By the end of the sixties, it was the parents who took the initiative to set up the KinderRijk foundation. The Netherlands was in dire need of well-educated women and young families were trying to find new ways to combine raising their children and providing care. The close parent commitment has never left and provides us, the KinderRijk staff, with many benefits.
Besides their work, parents find time and put energy in the read-aloud days, organise the music during the summer festival or make great photographs of these events. When we ask parents for their opinion, at least 60 per cent take the effort to complete a questionnaire and when it comes to participation, the parents are well represented in all the parents’ committees.
KinderRijk is a non-profit organisation.
