Here you will find an overview of the vacant places in Gentofte Kommunes day-care facilities. You can book an available place according to start date, distance to your home etc.

In Gentofte Kommune, children are considered siblings when they are registered on the same national registry address and live with one or both parents.

Day-care guarantee and sibling advantage

In Gentofte Kommune, you are guaranteed a place in a day-care facility. As for siblings, you get an advantage. If a place is available in an older sibling’s day-care institution when a younger sibling is born, a place will be reserved for the younger sibling. You will, however, need to book the place yourself using the digital solution in BørneGenvej before the child turns 6 month.

You can get access by sending a copy of your purchase agreement or lease and your personal information including names and CPR numbers using Digital Post.

It can take up to three work days from the day you have registered your move until you have access to booking a day-care facility in BørneGenvej.
