Types of Contracts

What kind of childcare contracts do you offer?

Teddy Kids offers three types of contracts where you choose a full day or a half day.

Full Day: 7:30 – 18:30

Half Day Morning: 7:30 – 13:00

Half Day Afternoon: 13:00 – 18:30

Can my child attend only one day a week?

Yes, of course! Flexibility is number 1 at Teddy Kids! If you’d like your child to attend only on Tuesdays for example, that’s no problem. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is also possible. Let us know what you need. We’re happy to create a schedule that work best for your family.

Is there more flexibility for drop-off and pick-up?

Yes! Flexibility is number 1 at Teddy Kids! Here are our options for drop-off and pick-up times:

On demand
Some days you need to come a little earlier or a little later. We understand. Therefore, we can extend the hours by 15 minute blocks so you can drop your child off as early as 7:00 or pick them up as late as 19:00. Parents are kindly requested to discuss extended hours beforehand so our staff is well prepared for your child.

Flexible hour contracts
Additionally, we offer contracts with flexible hours. This essentially means you can choose your own hours between 7:00 and 19:00. “Flex contracts” come at an additional fee of €1 per hour. Such contracts are limited and are subject to availability. We’re happy to discuss the options that work best for your family.

What are contract days?

Contract days are the days of the week that your child regularly attends, which is agreed upon once your contract starts.

For example, you may request a contract for just one day a week, such as Mondays. Mondays are considered your contract days and therefore every Monday of the month is considered booked for your child. In addition, a voucher cannot be applied for a future Monday, since that day of the week is already a regularly booked contract day for your child. Read more about changing days and using vouchers here.

Or you may choose three days a week, such as Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Then every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the month are considered your contract days and therefore considered booked for your child.

You may also have a contract for five days a week! You let us know your needs. Flexibility is number 1 at Teddy Kids, and we’re happy to create a schedule that work best for your family.

What is the benefit of a contract for 5 days a week?

The number 1 benefit of a full-time contract is that your child’s space is guaranteed for every day we are open. We have room for your child whenever you need it!

How easy is it to change my contract?

We are happy to make changes to your contract at any time with no penalties. Please contact us as soon as you know you need to change your child’s contract days.

Remember that cancelling or booking an extra day on an ad-hoc basis is possible without any changes to your contract. Changes to the contract are for permanent amendments.

What if I want to book an extra day every week from now on?

Remember, we’re flexible! Booking an extra day in Zaycare now and then is no problem. If you need to book extra days on a permanent basis, however, then you must request a change to your contract by sending an email to hello@teddykids.nl. We’re happy to create the schedule that best suits your family.

What if I want to book an extra day for only next week?

No problem! You can book an extra day in Zaycare, provided there is space available and that the schedule change was requested in time, at least 1 workday in advance (24 hours from 07:00, excluding weekends). Read more about booking extra days here.

Is there really no penalty for stopping a contract?

We want to make your daycare experience as pleasant and as simple as possible, so our policy is, no cancellation fees! There is no penalty for ending your contract. If you want to stop coming to childcare tomorrow, then ending your contract shouldn't be a problem. Just contact us as soon as you are ready.

Remember! Once you end your contract, your child’s space at Teddy Kids is no longer available.
