How many childcare facilities were there in Brussels in 2015?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know? - 10/10/2017

Answer: 683

In 2015, the Brussels-Capital Region numbered 683 childcare facilities.

139 of these offered family-style care while 544 provided group-based care.

In a group-based structure, children are catered for in group, usually divided into sub-groups, and looked after by professionals in child-friendly premises.

In a family-style setting, children are looked after in a small group at the home of a professional (childminder, babysitter) or in another child-friendly facility.
