We offer every Thursday gym classes for our younger and older toddlers, so they can discover the world around them through movement and exercise. Gym stimulates their motor skills. They also attend music lessons and cooking classes, taught by our very own domestic help. Our children use the communal hallway for everything from scrambling and clambering to looking after our plants and snails.
Outdoor play is healthy for children, and we let them run around outdoors in our newly designed yard whenever the weather allows it. Did you know that children tend to learn and play differently indoors than they do outdoors? All the features in our yard are designed to encourage this creative outdoor play, ranging from a bike track to a living willow tunnel for hiding to a vegetable garden, where they are introduced to the wonders of nature.
We are located in Zeist’s town center – right in the friendly heart of our community!
In this location you will find Kindergarden Hortensialaan
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.
We offer our children weekly music lessons. It’s especially important for the youngest children, as music helps them interact socially and builds confidence.
Toddlers love exercise, as this enables them to discover their bodies through play. That’s why we do this every Thursday with them during our toddler gymnastics. We use stories to get the children moving and challenge them to make their own contributions.
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!
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
Kindergarden Hortensialaan is the place where my son feels really at home and enjoys playing with his friends. All the professional staff offer lots of different activities throughout the day and he comes home with so many enthusiastic stories. The reports with photos of each day are also great to read and see via the parent app. I’m always delighted that I can take a happy and cheerful child back home.

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.
To increase the chances of securing a spot, we recommend enrolling your child as soon as possible at our childcare. We take your preferences into account during our planning and strive to fulfill your wishes to the best of our ability.
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.
