For a better understanding of each other...

Unfortunately, we do not have specialists in all the world's languages. Naturally, we will speak to you fluently in Dutch and French. If those languages are not yours, we will switch to imperfect English. We hope that is okay for you.

Our partner; the village

Your village, our village, THE village

Expecting a baby or living with small children? The Village is your go-to-guide to pregnancy, birth and early parenting in Belgium.

We provide them with all the content concerning family allowances and the admin involved. They provide (future) parents inspiration, advice and a community to rely on.

It takes a Village to raise a child
What does Infino stand for?

You are more than welcome

At Infino, we believe EVERY child deserves an equal chance in a better world. You want to see your child grow up in a healthy and stable environment. We want that too. Dare to grow together, that is our motto. And we mean it.

We distinguish ourselves every day by the way we communicate.

  • Stronger together: every origin, every family, every background... Together we form a community. No distinctions, just togetherness.
  • Your children matter: it doesn't matter whether you have a big or small budget to entertain your child. We provide plenty of fun tips and ideas to make your little angels laugh. Pssst... often with recycled materials too.
  • We understand you: at Infino, we recognise the difficulties we go through as parents. It's okay to have a down day. It's okay not to be perfect. Every parent does everything possible. We are proud of all parents!
Together for a more viable Belgium
Bébé arbre

A better world for every child

Daring to grow together. That also means leading by example. Infino thinks inclusively, which means we consider ALL families. Newly composed, single people, new residents in Belgium.... It doesn't matter who you are, what you do or where you come from. You are welcome!

We also fight against child poverty. That's why we set up an enterprise fund in cooperation with the Pelicano Foundation.

And erm, we don't forget Mother Nature either. Infino is planting a forest of more than 10,000 trees. Why? Because we are borrowing the world from our children.

Extra care for the vulnerable

We pay extra attention to the vulnerable in our society. We assist vulnerable parents with correct, clear information on benefits and provide personal advice. We also do our bit to combat child poverty, for example through our cooperation with the Pelicano Foundation.
