One of the key tasks of Kind en Gezin is the direction of child care in Flanders. However, recent information on the use of and needs for after school child care is lacking.
Therefore Kind en Gezin is conducting an investigation into the use of care for children between 2.5 and 12 years old. Research topics are the current need for child care, an evaluation of the current state and a poll examining present attitudes towards some lines of thought that Kind en Gezin has in mind for a new care structure.
The study consists of a survey among parents of 6000 children in Flanders.
Timing: January 1st 2012 - December 31th 2012.
