Applying to Zein
With a focus on a mobile international community we are used to dealing with applications and arrivals at all points during the year.
We strive to provide a quick and efficient service to all parents - whether you are expecting your first child and making an initial Day Care enquiry or if you have a whole family transferring to The Hague and need to arrange After School Care for when you arrive. We understand that everyone's situation is different and deserves personal attention from our team.

Please note that we operate a centralised admissions service - all enquiries are initially handled by our Admissions Staff who will assist you with any general and practical questions you may have. They will also make arrangements for personal tours and visits to our different locations. We have multiple locations so please do take a moment to check this website for more information on the site that is most suited to your needs. For Day Care, Pre-School and Holiday Camps you are free to apply to attend any location, but After School Care locations are linked to specific international schools.
What happens next?
Once your application has been submitted, availability will be checked in relation to the location, attendance pattern and start date you require and an offer will be made to you, subject to availability, within 5 working days. Once your interest in the offer has been confirmed, you will be issued with a parental contract. On return of this signed contract your place is confirmed.
Processing of applications
Zein has been working with external Child Registration, Planning & Contracting Service ‘DebiCare’ for many years. As we continue to grow and develop, we are currently in the process of gradually bringing these services in-house. To ensure a smooth transition, the in-housing will be phased across our services: with the start date of the child planning services for day care, pre-school and out of school care scheduled for 1 July 2018, 1 September 2018 and 1 January 2019 respectively.
If you wish to follow up your application, or have any contract/placement related questions, please feel free to contact the Zein Admissions Team via firstname.lastname@example.org or +31 (0)70-324 2412.
The Dutch Childcare Allowance
DebiCare is also able to provide support for parents in relation to the Dutch Childcare Allowance - a generous rebate available to all working parents in The Netherlands - including expatriates. Further information on this allowance and advice on how to apply is available via this link. Please feel free to contact DebiCare directly on +31 (0)180 555 911 for any questions.
