Welcome to our Elderveld facility – a small, intimate, and relaxed setting! Our rooms are all at ground level and all sections are connected, with plenty of lively social interaction in the baby-changing room. In the baby group, we observe your child’s natural rhythm and assess their needs on this basis. This means that if your child is still asleep at mealtime, that’s no problem at all – we’ll feed them as soon as they wake up. Mealtimes are very important social occasions at our daycare facility and a special time for our children and staff. The children always eat their meals in our laps.
In the sections for younger and older toddlers, we create plenty of room for self-reliance: from setting the table to going to the bathroom, we let the kids do everything they’re able to do independently. Daytime activities are offered based on age, to the extent possible. We divide the morning into two parts, for example, so that children aged 3 and up get the opportunity to sit around in a circle and talk about subjects that help prepare them for elementary school.
We have a large, green garden with lots of trees and plenty of shady spots. Since we’re a ground-level building and can be outside in a flash, you’ll often find us having fun outdoors. Stepping stones, tire halves, a sandbox, walking paths, and biking across a bump are just some of the activities our kids love!
