In a number of agreements with the Leiden University de Kattekop has established that the 50 day care places are intended exclusively for staff and students of Leiden University. One of the parents or guardians has to be a student or member of staff of Leiden University or of an institution affiliated to the University.

At the initiative of Leiden University de Kattekop Childcare Foundation was established in 1980. It is one of the oldest childcare centres in Leiden

For all your questions about childcare you can call us directly or send us an email. There is no need to contact the Personnel Department of the University first.

We can also well understand that, having read the information on the website, you may like to have an idea of the atmosphere at the centre, the staff and the premises.
