We tend to promote self-reliance and independence among our younger and older toddlers, and in the “sleep theater” they’re all given their own mattress in their own dedicated space in the room. Our two outdoor areas – the yard and the roof terrace – are designed to encourage children to embark on a journey of discovery and exploration. We have a sensory path, a mud kitchen, a teepee for climbing, and a play track to stimulate children’s motor skills.
You will find us right across from the playground, in a family-friendly neighborhood. With the Oude Haagweg right around the corner, there are excellent mass transit connections to our location. You can also park outside the building.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Appelgaard
Babies can enjoy the fresh air in complete safety in their own sheltered baby garden area. And the older children can play hide-and-seek to their heart’s content in the willow tunnel or in the sandpit, or race around on small bicycles or carts.
Outside sleeping for babies
Taking our cue from the Scandinavian child-rearing model, children also sleep outside: really healthy! Sleeping outdoors has many advantages including fewer colds and children sleep more peacefully, deeper and for longer.
Our older toddler group focuses on each toddler’s specific developmental needs, helping to prepare them for elementary school. We aim to promote self-reliance and challenge them to do as much for themselves as possible, which is really useful when they start elementary school.
Exercise is important, which is why we offer weekly toddler 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!
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
Kindergarden Appelgaard is a fantastic daycare center that my daughter loves going to.
It’s in a great location with light rooms, a spacious garden, caring staff, and lots of sustainable toys.
A huge advantage is that the children are given a healthy, hot meal for lunch and healthy snacks. I highly recommend Kindergarden Appelgaard to everyone.

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.
