The members of our team love a good challenge as much as the children, so we go on adventures with Let’s go camping and in our library we teach various workshops, including yoga, Zumba, and sign language. We encourage children to make their own choices, so they can set their own after-school schedules as part of our program.
We run three after-school groups. Our stimulating and massive yard has a separate section where children can play on their own from age 7. We offer many fun features, including our own climbing equipment. Our themed vacation program includes days out to the beach, the Omniversum (immersive IMAX movie theater), the sand playground, museums, and the local children’s workshop.
It’s easy to get onto the highway from our after-school care, and you can reach the city center by driving to the end of Javastraat. The number 1 tram stops right outside the building, and we provide plenty of parking space.
We pick up at the following schools:
- Nutsschool Zorgvliet
- Annie M.G. Schmidt
- HSV Nassaulaan
The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Alexanderstraat
Separate after-school club climbing garden
Our after-school club garden offers more than enough challenges, particularly our climbing frame. Moreover, playing outdoors isn’t only healthy, children tend to learn and play differently indoors than they do outdoors. That’s why we enjoy going outdoors every day!
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.
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.
