Our after school care in Castricum is located in a modern building, close to several primary schools. There are a maximum of 20 children per group in a peaceful and spacious environment. Our enthusiastic team are committed to providing a homely atmosphere and making sure each child gets the attention they need.
What is an afternoon of after school care like?
After school, we always start with something to eat and drink, and chat to the children about their day at school. Then the children have plenty of time to participate in activities or to fill the afternoon as they please.
We offer the children a chance to get rid of some excess energy after a busy school day, with new activities daily, such as playing outside, cooking, building huts, or table football. Each child has their own little vegetable garden and crops are used for the best recipes in the centre.
We have a nice garden with enough space to play football or play tag. The big sandbox is very suitable for the finest sand- and mud creations.
Bring a Friend Day
During the holidays, every day is Bring a Friend Day. This is also possible (in consultation) on an ordinary school day.
The further your child is in elementary school, the more homework they have. We supervise your child when needed.
Trips during the holidays
During the holidays we often organize trips: to the dunes, miniature golf, puppet theatre, building huts in the woods, or we give workshops in our centre, such as making bird cakes, decorating candles and kids dance.
After school care times
Regular care times are on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 14:00 to 18:30 and on Wednesday and Friday from 12:00 to 18:30, with the possibility to extend until 19:00. During school holidays and study days, your child is welcome from 07:30 to 18:30, with the possibility of extending the day between 7:00 and 7:30 and 18:30 to 19:00. On public holidays, as well as the week between Christmas and New Year, we are closed.
After school care is possible for several elementary schools in Castricum. The Paulusschool, Sokkerwei and Juliana van Stolberghschool are within walking distance. The children from other schools are picked up by taxi. We do not charge any extra fees for this service. Want to know more? Ask for a guided tour or inquire at our headquarters.
