While we offer two different activities every day, kids also have an opportunity for free play – or they can just lounge around if the mood strikes them. After all, each child has their own individual needs. Our children can brush up their painting skills in the studio or use the microscope in the lab, like budding young scientists. There’s a dressing table where they can put on makeup and raid the perennially popular costume box. The music room features a drum kit and a piano, and we also have a large gym with plenty of space for sports and games, which we use whenever we get a chance.
Our after-school club is adjacent to the Nieuwe Park Rozenburgschool elementary school, and we work closely together with their staff. It takes just one minute to get from the school to the after-school club. Slightly older children travel to the club on their own, while the younger ones are picked up from school. They love that they can play outdoors in their own, familiar schoolyard.
Our after-school club is located near the city center, and (driving on the A16 highway) you’ll pass it on the way to downtown Rotterdam.
We pick up at the following school:
- Nieuwe Park Rozenburgschool (NPRS)
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 Waterloostraat
After a day at school it’s great to let off steam in our exercise area. The gym is great for exercise but also for learning to cooperate and play together. This includes dancing, yoga, or gymnastics.
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.
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.
The children can get to know various musical instruments in our own music room. We explain how they work but, of course, they can try them out for themselves!

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.
