Hi, I'm Ilona Simonetti, location manager of Kindergarden Bazuindreef Harderwijk.

The parents who visit us and take a tour of our building always comment on the comfort, brightness and serenity of the place – not to mention the endless space! All the members of our educational staff know all the children, and vice versa. We feel this is important, as we seek to accommodate the different needs of each individual child. Our infants sleep in hanging cribs in the group, to get them used to the scents and sounds in their section of the building, while it gives us the opportunity to get to know them.

All playgroups are delighted to have their own separate kitchen, bathroom, and two bedrooms. They are designed in such a way that we can provide them with continuous care and attention, respecting your children’s natural rhythm at home as much as possible. We prepare our oldest toddlers for elementary school through various types of activities, for example writing letters in bird sand or using tweezers to pick up objects, both of which help them develop their fine motor skills.

Outdoors, children have more freedom and tend to feel more independent, and our massive yard (with plenty of shade) is entirely designed to facilitate this. There are discovery paths, hiding places, and spaces for getting together or (if the mood strikes you) spending some time on your own. You’ll also be pleased to know that we offer easy, complimentary parking.

  • 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.

  • Discovery garden

    Our shady garden really invites children to start discovering and playing. There’s a screened area for the babies, which means that the older children can play to their heart’s content in the playhouse, the discovery paths, or play hide and seek in the bamboo woods.

  • Older toddler activities

    We often make a point of splitting the toddler group so we can respond to children’s various developmental phases. For instance, in the morning we start with circle time, to prepare the older toddlers (over 3s) for elementary school.

Kindergarden Harderwijk is a really wonderful and great daycare center. All the staff are really caring and so much fun. My child really loves going there every day. Another great thing is that they’re given a hot, organic lunch. After a day at the daycare center they’re often too tired to eat properly at home, so this is ideal.

Meet some of our team members

Ik vind het leukste aan mijn werk dat er écht tijd is om aandacht te besteden aan ieder kind, zodat ik goed op de individuele behoeften van de kinderen kan inspelen. Bovendien is het fijn dat medewerkers tijd en ruimte krijgen om zich te kunnen blijven ontwikkelen.

Adjunct vestigingsmanager 

Ik vind het altijd fijn als ik op het werk kom om de kinderen weer te mogen zien. We maken altijd weer een praatje en ze vragen dan vaak 'Wat gaan we eten?' En als ik dan na de maaltijd de lege bordjes terugkrijg, dan is mijn dag geslaagd!

Huishoudelijk medewerkster

Als pedagogisch expert heb ik als doel om de pedagogische kwaliteit op de vestiging samen met de vestigingsmanager hoog te houden. Naast deze mooie functie sta ik ook op de groep. Als pedagogisch medewerker moedig ik de kinderen aan om zichzelf en de wereld om hen heen te ontdekken.
