Our members of staff have creative and/or athletic backgrounds, and challenge the children during a game of table tennis or invite them to do crafts. We have our own yard for outdoor activities and also have access to the large playground of the school next door, which has monkey bars and a soccer pitch. We offer a range of sports and games, including soccer, dodgeball, tag, and field hockey. With good weather, we take the art studio outdoors.
We put together a fun and diverse program during school vacations, including themed weeks during the summer break and themed days during other vacations. We decide on these activities together with the children, which in the past have included Master Chef, talent shows, sports tournaments, and field trips to a local nature reserve for outdoor adventures.
We provide easy and free parking right outside the building.
We pick up at the following schools:
- De Wilge

The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Johannes Geradtsweg
The children can really give a free rein to their fantasy and creativity here. We challenge them by offering many different types of materials (wood, bricks, clay, paint, and such things as Ecoline). So they’re not only doing crafts and drawing but also designing, building, and handcrafts.
How? Like this! Lab
Investigating, experimenting, and discovering; it’s all possible in our laboratory! Children can immerse themselves in biology, physics, chemistry, and technology by doing experiments.
We have a real Kids’ kitchen that’s been adapted for a child’s height. The children learn chopping, kneading, baking, and working together here. We teach them all about healthy ingredients, working independently and following recipes.
Playing outdoors isn’t only healthy, children tend to learn and play differently indoors than they do outdoors. That’s why we go outdoors every day to play table tennis or enjoy running around the school playground, which we’re also allowed to use.

Frequently asked questions
An after-school care contract relates to care after school hours. Children are collected from the school by a member of our childcare staff when the school finishes. During school vacation periods and/or study days, children are welcome at the after-school care the whole day. The same times apply here as for the daycare center: 7.30 am - 6.30 pm. This only applies to your contracted days. Should a study day fall outside your contracted days, you can consult the location manager to see whether you can request this extra day.
At Kindergarden we give your child healthy and varied food, at various times of the day.
The healthy buffet comprises raw vegetables and fruit, yoghurt with muesli, nuts and one sandwich or two crackers with a healthy topping. We always first encourage the children to eat some raw vegetables before choosing anything else. And of course, they also get something to drink, a choice of water or warm (not hot) tea.
Has your child’s school finished early? Of course, we’ll offer them a healthy lunch, including wholemeal bread with various, healthy toppings. Yoghurt is also an option. We also offer something to drink; a choice of water or warm (not hot) tea.
At the end of the day we always offer a snack, which can comprise fruit or dried fruit, or raw vegetables and something to drink.
Hot evening meal
There are also several Kindergarden after-school care locations where the children are given a hot meal at the end of the day. That’s convenient as they’ll already have eaten when you collect them. Of course, we serve healthy meals that cover all the basic food groups. We always prepare these fresh meals ourselves. If we offer this service at an after-school care location it will be mentioned on the location page.
During vacation periods, your child is welcome the whole day on your contracted days. The opening hours are then the same as the opening hours of our daycare centers: from 7.30 am to 6.30 pm. If you need extra time outside those hours you can pay for additional fifteen minute-periods at the location from 7.00 am - 7.30 am and from 6.30 pm to 7.00 pm.
