Hi, I'm Nannette van der Kruk, location manager of Kindergarden Raamsteeg Leiden. Would you like to come and take a look at our childcare location?

You’ll find our after-school care in a beautiful old canal house right in Leiden’s city center. It’s a perfect space for after-school activity and relaxation, where children (alone or with friends) can play board games or burn off some energy in the gym or the adjacent playground. The rooms are spacious and well resourced, and the groups are divided by age: 4-6, 6-8, and 7+.

Children get to choose their own activities, including soccer, sidewalk chalk, tag, marbles, and so on. We also carry out experiments together in the lab or do crafts in our creative studio, where we might design our own bracelets. We offer our 7+ group activities tailored to their needs and stage of development. We keep the kids entertained with special themes such as De reizende Wereld (“World Travelers”), where (using our imaginations) we “travel” to a different continent each week, as well as taking plenty of exciting field trips.

We always introduce special themes during school vacations (last year, we focused on superheroes and fairytales). We plan loads of fun activities for the kids, including cooking, crafts, trips to a playground, scavenger hunts through the city, and a range of workshops. You can also find us in the schoolyard any chance we get, where the children can play any game or sport they like.

Our location is easily accessible, and paid parking is available outside.

We pick up at the following schools:

  • Joseph school
  • Lucas van Leyden (Locaties: Vliet en Steeg)
  • Haanstra school

The schools where we collect can change. Collection days and times may vary depending on the school.

  • Studio

    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.

  • Library

    Time out. A bit of me-time, quietly reading a magazine or book. There’s a huge choice on offer from picture books to reading books. Many of our children curl up on the sofa in the afternoon to read a Donald Duck magazine.

  • Gym

    After a day at school it’s great to let off steam in our exercise area. The gym is great for exercise but also for learning to cooperate and play together. This includes dancing, soccer, or gymnastics.

  • Playing outdoors

    Playing outdoors isn’t only healthy, children tend to learn and play differently indoors than they do outdoors. That’s why you’ll often find us outside, because we can use the school playground next to the after-school club, where children can play soccer or other games.
