Each activity falls into one of the themes Sports and Games, Creative, and Technology, and we’ve also introduced a theme that’s extremely popular with most children: Cooking. The children also get to share their input and tell us what they would most like to do. Our members of staff are always on hand to ensure everyone has a fun and relaxing afternoon.
We also provide opportunities for outdoor play: there’s a sandbox, climbing equipment, a large swing, and a soccer area for the kids to enjoy together or on their own. We take the children to this outdoor play area every day. We’ve got an especially exciting program for the kids during school vacations. For example, we always adjust the program to the theme of that holiday and we offer 5 activities per day within this theme.
We are located in Zeist’s town center – right in the friendly heart of our community!
We pick up at the following schools:
- Damiaanschool Rozenstraat
The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school.
In this location you will find Kindergarden Hortensialaan
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.
Computer room with Wii
Children in this generation grow up using computers. We want to help ensure that they handle computers independently and responsibly. They can play on the Wii (within set rules and for the children older than 7).
Even though we have our own gym, it doesn’t stop us from setting up a huge circuit in an external gym that we hire regularly. The children tackle the circuit with great enthusiasm!
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.
