Hi, I'm Sandra Dijkgraaf, location manager of Kindergarden Waterloostraat Rotterdam.

Even on the busiest days, our daycare feels like a space of refuge. The light, welcoming, and well-equipped rooms have a personal and intimate feel to them. You’ll appreciate the comfort and convenience of our single-story building, and we look forward to showing it to you when you come take a tour! In the baby group, we observe your child’s natural rhythm and assess their needs on this basis. This means that if your child is still asleep at feeding time, we’ll simply wait until they wake up. Mealtimes are very important social occasions at our daycare facility and a special time for our children and staff. The children always eat their meals in our laps.

We offer a wonderful exercise room for our younger and older toddlers where they can dance, jump around, and engage in many other forms of physical activity. Our music room is where our kids are taught by our resident Kindergarden band, who introduce the children to a variety of sounds and musical instruments.

Step outside and you’ll be in our stimulating urban garden, where our infants enjoy their own section directly adjacent to their group. They’re shielded from the older children and can enjoy the fresh air without being interrupted. Our younger and older toddlers like to ride their bikes across the exciting activity track (featuring a natural play tunnel) or play hide-and-seek in the bamboo patch. Everything is set up to encourage them to play and explore.

We’re located in Rotterdam’s Kralingen district, near the downtown area. You’ll pass us on the A16 highway, if you happen to be heading that way.

In this location you will find Kindergarden Waterloostraat

  • Baby garden

    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.

  • Gym

    Toddlers enjoy exercising every day. This enables them to discover their bodies through play. That’s why we do this outside every day or in our huge basement gym when the weather is poor. That way, everyone gets the chance to let off steam for a while.

  • Music room

    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!

  • Older toddlers

    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!

We’re simply delighted with Kindergarden Waterloostraat. All the staff are professional, motivated, and caring and there’s such a nice atmosphere in the groups; anything can be discussed. The rooms are really light and they have a lot of wooden toys, a great garden and they prepare a fresh, hot lunch every day. In short, it’s a really great place for the little ones!

De liefde voor mijn functie als pedagogisch medewerker? Daar heb ik per dag wel 10 redenen voor. Dat zijn die kleine sprankelende oogjes, die brede glimlachjes van oor tot oor. Die lieve wondertjes die net zo blij zijn om jou te zien, als jij hen... Daar doe je het voor. Daarnaast Preventie Coach mogen zijn geeft extra betekenis. Ik ondersteun de vestiging om de veiligheid en gezondheid van onze kinderen, medewerkers en ouders te bewaken. Een mooie en tegelijkertijd spannende verantwoordelijkheid.

Pedagogisch medewerker & preventie coach

Tijdens het werken & leren op de Waterloostraat geniet ik het meest van de saamhorigheid op de vestiging. Dit inspireert mij enorm in mijn werk met de kinderen, iedereen voelt zich thuis!


Met veel liefde bereid ik dagelijks hier de maaltijden voor de kinderen en het team van de Waterloo. Ik geniet van hoe blij de kinderen reageren bij de lunch. Tel daarbij op de hele fijne collega's en dat maakt het iedere dag op de Waterloostraat werken een klein feestje.
