Hi, I'm Suzanne Bieshaar, location manager of Kindergarden Zuidas Amsterdam.

New, thoroughly modern, and with a home-like feel. When parents first encounter our bamboo-decorated oasis of calm in the Zuidasdistrict, it’s always love at first sight. You’ll find the bright and welcoming central kitchen – where you can meet other parents for a chat or pick up a coffee-to-go – a refreshing change from the corporate environment around us. Although Dutch is the language of instruction at our facility, all our child-care workers are fluent in English, as a lot of our children are from expat families.

All our rooms are spacious and designed in a modern style. You’ll get a taste of our approach in the baby group, where we provide appropriate materials and accessories in an educational and stimulating setting, including such playtime essentials as playmats and preschool play mirrors. Everything is adapted to your child’s needs and level of development.

To stimulate motor skills and physical development, we provide a separate space for gymnastics, climbing, and running around. For our toddlers, we offer the“Friends call me Jim”exercise program designed especially for young children, and the costumes we provide foster an early love of performance and the stage. There’s also a whole world to be discovered in our garden: sand, a water table, and playhouses for our toddlers, along with a separate garden (including a sandbox) for our infants.

In this location you will find Kindergarden Zuidas

  • 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.

  • English lessons

    Young children’s ears are incredibly receptive to the sounds of other languages. We grasp this opportunity every week so our toddlers get to know English through play. We use our hand puppets Benny and Bella for this.

  • Friends call me Jim

    The infants and toddlers exercise in our gym hall 2.0 twice a week. It’s equipped with light projections 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.

  • 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.

Kindergarden Zuidas is really expat-friendly daycare center where all the staff speak English. What’s even more important is that all the staff are so friendly. You can feel that they really love what they do and don’t see it as “just a job.” It’s also great that they prepare the children a fresh lunch every day.

Meet some of our team members

Naast dat ik op een vaste groep werk, ben ik (samen met de vestigingsmanager en adjunct vestigingsmanager) verantwoordelijk voor de pedagogische kwaliteit op de vestiging. Hierdoor kom ik op alle groepen om tips en tricks te geven, heel leuk!

Jolanda
Pedagogisch expert

Wat ik zo bijzonder vind, is dat wij als pedagogisch medewerkers getuige zijn van de ontwikkeling die de kinderen (hier) doorlopen. Ik vind het dan ook erg belangrijk om te zien wat de kinderen nodig hebben en daar op in te spelen.

Naoual
Pedagogisch medewerker

Ik vind deze functie afwisselend en vooral dankbaar wanneer ik al die lieve vrolijke snoetjes van de kinderen zie. Daar word ik elke keer weer blij van! Kindergarden is voor mij een ontzettende mooie en fijne organisatie om voor te werken.
