De Kattekop Childcare Foundation is intended exclusively for employees and students of Leiden University, or of associated institutes.

Waiting list

Unfortunately it is not always possible to make an offer for placement on the starting date you prefer.


In principle, children are placed in the order of enrolment, taking into account the composition of the groups and the planning possibilities. Children are placed for a minimum of two days a week, over a period of four months.

Financing of Childcare

Parents, employers and the government all benefit from good childcare. The Childcare Law assumes that the costs of childcare are paid jointly by the government, employers and parents.
