Our interior and play equipment: looking through the eyes of your child
Walk into any of the groups and you’ll see clearly marked corners and play equipment everywhere. They invite you to investigate and play! We’d be delighted to tell you how we use our furniture at the locations. Like the play equipment, we ensure that this grows with your child.
We don’t use a mirror to make the room look bigger. It’s a play and discovery item.
The space and everything in it acts as an extra childcare staff member.
Sitting (and pulling up) on the baby group
The youngest can pull themself up and the older children can easily sit at the table themselves.
Sitting on the infant group
Multifunctional chairs for toddlers, because, conversely, they are ideal collection boxes.
Sitting (and playing) at the toddler group
The table and chairs are used by the toddlers for lunch as well as for play.
Sitting on the older toddler group
Ideal just to be able to sit down at the table at your own height, even for the older children.
Diaper changing, playing, eating
It’s essential that children have space to move freely. Here are a few examples of how we offer your child space…
Kindergarden staff encourages our children to discover how to use the materials and space, observing and redirecting the children where necessary. They explain things and help the children resolve issues themselves.
We create the conditions
The group room itself, the different corners and spaces each with its specific function – everything is well-prepared. Whenever you enter one of our baby, infant, toddler, and older toddler groups you’ll find clearly marked corners, and toys and other play equipment that are adapted to the children’s needs and developmental stages. As the children grow and develop, so does the size of the furniture and educational level of the toys we offer. This stimulates the natural creativity within each child. We’re always working hard to create the conditions that encourage children, and therefore your child as well, to play together and interact.

Each child needs attention and guidance to develop. In ‘Wereldwijs’, our childcare program, we explain how we offer that attention and guidance and why we work like this. As we have developed, detailed, and recorded everything in a well-thought-out way, ‘Wereldwijs’ offers the perfect guidance for our childcare staff. This program ensures that, as parent, you know which development points we will be focusing on. In a nutshell, this involves providing an educational environment entirely aligned to your child’s experiences. We also provide a clear daily routine and optimal group structure.
Did you know that a baby plays and learns with its whole body? Preferably in a calm environment? And that infants need to burn energy to develop strength and coordination? And toddlers? Yes, they mainly want to do everything by themselves. They learn to share through play and gradually start to understand their own responsibilities. In a nutshell: everything in every child’s world makes an impression - and everything also has influence. And that’s why our locations use horizontal groups.
