What’s the program for today? We have a large live-in kitchen with a kids’ section where we cook delicious meals with the children, ranging from soup to pancakes, or whatever they might be in the mood for that day. Kids can take on any type of activities in our studio, or get some R&R in the living room (which doubles as a chill-out room). Then there’s the adjacent library, where they can sink down into the cushions and lose themselves in a book.
In addition to our vegetable garden (where the children grow their own veggies), we also have a yard where they can take part in a variety of activities, including ballgames, playing with a parachute, balancing games, and a sandbox. Just around the corner, you’ll find a playground with a soccer pitch and a square where children can play on the swings.
Our after-school club in Kralingen is located near downtown Rotterdam and the A16 highway. We are well served by car and public transportation and provide ample parking facilities.
We pick up at the following schools:
- Montessorischool Kralingen
- Vrije school Vredehof
- De Kralingsche School
- De Arentschool
The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Tijs van Zeventerstraat
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.
Does your child have hidden talents as a chef? All the children are challenged to prepare delicious meals for their friends in the after-school club Kids’ kitchen. We’ve got so many great recipes to choose from!

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.
