“Crèches” take charge of children aged between 0 and 3 during working days. In some crèches which are approved and subsidised by the ONE (Office de la Naissance et de l’Enfance:, the parents' contribution to fees depends on their professional income. Children are admitted on the condition that their parents are working. However, in non-subsidised crèches, the price paid by the parents is determined by the organism, and is slightly higher. Another option alongside daycares, is that of a certified care-taker in private homes. Some of these caretaker services are subsidised by the ONE. These care-takers are called “Accueillante d’enfant conventionné ONE”.

For the city of Namur, the governmental organism in charge of ensuring reliable childcare is Sonefa.
