“The Cost of Summer childcare”

On the 25th of May 2018, the newspaper De Standaard, one of the most important newspaper in Belgium published the article “The Cost of Summer childcare”.

Co-playing was added in a list of childcare options to calculate the actual costs for children and their activities during summer. The article showed that normal childcare options count up to the amount of 634,11€ per month for 1 child.  Co-playing as a solution results in a cost drop for the parents. The article shows that new options are needed because the costs are too high for families right now.
