To prepare the older children for elementary school, we encourage maximum self-reliance, which means, for example, that they can grab their own water and cups and pour the water themselves.
Supporting the children’s growth towards independence is part of our philosophy, including both indoors and outdoors. Working together, solving problems on your own, training your stamina and, of course, the art of falling and getting up again... you’ll learn it all in our large and beautifully arranged garden, complete with tree bark for stepping over, wooden teepee poles for climbing, and a bike and play track. To top it all off, we’ve got a state-of-the-art sandbox and an outdoor kitchen. The separate, secluded section for our infants – covered with artificial grass and special outdoor toys – makes our garden complete.
We are located in Amsterdam’s family-friendly Watergraafsmeer, right next to Frankendael Park and near the A10 highway.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Middenweg
We give our babies extra attention, including through baby massage. This activates your baby’s senses and a massage can make your baby feel secure and relaxed.
Babies can enjoy the fresh air in complete safety in their own sheltered baby garden area. And the older children can play hide-and-seek to their heart’s content in the willow tunnel or in the sandpit, or race around on small bicycles or carts.
We offer our children weekly music lessons. It’s especially important for the youngest children, as music helps them interact socially and builds confidence.
Our large green garden really invites children to start discovering and playing. The playhouses, our bamboo forest or the sand and water table all ensure that your child is invited to discover and play.
Every child lives in a world where everything impresses – and everything has an impact. That is why we work with horizontal groups at our locations.
Review from a parent
Kindergarden Middenweg is highly recommended. Loving, reliable staff with hardly any turnover. There’s always at least one familiar face in the group. And as they have a hot meal at lunchtime, there’s no stress when we get home in the evening! There’s also a wonderful garden where the children can play safely. Our son absolutely loves going there!

Frequently asked questions
Many of our locations have waiting lists because many places are currently full. We rely on cancellations or schedule changes to make a new place available for you. This makes it very difficult to estimate how long it will take before placement options come up. We offer places based on the registration date.
We also have two types of waiting lists:
- an internal priority waiting list for siblings and for extra days for children who already have a place
- a general waiting list for children who do not yet have a place at Kindergarden.
We advise that you register your child as quickly as possible as this will increase your chance of a place. We will take your requirements into account and will, of course, do our utmost to accommodate you.
That depends on various factors including preferred days, how many days you need, and how flexible you are. For example, the likelihood of a placement becoming available for one day is greater than three or four days becoming available in one go. The more flexible you are as a parent, the greater the likelihood that we will be able to offer you a place.
