Baby Paradise was in september acquired after a bankruptcy. The child had no permit and was without a license continued, as it now appears. After the insistence of the Child and the Family served the new organizer in november, an export licence application, but that turned out to be incomplete. Since the file is administratively not ok, sick of the palsy, got the child, no new licence. On Wednesday it was there after urgent consultations between the Child and the Family and the organiser finally decided to have the child close.
All of that time knew the parents of the children in the care stayed from nothing. They learned only Thursday night that Baby Paradise will close, and that they are so against Monday a other care for their child. Parents who have their baby that night went to retrieve learned the of the child care staff, others of each other. That same evening received all of the parents, including a letter from the Child and the Family. Officially the nursery until Tuesday close, but due to circumstances decided the staff Monday's close.
We have never been contacted about the problems. Never have we an explanation given or an e-mail seen by Child and Family that care, no authorization hadTamara De Dobbeleer, One of the parents
“27 children are on the street. Luckily I care, but other aggrieved parents have are not that lucky. For many it was a blow in the face,” says Tamara De Dobbeleer, one of the parents. “We were never contacted about the problems. Never have we an explanation given or an e-mail seen by Child and Family that care, no licence had.” As a result, the parents, the child care costs also will not be able to bring in their taxes and they are not eligible for childcare allowance.No confidence
“We hear now that there workers are already two months no salary received and that the staff themselves did not know what it above their head went,” said Dorien De Nil, a other parent. She currently has no new care for her baby. “The child and the Family has other locations passed, but of which there are more in Gijzegem, Asse and Hofstade. It should be feasible to stay for us. When I hear what has happened, then I have no trust anymore for my child to leave with someone I don't know. They carry out ‘commerce’ with your child. The girls who work there do, however hard their best. If they are in a different location to start, do I write my child directly.”
Our youngest child was still only two days in Baby Paradise. Had we known that the shelter is no licence, then we had our second child would not be registeredSven Vanlangendyck
Sven Vanlangendyck is not to say that the parents are not in the past been advised by Child and Family. “They have since september 11, no permit shall be granted. Strange that they do not hesitate to contact us.” He has two kids in Baby Paradise were collected. “The oldest child stays for two years, the last two days. Had we known that the shelter is no licence, then we had our second child would not be enrolled.” Also he has no new care. “Leave, sliding hours or a half day in the grandmother can be a stopgap. Child and Family would be here as a body of lessons from have to draw. It may happen that a crèche should be close, but they knew for five months that this could happen. If they as parents were informed, had we, ourselves, can insist upon the organiser or had we at least had time to seek another solution for our baby.”for Months, urged
“We have the organizer for months, repeatedly urged to do everything in order to bring”, says Nele Wouters, spokeswoman for Child and Family. “We have also asked to be transparent about this to communicate to all parents. Transparent communication is one of the conditions for a licence. We have this week samengezeten with the organizer to see if there is a plan of action was. That turned out not to be. We have contacted the municipality to the parents, as well as the support and as soon as possible to find a solution in the near,” says Wouters.
For ships of Childcare Sofie Renders (CD&V) came the news of the abandonment to his own words, " out of the blue. “This is terrible news for the parents and children and we regret this situation immensely, but as a council we are powerless against such a drastic decision of the independent organizer. I wanted to still try to get a buyer to find, but the owner of the property will not rent out as a child.”
“We are committed to the affected parents to assist in their search for a new reception centre for their children. After Child & Family us the list concerned of the children in Baby Paradise stay, our service Educate today to all affected parents sent an e-mail with the childcare in the region.” In Denderleeuw, there were already 175 children on the waiting list. “We really hope the parents soon a new her can find for their kids.”
