Our organization

Kindergarden is a professional childcare organization. Every day, more than 2000 employees enthusiastically dedicate themselves to caring for our youngest generation with loving attention. Kindergarden started up in 1998 with one branch in Weesp. There are now more than 70 branches throughout the Netherlands. Since 2011, we’ve been part of Bright Horizons, one of the largest childcare organizations in the world. This provides us with access to an extensive source of knowledge and expertise and gives us the opportunity to grow.

There are 700 Bright Horizons branches around the world. The company provides childcare services for companies such as IBM, Unilever, Starbucks and Warner Bros. In 2014, Bright Horizons was named one of Fortune Magazine’s ‘100 best companies to work for’ for the 15th time.
