Hi, I'm Vesna Groenewoud, location manager of Kindergarden Spicalaan Hoofddorp.

You’ll feel instantly at home at our center, which is located in a single-storey building, with the various sections all leading into the central hall (where we keep a large table where all are welcome). The hall is where it all happens: physical exercise, making music, and “story time with grandma.” Thanks to all this lively interaction, all our children are familiar with all our members of staff, and vice versa.

Whenever a new infant joins our infant group, we get to know them by using hanging cribs, which is also a good way to let them get used to the scents and sounds in their group. We like to do crafts with our toddlers whenever we get a chance, and as they learn to experiment freely with paint, we teach them how to use various materials, utensils, and techniques. The most important thing is not necessarily what they make and how they make it, but that they enjoy themselves and have fun.

It’s our experience that children play differently outdoors than they do indoors, and all the features in our yard are designed to stimulate this creative outdoor play, ranging from the vegetable garden with its herbs and plants to a bike track to a living-willow tunnel where the kids can hide if they feel like it. Our yard is partially covered, which is great on exceptionally sunny days – while they’re still able to play outside when it’s raining.

Many parents love the fact that our location is close to the A4, A44, and A9 highways, which means you can be in Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, Leiden, and The Hague in no time at all.

  • 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.

  • Music lessons

    We offer our children weekly music lessons. It’s especially important for the youngest children, as music helps them interact socially and builds confidence.

  • 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 on the discovery path, in our outdoor kitchen and practice balancing on the halved car tires.

  • Older toddler activities

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

Horizontal groups

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.

2 Babygroups
0 - 2 year
1 Infant group
1 - 3 year
2 Toddler groups
2 - 4 year

Kindergarden Spicalaan is a really good daycare center. All the staff are so professional and caring. We really appreciate the horizontal groups. There’s also hardly any staff turnover. They focus so much on your child’s development. And finally, the fresh, hot lunch is also a great feature! Our son always loves going to Kindergarden Spicalaan.

Meet some of our team members

Mijn functie is heel divers. Ik sta op verschillende groepen van onze locatie, zo kan ik meewerken en tegelijkertijd coachen on the Job. Leuk om te zien dat we als team samen het beleid nog beter en mooier neer kunnen zetten en alle kinderen zich op hun eigen tempo en kunnen ontwikkelen.

Als adjunct vestigingsmanager werk ik op een vaste groep. Daar waar nodig ondersteun ik mijn vestigingsmanager bij taken als het rooster maken, team overleggen en bij rondleidingen. Zo heb ik contact met de kinderen waar ik heel blij van word, maar ook met nieuwe (en bestaande) ouders en mijn team.

Het koken voor de kinderen op het Daycare doe ik met heel veel plezier. Zo leuk om te zien dat de kinderen kennis leren maken met de verschillende smaken. Wij doen elke maand een apart land met de daarbij behorende gerechten. Voor de kinderen leuk om ook gerechten uit verschillende landen te proeven en voor mij leuk om weer eens wat anders te koken.
