We’ve still got the old school bell hanging on the wall, and the pond at the back is sheer magic – just like the views over the Vondelpark. You’ll find us in the heart of South Amsterdam, yet at only 3 minutes from the A10 highway. Welcome to the irresistible world that is Villa Vondel! At our daycare facility, we give children all the space and freedom to make their own choices, providing an environment that is relaxing and challenging in equal parts – which is key to enhancing their development.
We start challenging them as early as the baby group, with its playmats, play mirrors, and a “black-and-white corner.” All this activity is balanced out by some R&R – rest and relaxation – in the form of baby massage and baby yoga. Our toddlers love cavorting around in the Friends call me Jim room, a separate exercise room where they can complete an activity course to get them up and moving. They get to engage in all kinds of adventurous physical activities, always supervised by our specially trained daycare attendants.
The highlights in our yard include an exercise path, a sandbox, and a bike trail (complete with bumps). In balmy weather, we enjoy our meals together at the lovely picnic table out on the patio.
