A Kindergarden location on Vondelstraat in upscale South Amsterdam may conjure up images of a landmark building, peace and tranquility, a central location, the bustle of the city always nearby... Well, you would be right. But did you know that we also offer baby massage for our littlest ones, as well as toddler yoga? And did you know we regularly have a guest instructor come in to teach the kids music lessons?
In every part of our building – we maintain separate sections for infants, younger toddlers, and older toddlers – you’ll find clearly marked corners, toys and other play products that are adapted to the children’s needs and stages of development, most of which are appropriately sized. As the children grow and develop, so does the size of the furniture and educational level of the toys we offer them, which encourages their creativity and development.
Our green yard is huge by Amsterdam city center standards, and it’s also full of fun and friendly play areas – including the old beech tree, which provides plenty of shade in the summertime. When the weather is nice, we like to eat outside. We have a sectioned off part of the yard for our infants (including a sandbox), where they can safely spend time outdoors during the summer months. Our younger and older toddlers like to ride their pedal go-karts and bikes through the lanes. Our pride and joy is our vegetable garden, where we plant, nurture, and harvest herbs, strawberries and radishes – which we like to sample every chance we get!
