There are several childcare options in Noord-Holland Noord.
Public daycare for children aged six weeks to four years old. Centres are generally open from 8am to 6–8pm. Urban areas have a shortage so expect waiting lists.
In large cities, there are private facilities offering flexible options up to 24-hour care, which are more expensive, plus international nurseries and pre-school establishments.
Activities and play for two to four year olds. This is often more social rather than proper daycare but it can be sufficient if you intend to work part-time.
Some employers have their own daycare arrangements or local daycare places, which can be cheaper.
Some daycare centres provide this for children up to 12, but it is also provided by naschoolse opvang and buitenschoolse opvang (BSO) establishments.
