The length of time it takes parents to collect and transmit all the necessary information to Opgroeien varies between 4 and 8 months. An application is not ready to be evaluated until Opgroeien has received all the necessary information. From then on, Opgroeien aims to process an evaluation within a 3-month period. This commitment applies to all applications submitted from 1 October 2022 onwards.
