Kindergarden Valentijn

  • Valentijn 40
    3972 XK Driebergen

Hi, I'm Mariska Damman, location manager of Kindergarden Valentijn Driebergen.

Villa Valentijn has preserved many of its beautiful historical features, including the old woodwork in each of our playgroups and our many inviting nooks and crannies. These are especially important for our children, as they prevent them from getting distracted and keep them focused on their game.

In our playgroups for younger and older toddlers, the children are given all the room they need to move around and make their own choices – this boosts their confidence and encourages their independence. The older toddlers have their own group with their own dedicated educational staff. We start every day with circle time, to prepare them for elementary school and make sure the transition is as smooth as possible. Circle time (where all the kids sit cross-legged on the floor) is the perfect opportunity for group communication: we call out the names, count the children, and combine text and images to promote social interaction.

Our verdant outdoor space beckons children to come out, play, and make discoveries, as well as providing them with the opportunity to spend time together or alone. We have sectioned off part of the yard for our infants, where they can play quietly, away from the older children and where they can easily make contact with older siblings across the low fences. A section of the balcony is reserved for our younger toddlers, who use it as a garden.

In this location you will find Kindergarden Valentijn

  • Baby garden

    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.

  • English lessons

    Young children’s ears are incredibly receptive to the sounds of other languages. We grasp this opportunity every week so our toddlers get to know English through play. We use our hand puppets Benny and Bella for this.

  • Kids’ hairdresser

    Once every quarter a children’s hairdresser visits our location to cut the children’s hair if you want that. It makes things really easy for you!

  • Older toddlers

    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.

Review from a parent

We’re simply delighted with Kindergarden Valentijn Driebergen. They treat the children with such care and are so aware of the needs of each individual child. The location is stunning with spacious and light rooms, as well as a really beautiful garden. They have a healthy, hot lunch every day, there’s a low-sugar diet policy, and daily photos and messages in the app.

Meet some of our team members

Het is zo leuk om voor de kinderen elke keer een gezode maaltijd te maken. Creatief zijn met de ingrediënten die je mag gebruiken. Heerlijk om te zien hoe de kinderen lekker smullen. De knuffels en praatjes, dat alles maakt het werken bij Kindergarden zo leuk.

Huishoudelijk medewerker

Ik vind het fijn om de zorg te dragen voor de kinderen. Ik geniet van elke lach, knuffel en elk contact met de kinderen. Naast het zorgen voor een leuke en fijne dag, vind ik het belangrijk om de kinderen op hun eigen tempo te ondersteunen in hun ontwikkeling.

Pedagogisch medewerker

Het is een fantastische uitdaging om de taak als Pedagogisch Expert te mogen vervullen. Samen met het team zorgen we voor een veilige, liefdevolle en uitdagende omgeving. Daarin kan het kind zich optimaal ontwikkelen en zelfvertrouwen opbouwen om de wereld te ontdekken.
