Services to individuals: parental assistant, childhood and youth

As far as services to individuals are concerned, the Luxembourg legislation defines the rules and training courses to be followed for the exercise of certain professions.

The parental assistant (or childminder) takes care of children aged between 0 and 12 years in his or her own home. The regulation of the activity of parental assistance or Dageselteren requires obtaining approval as a parental assistant. Persons who have not already undergone basic socio-educational training or care/healthcare training must attend a parental assistants' training course before they can obtain approval.
