Forms of public day care for children are

  • Day care facilities (crib groups, kindergarten groups, hoarding groups, cross-age groups)
  • Day care for children (primarily for children under three years of age and school-aged children)

Day care centres are day care facilities for children who are cared for regularly, but at least 10 hours a week. Nurseries offer a group-based form of care.

Day care for children is a form of personal care. The children are cared for by a suitable day care worker in their or in the household of the persons entitled to care or in other rooms.
