Short period of supervision for schoolchildren over the age of 12 (LSS)

Children over the age of 12 with functional impairments, who have guardians with paid employment, are entitled to a short period of supervision outside their own home.

The service is offered before and after school, during holidays, on teacher training days and during longer holidays. The short-term supervision is intended to offer relaxing and active leisure time in a secure environment with positive adult role models. It is intended to promote a sense of community and provide physical and psychological stimulation. The need for supervision can vary greatly, and must therefore be flexible.

There must be a supervisor for the service, who is responsible for the daily work and for ensuring that the service is conducted with good quality and provides good care.
