Kindergarden Villa Vondel

  • Waldeck Pyrmontlaan 23

Hi, I'm Danique van Houten, location manager of Kindergarden Villa Vondel Amsterdam.

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.

  • Studio

    We often divide the infant and toddler groups into smaller groups, so we can really focus on a specific activity. Take our studio for instance, where we offer other craft materials than in the general group, such as magic sand.

  • Friends call me Jim

    The infants and toddlers exercise in our gym hall 2.0 twice a week. It’s equipped with light projections, a projector and really challenging equipment. We use magical stories to stimulate the children’s fantasy and experience and this helps them discover the enjoyment of exercise.

  • Baby yoga

    Exercise is important, which is why we offer weekly yoga, even for the very youngest ones. This develops a good way of moving. We also practice keeping balance and we develop their fine and gross motor skills. They simply love it!

  • Music lessons

    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 son has been going to Villa Vondel since his first year. They’re always so nice and attentive when we drop him off and, when we collect him, everyone takes so much time and care to give us an update about the day. Extra plus points are the daily hot lunch, the use of the app with a diary overview, Friends call me Jim, lots of outdoor playing, creativity, and instructive activities.

Meet some of our team members

Sinds 2019 ben ik werkzaam op de peutergroep en kom nog steeds elke dag met plezier naar mijn werk. De liefde die je terug krijgt van de kinderen is zo speciaal. Bij Kindergarden staan de ontwikkelingen van de kinderen centraal. Wat ik zo fijn vind om voor Kindergarden te werken is dat er met een pedagogisch programma en verschillende ontwikkelgebieden gewerkt wordt waarbij er per individu gekeken wordt welk kind wat nodig heeft. We werken vanuit de emotionele veiligheid, de basis voor kinderen om met plezier en een veilig gevoel naar het Daycare te komen. Om hier deel aan te nemen maakt mij een gelukkige leidster!

Pedagogisch medewerker

Elke dag de blije gezichten van de kinderen zien, kinderen die een knuffel willen, en de kinderen te zien groeien in hun ontwikkeling maakt mijn werk fantastisch! Ook vind ik het fijn om een praatje te maken met ouders, zodat de ouders mij ook een beetje leren kennen en ik hen. Ik werk bij Villa vondel op de peutergroep, wij zijn een hecht team en elke dag leren wij van elkaar, wij stimuleren elkaar en niks is te veel.

BLL student / Pedagogisch medewerker

Mijn taak als preventie coach is om een veilige en gezonde sfeer te creëren op de vestiging. Zo bied ik ondersteuning aan de vestigingsmanager door mij te verdiepen in hoe wij Kindergarden gezond en veilig kunnen houden, dat doe ik door jaarlijks een steekproef uit te voeren.
