Hours of childcare free of charge - guidelines

Dear parents,

When registering your child in the chèque-service accueil scheme A personalised enrolment card with your child’s name on it was sent to you. This "myCard fir Kanner” card gives you access to a secure space on the website www.staarkkanner.lu, where you will find a number of functions:

  • educational materials
  • access to your CSA invoices and monthly statements
  • and the possibility to edit the weeks during which the free of charge offer of the plurilingual education program does not apply.

The amended legislation on youth provides that the 20 hours of plurilingual education per week free of charge are offered for 46 weeks per calendar year. In principle, there are six weeks in the year during which these 20 hours per week do not apply.

For 2020 they are by default, as follows:

  • the first week of the Easter holiday, from 6 to 12 April 2020 ;
  • the week of the Whitsun holiday, from 1st to 7 June 2020 ;
  • the week during the summer holiday from 27 July to 2 August 2020 ;
  • the week during the summer holiday from 3 to 9 August 2020 ;
  • the week of the All-Saints holiday, from 2 to 8 November 2020 ;
  • the first week of the Christmas holiday, from 21 to 27 December 2020.

Without any action on your part, it will thus be during these six weeks in 2019 that your child will not have the benefit of the 20 hours of plurilingual education per week free of charge. If needed, you can edit the allotment of the weeks.

The change can be made at any time before the end of the billing period.

We would draw your attention to the following point: to benefit from the ceiling of 100 euros per week (excluding meals) that applies during school holidays, you must choose weeks without plurilingual education free of charge during the school holidays.

Once the month has ended, you will no longer be able to change which weeks will not be free of charge. Any re-invoicing will be based on this choice of weeks.

In your personal space “Espace chèque-service”, you will find a video that explains how to use this function.

Your child’s card remains valid until he or she ends primary school (fondamentale), in other words, a new card is not delivered each year when you renew your chèque-service accueil contract. For frequently asked questions about "myCard", please click here.
