Did you know our children even have their own Children Committee? They get to state their preferences for certain activities, which are grouped into the categories Games and Play, Creative, Cooking, and Technology. Whenever we get a chance, we make an activity plan together or come up with ideas for one of our special themed weeks. For example, during the school vacation we worked on a project called “The Perfect Picture,” involving the use of images, photographs, and artworks. The children also decorated picture frames and even held an exhibit for their parents and each other. Of course, we also give children the space they need to play around, or relax in a quiet corner with a book.
We encourage our children to play outdoors any chance we get: we take them to the local park, go for picnics, play soccer, climb in trees, and organize other sports and games. During school vacations, we might visit a museum or do something a little more adventurous – like building rafts.
You’ll find us just outside Delft’s downtown area, so you can easily stop off on the way to work or the railway station.
We pick up at the following schools:
- De Freinetschool (locaties: de Libel, de Margriet, Loevesteinplaats, de Binnentuin)
- Basisschool Het Mozaïek (locatie: Casper Fagelstraat)
- Max Havelaar
The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Hugo de Grootstraat
The children can really give a free rein to their fantasy and creativity here. We challenge them by offering many different types of materials (wood, bricks, clay, paint, and such things as Ecoline). So they’re not only doing crafts and drawing but also designing, building, and handcrafts.
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 can use the school playground next to the after-school club, where children can play soccer or undertake other activities.
How? Like this! Lab
Investigating, experimenting, and discovering; it’s all possible in our laboratory! Children can immerse themselves in biology, physics, chemistry, and technology by doing experiments.
Time out. A bit of me-time, quietly reading a magazine or book. There’s a huge choice on offer from picture books to reading books. Many of our children curl up on the sofa in the afternoon to read a Donald Duck magazine.

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.
