hands often and thoroughly. 
  • Don't shake hands with other people. 
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow. 
  • In case of complaints: stay at home and do a (self) test. 
  • Provide sufficient fresh air, also at home. 

On the website https://mijnvraagovercorona.nl/, the government provides answers to many questions about corona (self) tests and isolation. 

Parents on locations 
The existing agreements apply to the agreements regarding parents at locations. 

Assess whether children are allowed to go to childcare 
You can use the BOinK decision tree to assess whether your child can come to childcare.
 
If your child goes into quarantine or isolation according to the current guidelines and therefore cannot come to the shelter, the same rules apply as if your child cannot come due to illness. This means that you can unsubscribe your child up to five days before the day in question to receive exchange hours. You can only unsubscribe via the parent portal or the app. 

Exchange and incidental extra care 
Offering exchange hours is an extra service that we provide. We are of course happy to do that. But its continuation, especially in this challenging time for staffing, is not self-evident. Requests for exchange hours remain possible. But we currently have little space to accommodate this. 

The existing rules apply to exchanges and requests for incidental extra childcare, also when it comes to the validity period of exchange hours. 

Deregister children if they do not come to childcare 
We do everything we can to keep our locations open, despite the fact that it is regularly a major challenge to have enough pedagogical staff available. 

Sign your children off as soon as possible if you know they will not come to daycare, for example because of isolation after a positive corona test. This gives us a good idea of ​​the number of children we can expect and we can adjust our staffing accordingly. 

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

 

1. GENERAL
Which websites provide more general information?

2. PRACTICAL

 Will I be compensated for the costs for childcare if my children cannot come to childcare? 
It goes without saying that for all concerned, no one likes it when children cannot come to daycare. For whatever reason. We ask parents to continue to pay the invoices, even if their children are temporarily unable to come to childcare. The childcare allowance also continues as long as the invoices are paid. 

Whether the costs for missed care are compensated by us depends on the specific situation. More information about compensation can be found on this website

Where can I find the rules for quarantine for children? 
You can use the BOinK decision tree to assess whether your child is allowed to go to daycare. Check these carefully before taking your child to daycare. Because if several people from the group get corona, the entire group may have to quarantine. This has major consequences for the children, for you and other parents and for our employees.
