Parental contributions

General information

Parental contributions must be paid for the care of children in crèches, kindergarten or nursery. The amount of the parental contributions depends on the type of childcare, the amount of hours and if siblings already visit the institution or not, among others.


The amount of the parental contributions is decided by the town council every year. These shall apply uniformly for all institutions administered by local or independent authority.
Due to the fusion of the towns Mylau and Reichenbach there is a transitional arrangement for the equalisation of the parental contributions until the year 2018.

Legal bases

  • Saxon Law for the promotion of day care centres (SächsKitaG)
  • Statute regarding the collection of parental contributions for the care and feeding of children in municipal day care centres.
