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.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Bazuindreef
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.
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.
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 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.

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.
