The classic features of our building – a former convent with the original stained-glass windows intact – add a real sense of history to our daycare. But what really makes our center special is our steadfast and experienced team, who make a point of getting to know all our children and parents. Particularly during the first year, we’ll interact very closely with you by sharing our knowledge and advice. This includes a series of webinars, where we explain more about our philosophy on child care and early education.
In our group for older toddlers, we stimulate the kids in various corners of the room with developmentally appropriate activities. If this turns out to be too challenging on their attention spans, we switch to some form of physical exercise. We give weekly toddler yoga classes (taught by members of our educational staff, who are all qualified yoga instructors). This is an excellent way to make children aware of their bodies and what they’re capable of, as well as being great for improving their concentration skills. We have a special group for our older toddlers, where we prepare them for elementary school.
The attic is where you’ll find our library and studio, which we share with the after-school club. Our park-like convent garden is a haven of rest and relaxation: an ideal spot for picnics where the kids can also play around, build tents, and climb in trees. Taking our cue from the Scandinavian child-rearing model, we let some of the children sleep outside, which is extremely beneficial to their health.
Easily accessible by both car and public transportation, our daycare is located near the highways to Utrecht and Tilburg.
