Maison relais will be free of charge

From the beginning of the school year 2022-2023, non-formal education in Luxembourg will be free of charge during school weeks. Depending on whether your child attends the maison relais in Differdange during school weeks or during the school holidays, there will be different costs.

During school periods

  • Free childcare will be provided during school weeks Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
  • For hours before 7:00 a.m. (e.g. starting at 6:30 a.m.), payment is mandatory. The parents’ financial participation follows the service voucher (CSA) scale.
  • For children in elementary education (cycles 1 to 4).
  • Free childcare does not apply to infants (e.g. crèche) or to children enrolled in early education (Précoce).
  • The childcare voucher system (CSA) is mandatory. To join the CSA, you must go to your municipality – for Differdange: Education and care department (SEA), tel: 58 77 1-1405/1426/1432.
  • We would like to remind you that the number of children that can be accommodated in each maison relais is fixed by the Ministry of Education. The city of Differdange is not allowed to exceed this number. Therefore, the available places are limited. The same applies to homework assistance for cycles 2 to 4 (Hausaufgabenhëllef).
  • During school weeks, lunch will be free for children who are subject to compulsory schooling (cycles 1 to 4) and who are admitted to a maison relais in the municipality of Differdange.

During holiday periods

  • During school holidays and holiday periods the parents’ financial participation applies to all reserved time slots as well as to the meal. There is no ceiling for children subject to compulsory education. Education and childcare facilities apply the CSA rates.
  • Free meals are reserved for families with an income of less than twice the minimum social wage. For other families, CSA rates apply.
  • Please note: in case of non-cancellation within the time limits mentioned in our internal regulations (ROI), the time slots reserved in advance will be charged as well as the meal.
  • In order to ensure an optimal and coherent organization, we kindly ask you to inform the people in charge of Maison relais in time of any unforeseen changes (e.g. due to illness and the like).
