The Luxembourg state offers parents who have children in daycare facilities providing “non-formal education” a reimbursement on fees depending on the family’s situation.
Where to apply
Your local commune issues the “myCard fir Kanner” card which allows you to obtain reimbursements. You can go to your local town hall and ask for the department that deals with the “chèque-service accueil”. Or you can apply online via the ministry of education website.
Once received, the card is valid until the child is aged 12 or is still in primary school education. However, every year you will receive a reminder from your local commune and will have to resubmit an application form to guarantee continued access to the scheme.
The child’s full name and national insurance identification number.
The full names and national insurance numbers of the parents or guardian.
The child’s permanent address and that of the applicants.
The billing address for the service for which you are applying for reimbursement.
The number of children in receipt of family allowances who are members of the household of the legal guardian.
The income status (usually last three salary statements) of the household in which the child lives.
