The number of primary schoolsin the centre of Brussels which use scanners to check children in and out are ever-growing.
The pupils receive a barcode sticker to place on their schoolbag that is scanned when they enter and leave the premises.
It is a pilot project to ease up the level of administration and to make it easier to charge parents for the correct number of hours of after-school care.
The Infano chain of child-care providers is using the system in its daycare facilities as well as in the after-school care centres it manages in Flanders and in Dutch-speaking schools in Brussels. It works in more than 90 primary schools.
Schools can choose whether to keep track of after-school hours themselves or to let Infano do it with the barcode system.
