With a big data solution set up by Xplore Group, Kind en Gezin (Child and Family) has a better view on the quality of childcare in Flanders. The application points out – in an objective way – where extra attention is necessary.
Kind en Gezin is an agency of the Flemish government. Its mission is to actively contribute to the well-being of young children and families through services such as preventive family support, childcare and adoption.
In cooperation with Kind en Gezin, Xplore Group built a model that tries to use indicators to identify which childcare facilities deserve more attention from the point of view of the customer managers before being subjected to an on-site inspection. The file data covered the administrative file of a childcare facility, a possible existing complaint file and the data from inspection.
The platform supports customer managers to objectively assess reports on childcare providers and, if necessary, follow up on a file in a more targeted manner.
In a similar way, Kind en Gezin and Xplore Group are building a solution for preventive family support. Analysis of historical data provides a series of signals that can objectively indicate the need for additional support. The application tries to predict where more targeted follow-up may be needed.
