At KinderRijk, we offer children aged 2 to 4 years toddler care (also known as half day care or HDO). Do you find it important that your child gets to know other children? That it develops socially? That it goes to primary school well prepared? Then toddler care is for you! Children between 2 and 4 years old can go here two or more mornings per week. Together with peers, they learn to develop playfully.
Playing is developing
At KinderRijk, we believe that playing is the way to get a grip on the environment, even for the youngest ones. That is why we give children the space to explore, play and explore their world. In this way they learn to discover and understand the world around them.
In order to give the toddlers the greatest encouragement in all areas of development, we use several programs, with which we connect with the SLO goals of primary education. With this we follow toddlers and preschoolers in their development through play. Every child can work and learn at the level that applies to him or her.
Types of placement
At the half day care you can purchase three types of places.
A regular place, depending on your situation with childcare allowance
This placement applies when you receive a government allowance, better known as a childcare allowance. You are entitled to childcare allowance if you and your partner both work or study. The allowance to be received depends on the number of hours that the least-working parent is working or studying and on your gross family income. You can apply for this childcare allowance at the Tax and Customs Administration. Do you want to know what this means for you? There is a calculation tool on our website to calculate this. If you are not entitled to childcare allowance, it is still possible to purchase a regular place. In that case, there is no contribution towards the costs.
A place for target group of children (for example with VVE indication)
Some children from 2 to 4 years old receive an Early childhood education indication (VVE) from the childcare center, a program that offers children extras in the language field and that is a good preparation for primary education. If you receive a VVE indication, your child will be given priority on the registration list.
The VVE toddler program is offered at least for 16 hours a week. The municipality contributes to the pre-school for target group children if you are not entitled to childcare allowance. Depending on the municipality, it is possible from 2 or 2.5 years to be eligible for a place subsidized by the municipality. On the website of the municipality you can find more information about this scheme and make a trial calculation of the costs.

Place for non-target children
The municipality contributes to the pre-school if you are not entitled to childcare allowance and do not have an VVE indication. Depending on the municipality, it is possible to be eligible for a place subsidized by the municipality from 2 or 2.5 years. Your child can attend the pre-school for at least 2 days a week. On the website of the municipality you can find more information about this scheme and make a trial calculation of the costs.
