Over one-fifth of places are empty in nurseries in Wallonia-BrusselsFriday, 13 April 2018 21:10
The many reasons for this paradox include the attraction of cheaper creches, sudden changes by parents, partial occupancy of some slots and the inability to predict exactly when a child will leave a nursery and free up a slot.
“All children do not attend school for the first time together,” explained Catherine Jossart, head of a private nursery in Orphain. “In certain establishments, their registration in kindergarten depends on their cleanliness.”
To “optimize” the occupancy of the nurseries, the Office de la Naissance et de l’Enfance (ONE - Office for Birth and Childhood) is developing an app called “Gima pub” aimed at providing a better oversight of the slots available in nurseries and cases of multiple demands submitted by anxious parents.
In 2016, there were 44.185 places in collective and family establishments in Wallonia-Brussels
