Here are some suggestions if you need someone to look after your child/children after school but haven’t been given a place at the OIB garderie:
1) A baby-sitter or someone to look after your child/children after school :
contact a service which acts as an intermediary between you & a baby-sitter / carer. Here are some in the Brussels area:
Service jobs des étudiants de l’UCL
Rue Martin V, 28
+32 2 762.11.96
Service jobs des étudiants de l’ULB
Avenue Jeanne 44
+32 2 650.21.71 – +32 2 650.20.86 (matin)
2) The A.L.E – Agence locale pour l’emploi
The A.L.E. offers job seekers the opportunity to supplement their unemployment benefit through community work – for individuals, local authorities, schools or non-profit associations.
Individuals can use the services of the local employment agency for a number of activities including childcare before and after school, tutoring, care of sick or disabled people, or accompanying to the doctor.
Contact your commune to find your nearest A.L.E.
3) An Au Pair
Engaging an au pair is subject to ther legal procedure of the region in which you live (the Flemish Region, Walloon Region & Brussels-Capital Region). The Brussels-Europe Liaison Office can provide you with further information on this subject, as well as the addresses of the competent authorities.
