Kindergarden Steigereiland

Hi, I'm Manon Oosterhoff-van der Weide, location manager of Kindergarden Steigereiland Amsterdam.

Looking for a child- and family-friendly neighborhood surrounded by water and with easy access to the A10 highway? Look no further than Steigereiland, the first of the IJburg islands! Our daycare center has an open and welcoming feel, with floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings creating a lovely atmosphere and beckoning you to come in, spend time with us, and explore the light, airy, and spacious rooms.

Then there’s the “black-and-white corner” in our baby section, which we set up especially for our youngest preschoolers and where they can roam around freely and discover this unique early-childhood environment. Did you know bold black-and-white images are the first thing your baby can distinguish? And that mirrors help children become aware of their own bodies and personalities?

We provide two spacious bedrooms for each group – babies, and younger and older toddlers. Our large, split-level yard with its stunning and majestic tree and shading covers is perfect for all kinds of play activities. We have a separate, restricted section for our infants, and finally there’s our beloved vegetable garden, where we sow and care for crops and enjoy the bountiful harvest together.

In this location you will find Kindergarden Steigereiland

  • Baby garden

    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.

  • Discovery garden

    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.

  • Older toddlers

    Our older toddler group focuses on each toddler’s specific developmental needs. We aim to promote self-reliance and challenge them to do as much for themselves as possible, as that will be really useful when they start school!

  • Black and white corner

    We challenge your child to engage with and explore their environment, including in our black-and-white corner. We designed this especially for our youngest babies, because they can see the contrast between these two shades the most during the first few months of life.

Review from a parent

There’s a good reason we take all our three children to Kindergarden Steigereiland four days a week. We had a great feeling about it from the very first day with our first child. I can leave them there every day with complete peace of mind, follow the fun activities they’re doing via messages and photos in the app and, when we collect them, we get a really nice summary and the kids are always happy and excited. The hot and freshly-prepared meals, the variety of activities and the sound childcare methodologies behind these are other great plus points.
