If you are a European Union national, you can have access to financial assistance from the CAF family allowance "complément de libre choix mode de garde pour l'emploi d'une assistant(e) maternel(le) agréé(e)".
- the child must be under 6 years old.
- must declare their child minder at the URSSAF within 8 days of employing them.
- must not pay the child minder more than 5 times the gross Smic per day per child.
For qualifying persons, the CAF pays part of your child minder's salary (based on revenue) and social contributions.
When calculating the amount awarded, the CAF take into account family allowances received from CERN (employed personnel) or from the home institute (for attachés).
