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, because it offers peace and security. 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.
