Toddler care rates (playgroup).
The costs for toddler care (playgroup) are dependent on your personal situation and the subsidies (each local authority has different subsidies). Almost all local authorities distinguish between (working) parents who are entitled to childcare benefit and parents who are not entitled to childcare benefit.
Not entitled to receive childcare allowance
If you do not make use of the childcare allowance via the Dutch Tax & Customs Administration (Belastingdienst), the local authority will contribute to the costs for toddler care. You have to pay a parental contribution. How much this is depends on your total income and can vary for each local authority.
You can find your total annual income on your latest provisional income tax assessment. You can also estimate it by multiplying your gross monthly salary by 13 (12 months + holiday allowance). The rates and the amount of your parental contribution can be found in the tables below.
