We often divide the toddlers into smaller groups, so we can engage in activities with more focused attention: while one group stays inside to look at picture books, the other group heads outdoors for play and exercise. We prepare our oldest toddlers for elementary school by focusing on subjects such as language and arithmetic. We have a separate, safe infant garden on the roof terrace, where we can keep an eye on the younger and older toddlers as they play outdoors.
Our activities are seasonally based, so when the apples are ripe for the picking, we turn them into apple sauce or apple fritters. And when chestnut season rolls around, we love to use these gifts of nature for all kinds of crafts. We provide easy, complimentary parking right outside our building.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Johannes Geradtsweg
Our large green garden really invites children to start discovering and playing. The swing, the hide-and-seek shrubs, the sandpit, or the cycling route all ensure that your child is invited to discover and play.
Baby garden (terrace)
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.
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 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
I’m simply delighted with Kindergarden Hilversum. All the staff are so committed, they communicate so clearly, and every day there’s a fantastic, fresh hot lunch. Another plus for me is that they have four different age groups, so the children are always challenged at their own level. And, of course, there’s the huge square, a Valhalla for the young ones who love playing outdoors.

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.
We advise that you register your child as quickly as possible as this will increase your chance of a place. We will take your requirements into account and will, of course, do our utmost to accommodate you.
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.
