The SVB will compensate you for your own contribution towards the costs of childcare

Due to the coronavirus measures, all childcare in the Netherlands is closed from 16 March to 10 May. The government has asked parents to continue paying their childcare bill. The SVB will compensate you for the contribution you pay yourself.

If you have continued to pay your childcare contribution, you do not have to do anything further. The compensation payment will appear automatically in your bank account in June or July at the latest. We will also send you a letter.

If you have any questions, always check our website first. More information will be available on our website as from the middle of May. At the moment, we are unable to give you any further information about compensation for childcare.
