We tailor the activities to the children’s interests and needs, which means we ask the older kids what they’d like to see added to the program and what kind of toys and games they’d like, and we also set some ground rules together. This combination of inclusive decision-making, a peaceful environment, and structure adds to the appeal of our facility. Children have the freedom to do anything they like, from attending workshops to getting creative in our studio to curling up in a corner with a book.
Outdoors, they can engage in sports, take turns on the climbing equipment, or play games. During school vacations, we head over to the Jeugdland natural playground, or the children can be found running around in the schoolyard. We also introduce special educational themes for the children, each of which is linked to specific activities (“Farm life,” for example, includes a visit to a petting zoo.)
Our building is located right behind the Carré Theatre, while de Nederlandsche Bank (Dutch Central Bank) is right around the corner. Paid parking facilities are widely available.
We pick up at the following schools:
- ASVO school
- DR E Boekman
- 4e Montessorischool De Pinksterbloem
- De witte olifant
- De kleine reus
The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Voormalige Stadstimmertuin
Playing outdoors isn’t only healthy, children tend to learn and play differently indoors than they do outdoors. That’s why you’ll often find us outside, because we use the square across the road and designated playgrounds in the neighborhood.
A fantastic space where each child can completely live out his or her fantasy. Face-painting and singing are among the options The piano is often a favorite, and with all the stage props and costumes, the kids put on some fantastic performances.

Frequently asked questions
An after-school care contract relates to care after school hours. Children are collected from the school by a member of our childcare staff when the school finishes. During school vacation periods and/or study days, children are welcome at the after-school care the whole day. The same times apply here as for the daycare center: 7.30 am - 6.30 pm. This only applies to your contracted days. Should a study day fall outside your contracted days, you can consult the location manager to see whether you can request this extra day.
At Kindergarden we give your child healthy and varied food, at various times of the day.
The healthy buffet comprises raw vegetables and fruit, yoghurt with muesli, nuts and one sandwich or two crackers with a healthy topping. We always first encourage the children to eat some raw vegetables before choosing anything else. And of course, they also get something to drink, a choice of water or warm (not hot) tea.
Has your child’s school finished early? Of course, we’ll offer them a healthy lunch, including wholemeal bread with various, healthy toppings. Yoghurt is also an option. We also offer something to drink; a choice of water or warm (not hot) tea.
At the end of the day we always offer a snack, which can comprise fruit or dried fruit, or raw vegetables and something to drink.
Hot evening meal
There are also several Kindergarden after-school care locations where the children are given a hot meal at the end of the day. That’s convenient as they’ll already have eaten when you collect them. Of course, we serve healthy meals that cover all the basic food groups. We always prepare these fresh meals ourselves. If we offer this service at an after-school care location it will be mentioned on the location page.
During vacation periods, your child is welcome the whole day on your contracted days. The opening hours are then the same as the opening hours of our daycare centers: from 7.30 am to 6.30 pm. If you need extra time outside those hours you can pay for additional fifteen minute-periods at the location from 7.00 am - 7.30 am and from 6.30 pm to 7.00 pm.
