The after-school centres are often open in the afternoon when the regular school day has ended, and on some days when there is no school. The youth clubs are open in the evenings.

The centres and clubs do not actually perform childcare, but offer a wide range of after-school activities.

They are typically split according to age:

  • “After-school” for 10 to 11-year-olds
  • “Junior” for 12 to 14-year-olds
  • “Youth” for 14 to 18-year-olds. 

If you do not agree with the municipality’s decision, you must make a complaint to the municipality within four weeks. The decision must be re-assessed within four weeks of the complaint being received.

If the municipality upholds its decision, it will forward your complaint to the Board of Appeal (Ankestyrelsen) which will rule on the decision.
