We teach children to manage their own spare time, so they get to choose whether to spend this time indoors or outdoors, or pursuing athletic or creative activities. The activities we organize at the group are based on special themes: Sports and Games, Creative, Cooking, and Technology. There’s always an outdoor activity to choose from. We also run a very popular Kids’ Kitchen, where almost everything is child-sized. The square behind the building is reserved for sports. Here you will find climbing elements, as well as a soccer pitch where childeren love to come.
During school vacations, we organize activities based on one of the themes listed above. We try to make these activities extra appealing by asking the children what they would like to do, and then put the vacation program together. We organize workshops and go on field trips, including a local fortress and various museums.
Our after-school care is located on a main road, with easy access to the A1 highway.
We pick up at the following schools:
- Minister Calfschool - Johan Willem Frisolaan
- Minister Calfschool - Verlengde Fortlaan
The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school. Is your school not listed? Ask our Customer Relations department on 020 423 54 22 about the possible options.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Lambertus Hortensiuslaan
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.
Chill out corner
We’ve set up a wonderful chill out corner by the former stairwell. Children can enjoy relaxing here after a busy day at school. Chilling out for a while on the bean bags with a good comic or reading book. What more could a child want?
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.

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.
