As soon as a child is registered at one of our locations and parents actually agree to place their child, we process additional data in addition to the information provided by the parent(s) on the registration form. This concerns (at least) the following data:

  • Bank account number of parents (only if parents order direct debit).

During the placement of the child, we keep a paper and/or digital file which, (in addition to the aforementioned personal data) contains, among other things, the following data:

  • Medical data (if necessary)
  • Data on the development of the child


The purpose behind the personal data we process

We only process personal data in order to carry out our tasks. The following reasons are the main purposes for which we process personal data. After each purpose we have stated which legal processing reason applies from the GDPR:

  • we share the necessary data with our childcare locations to implement the placement agreement, which may still be concluded (necessary for the execution of an agreement);
  • to be able to call, email or send you messages via the parent portal as necessary to perform our services (necessary for the execution of an agreement);
  • to inform you about changes to our services and products (legitimate interest);
  • to ensure that you receive relevant information about the (possible future) childcare of your child(ren) (necessary for the execution of an agreement);
  • to ensure that the administrative processing of your child(ren)'s childcare is well organized (necessary for the execution of an agreement);
  • handling your registration and/or payment (necessary for the execution of an agreement);
  • sending a newsletter (legitimate interest and/or consent);
  • we analyse your behaviour on the website in order to improve the website and to tailor the range of products and services to your preferences (legitimate interest);
  • we use images for promotional purposes. If your child is visible on this footage, we will only use it with your consent (permission);
  • we also process personal data if we are legally obliged to do so, such as data that we need for the Tax And Customs Administration (necessary for a legal obligation);
  • to ensure adequate administration within the children's centre (necessary for a legal obligation);
  • to be able to follow the development of your child (necessary for a legal obligation);
  • where appropriate, we provide data to third parties for external audits, audits, business transactions (e.g. when entering into a partnership) and promoting security. Confidentiality is central to the implementation of this. The data is not sold to third parties, for example for marketing purposes.

We ask explicitly for permission from parents who are (future) customers with us for:

  • processing special personal data of their child(ren);
  • the use of images of their child(ren);
  • the retention and analysis of personal data in order to gain more insight into relevant market information with which we can improve our services.

This is why we explain the purpose and use of this personal data. The parents are also reminded they may withdraw their consent to the processing of this information at any time.


Sharing personal data with third parties

We offer a familiar and safe environment for your child and think it is important that development is stimulated. There is regular consultation on this. We do not sell your data to third parties. We share personal data with various third parties if this is necessary for the performance of our tasks and to comply with any legal obligation. Along the lines of, for example, of the Tax And Customs Administration, GGD, Child Services Agency, the council, schools, etc.

Personal data may be provided to third parties without permission to the extent that:

  • there is a legal requirement (e.g. in the context of the childcare allowance or to the council for the subsidy received for early childhood education);
  • if this is permitted in view of the purpose for which the data is collected and the subject of the data can reasonably know that provisions can be put in place; 
  • for an urgent and important reason, insofar as this does not disproportionately harm the privacy of the registered(s).

In some other cases we also provide your personal data to third parties, but we only do this after we have explicit permission for this.


The suppliers we work with also care about your privacy. We complete a processing agreement with companies that process your data on our behalf, to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your data. Think, for example, of our child plan program (including parent app and group app) the website builder or a photographer who takes photos at the location.

We use Google Analytics to analyse your behaviour on the website in order to improve the website and to tailor the range of products and services to your preferences.

How long we keep personal data

We do not store your personal data for longer than is strictly necessary. The retention period depends on the purpose for which we received or collected the data and on any legal obligations to retain data. For example, administrative (personal) data generally has a retention period of seven years. If you have any questions about this, you can contact us via
