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. The balcony is reserved for our younger infants, who use it as a garden.

Play and relaxation corners
Our baby group(s) have been designed to ensure that every child in the 0 to 2 age range can play and relax in peace and quiet. They can choose from our black and white corner, reading corner, the kitchen unit, the big play mat, or our mirror with tactile tiles.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.

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.
