Living in Europe | Day care, schooling & family related issues | Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands are considered to be a family-friendly society with a safe and peaceful environment and generous child and parental benefits and child care provision.


The municipalities provide day care for children up to school age. Day care can be provided in private homes or in day care centres.

Children with special needs can receive specialized pedagogical assistance in the day care centres.

Parents can register their children for day care six months before they move to the Faroe Islands.

After school care is provided in most municipalities for children in the early school years.

Parents have to pay a fee for day care for their children. In some mucipalities the fee will be reduced if the family has several children in day care.
