Hi, I'm Afke van den Hurk, location manager of Kindergarden 't Zand Utrecht. Would you like to come and take a look at our childcare location?

Parents who visit our location for the first time are bowled over by its beautiful garden and spacious and peaceful setting – and that’s before they’ve even set foot in our top-floor “living room”! With each room having its own specific focus, every child will have found their favorite place here in no time.

They can relax in the living room, get creative in the studio, explore culinary delights from around the world in our kitchen, or carry out experiments in the lab. Each of the rooms offers activities based on the theme selected for that specific month, though of course children are also welcome to just hang back and relax after a busy day at school.
Our after-school club has its own yard, where we play soccer or tag or examine various small critters together. We believe school vacations are all about having fun and giving kids a sense of freedom, so while they’re very welcome to join in the program, they’re also free to do their own thing if they like. We offer workshops and go on daytrips together, including visits to museums and kicking around in the local playground. It’s our experience that children are happiest when they have lots of activities to choose from. We recently had a reptile expert come in to tell the kids about these fascinating creatures. The experience was both educational and exhilarating to our children, not least because they were allowed to touch the animals.

We are located in Utrecht’s Leidsche Rijn district, with easy connections to the A2 and A12 highways. We are easy to access by car and provide excellent parking facilities.

We pick up at the following schools:

  • De Oase
  • OBS het Zand
  • Montessori de Arcade

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

  • Separate after-school club garden

    Playing outdoors isn’t only healthy, children tend to learn and play differently indoors than they do outdoors. That’s why we go outdoors every day in our own garden with its wooden play equipment and sports field with goal posts where we can play various types of sport.

  • 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.

  • How? Like this! Lab

    Investigating, experimenting, and discovering; it’s all possible in our laboratory! Children can immerse themselves in biology, physics, chemistry, and technology by doing experiments.

  • Yoga and theater

    One of our childcare staff offers yoga and theater lessons. It’s a fun and accessible way to get to know yoga and theater.
