Childcare centre


Kindergarden Nijmegen is located at Postweg 50, surrounded by a beautiful front- and back garden. The neo-classical lines of the former Villa Geldersch Hof still look just as impressive as in the year of construction 1855. Inside, the group rooms have Kindergarden’s typical cosy, homely atmosphere. The backyard has two baby gardens. Because of their location, they connect with both baby groups. There is also a sandbox, bike paths, bamboo forest and a real toddler garden! For the older children, there is also after-school care (BSO).

After school care

Relaxation, challenge and development go hand in hand at our after-school care (BSO) in Nijmegen. Like the childcare centre, the BSO is located in the former Villa Geldersch Hof. There are a maximum of 20 children in a group. Homeliness and small scale are paramount. That means a calm atmosphere, but also ample space to play – being outside is as important as inside! The front garden - on the edge of the forest - has a trampoline, a large football field, a stray forest and climbing equipment.

Our after-school care centre in Nijmegen is designed in such a way that children can fully enjoy light, air and space. Relaxation, play and discovery are central to the program as you can tell from the facilities. A small impression...

Living rooms
There are [two] spacious living rooms in calm, cool colours to be together, relax, play, build together or watch TV together.

Kids Kitchen
During cooking workshops, children become acquainted with food and cooking. They learn to handle equipment and are encouraged to do everything independently as much as possible.

Science Rocks Lab
Taking care of animals? (tortoises, fish, reptiles) Sorting plants? Carry out experiments? Grow a vegetable garden from cuttings? Working with a microscope? Soldering? 3D printing? A workshop to learn how to control a Lego robot? Everything revolves around Nature and Technology.

ArtSmart atelier
In the ArtSmart atelier, creativity is queen: there are easels, workplaces with bench screw, there is a sewing machine and we do crafts with clay, wood and ecoline.

Peace, quiet, a hanging chair, bean bags and pillows... A large number of children's books, sorted by age and subject (also for 4-year olds), makes the library a wonderful place to relax.

Computer room
This concerns information and education: children can do homework, follow a type course and use the available equipment to produce or programme something, for example a video.

Through a fence, the children reach a safe, challenging front yard to be together, to climb, to hide in the stray forest, to jump trampoline or play on the soccer field.
