Our spaces for babies and toddlers are designed to invite exploration, which stimulates children’s development. It’s also why as many of our furniture items as possible are arranged at children’s eye level, including the sideboard containing the items we use for setting and clearing the table, and the “construction corner.” From paper to glue, the children can grab everything themselves.
Our babies have a separate garden – the toddler garden is quite a bit larger and features a blackboard, a water table, a sandbox, bicycles, and a living willow tunnel. For our older toddlers, we also provide a sand and water table with a water pump.
Our location is centrally situated, with several elementary schools located nearby.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Kortenaerplantsoen
Baby- and toddleryoga
Exercise is important, which is why we offer weekly yoga. This develops a good way of moving. We also practice keeping balance and we develop their fine and gross motor skills. They simply love it!
Dancing & exercise
Exercise is important. That’s why our dancing instructor gives our infants and toddlers weekly dancing lessons. The children really love imitating movements while at the same time discovering what their bodies can do.
Our older toddler group focuses on each toddler’s specific developmental needs. We aim to promote self-reliance and challenge them to do as much for themselves as possible, as that will be really useful when they start school!
Every child lives in a world where everything impresses – and everything has an impact. That is why we work with horizontal groups at our locations.
Review from a parent
Our daughter really enjoys visiting the Kindergarden in Castricum every week. They have fantastic groups, varied activities, and a delicious, fresh lunch. The building and garden are incredibly neat and tidy and there’s a big focus on playing outdoors. I really like the fact that the groups are split according to age so that they can always hang out with kids of the same age. This also ensures that the activities are a great match for her development.

Frequently asked questions
Many of our locations have waiting lists because many places are currently full. We rely on cancellations or schedule changes to make a new place available for you. This makes it very difficult to estimate how long it will take before placement options come up. We offer places based on the registration date.
We also have two types of waiting lists:
- an internal priority waiting list for siblings and for extra days for children who already have a place
- a general waiting list for children who do not yet have a place at Kindergarden.
To increase the chances of securing a spot, we recommend enrolling your child as soon as possible at our childcare. We take your preferences into account during our planning and strive to fulfill your wishes to the best of our ability.
That depends on various factors including preferred days, how many days you need, and how flexible you are. For example, the likelihood of a placement becoming available for one day is greater than three or four days becoming available in one go. The more flexible you are as a parent, the greater the likelihood that we will be able to offer you a place.
