The best care for your child

Making contact, reaching, grabbing, standing, climbing, getting dirty, going on an adventure together, trying new and exciting things, pushing boundaries at your own pace, coming up with solutions yourself, making friends. Do you ever think about what children discover, experience, and learn at KinderRijk?

The first years of life are essential for the development and education of a child. KinderRijk provides a safe, versatile, and challenging environment. We encourage children to dare to be themselves. We give them the space to develop playfully into happy, powerful, and socially skilled people.

You wouldn’t want to miss out on this important period, would you? Or would you like to advise on matters that concern children and parents at your child care location? This is possible in the parent committee. Together we ensure the best care for your child!

What does the parent committee do?

Each child care location has a parent committee: it’s the link between you as a parent and KinderRijk. The most important task? Ensuring the very best care!

You can think along, have a say, and participate in decision-making about:

  • Policy, in particular the pedagogical policy of your location
  • Nutrition, safety and health
  • Preschool education
  • Opening hours
  • Adoption and amendment of complaints procedure
  • Change in the fees of childcare.

Subjects such as the annual plan of the location, the results of the GGD inspection, the range of activities, and the organization of festivities are also on the agenda.

Will you join? 

We can use your help! Show your expertise, organizational talent or other qualities in the parent committee. You decide how much time you invest and when. We meet several times a year.

As you can read from the experiences of some parent committee members, you get a lot of satisfaction from the opportunity to participate, you have close contact with the team that is committed to the care and development of your child, and you stay informed of the latest developments at your location.

Are you interested or do want more information? Please contact your location manager or the parent committee of your child care location.


As a parent committee member you are involved in what happens at your location. Think of policy or fun activities. You really get to know the location! I am also chairwoman of the parent council. Overarching matters are discussed within the parents council. Think of fees, parental participation, but also policies for the whole of KinderRijk. It is important to me that I contribute to the organization where my children have so much fun!

Parent council

In addition to the parent committees at the location, KinderRijk also has a parent council consisting of a delegation of the parent committees. The parent council represents the interests of parents and children throughout KinderRijk. Read more about the parent council here.

The BSO is an important part of my children’s life. As a member of the parents committee, I can directly think along about everything that makes their time at the location fun, safe and educational. This is very valuable to me personally. I also find the contact with the other members of the parent council interesting. This way you can hear about what is going on at other locations and you can learn from each other’s experiences.
