We have grouped our toddlers together, and – being at an age where they have a lot of need for action and physical activity – the children play outdoors whenever they can. If the rooms at our afterschool daycare are available, we take the toddlers there too. We often divide the toddlers into smaller groups, so we can engage in activities with more focused attention. We involve our older toddlers in preschool activities, including “circle time,” which stimulates their minds and prepares them for elementary school.
Our garden – which provides sunlight and shade in equal measure – is a delight for every child: they can hide in the bamboo patches, ride go-karts, or play in the sandbox. We have a designated section for our infants, where they can peacefully enjoy the fresh air in a protected environment.
Located near downtown Rotterdam and the A16 highway, our location is easily accessible and provides excellent parking facilities.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Tijs van Zeventerstraat
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. We aim to promote self-reliance and challenge them to do as much for themselves as possible, as that will be really useful when they start school!
Play and relaxation corners
Our baby group(s) have been designed to ensure that every child in the 0 to 2 age range can play and relax in peace and quiet. They can choose from our black and white corner, reading corner, the kitchen unit, the big play mat, or our mirror with tactile tiles.
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
Our son started attending Kindergarden Tijs van Zeventerstraat earlier this year. It’s been a great experience so far. We really like how much they focus on a healthy diet. All you have to think about in the morning is an extra set of clothing and nothing else. The food, bottles and milk are all available at the daycare center so you don’t need to provide that yourself. The app keeps you up-to-date on all the activities (food, drink, but also the nicest bit - photos of your children). All the staff are so caring and helpful. Our son has such a huge smile on his face when we drop him off and when we collect him.

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.
