Sibling discount

For families with more than 1 child in daycare or afterschool arrangements, sibling discount is provided. Full price must be paid for the most expensive place, and then sibling discount applies to 50% of the additional places.

The term 'sibling' refers to biological siblings, adoptive siblings, and children from different marriages. The children must share the same registered address.

Sibling discount is not offered to children in club arrangements and for food provisions in nurseries.

For children in private institutions or private care, sibling discount is calculated as 85% of the sibling subsidy for the least expensive age-equivalent municipal daycare.

Subsidy Grants

Payment for a place in an institution can be exempted or reduced, if you as parents can show that your household's current income falls within these thresholds (valid 1st January 2018):

Income: Payment in % of full rate:
Under 173,801 DKK  0%

173,801 kr. to 177,653 DKK

177,654 to 539,799 DKK Payment increases by 1% for every 3,768 DKK rise in income
More than 539,800 DKK. 100% payment

If there is more than one child under 18 in the home, the income thresholds increase by 7,000 kr. for every child over and above the first one.

If you are single

For single applicants, the subsidy grant threshold increases by 60,801 DKK.

Be aware that this refers to genuine single status, which means that you can't be living with the child's father or any other partner.

In individual cases, where payment is not removed or reduced, but where daycare services are considered particularly necessary for social or educational reasons, the local authority may decide to reduce the amount, or exempt the family for payment, if the amount of payment required is a barrier to the child being accepted in and attending day care.
