Hi, I'm Rowie Zomerdijk-Kouw, location manager of Kindergarden Kortenaerplantsoen Castricum. Would you like to come and take a look at our childcare location?

When you enter our facility, you’re able to see everything that’s going on all in one glance, as each section of the building leads into the lively central hallway. You’ll always run into a member of our spirited staff – some of our daycare workers have been with us for more than 18 years (they’ll be happy to explain to you the mystery of why children sit so perfectly still during their fruit break!).

Our spaces for babies and toddlers are designed to invite exploration, which stimulates children’s development. It’s also why as many of our furniture items as possible are arranged at children’s eye level, including the sideboard containing the items we use for setting and clearing the table, and the “construction corner.” From paper to glue, the children can grab everything themselves.

Our babies have a separate garden – the toddler garden is quite a bit larger and features a blackboard, a water table, a sandbox, bicycles, and a living willow tunnel. For our older toddlers, we also provide a sand and water table with a water pump.

Our location is centrally situated, with several elementary schools located nearby.

  • Baby- and toddleryoga

    Exercise is important, which is why we offer weekly yoga. This develops a good way of moving. We also practice keeping balance and we develop their fine and gross motor skills. They simply love it!

  • Dancing & exercise

    Exercise is important. That’s why our dancing instructor gives our infants and toddlers weekly dancing lessons. The children really love imitating movements while at the same time discovering what their bodies can do.

  • 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!

Our childcare through the eyes of a parent

Our daughter really enjoys visiting the Kindergarden in Castricum every week. They have fantastic groups, varied activities, and a delicious, fresh lunch. The building and garden are incredibly neat and tidy and there’s a big focus on playing outdoors. I really like the fact that the groups are split according to age so that they can always hang out with kids of the same age. This also ensures that the activities are a great match for her development.
