How many childcare places were there in the Brussels Region in 2017?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know? - 20/11/2018

Answer: 19,784

On 31 December 2017, there were 19,784 places in the childcare facilities of Brussels.

This number has been increasing for several years. On 31 December 2000, there were just 12,192 childcare places.

Given that the number of children under the age of 3 rose from 38,896 (1 January 2001) to 51,883 (1 January 2018), the increase of the number of childcare places is necessary.
