Many children in primary education use the BSO in Amstelveen and KinderRijk is one of the largest providers. We therefore consider a good connection between education and care of great importance, both in terms of content and in practical terms.
We are convinced that education and care will increasingly need and seek each other out in the future, with the aim of offering children from four to twelve years of age an optimal day arrangement. A continuous line from daycare to primary school and an optimal connection brings more peace and stability for your child and yourself.
With some schools we are relatively advanced in this collaboration, with others the process is still in its initial phase. The fact is that our after-school care team aims to intensify contacts with the school management.
Covenant with primary schools
KinderRijk has signed a covenant with education partners Amstelwijs and Onderwijsgroep Amstelland. The covenant sets out agreements concerning services, the educational climate, personnel, opening hours, information exchange and responsibility.
We have jointly committed to a common vision in which we declare to work as equal partners. Professionalism in childcare and education can mean more together than separately and we exploit these possibilities to the full. Parents see this reflected in the partnerships we uphold not only between KinderRijk and the primary schools, but also with, for example, the Amstelveen music and dance school.
