Parental assistance

Parental assistance consists of taking care of minors on a regular basis, either during the day or at night, at the request of people holding parental authority over them, as a paid activity.

No-one may work as a parental assistant either full- or part-time if they are not accredited.

Parental assistance accreditation is only issued to people able to prove they have the required professional qualifications. Candidates who have not already undergone basic socio-educational training or care/healthcare training must attend a parental assistants' training course before they can be accredited.
