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.

In addition to 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 childcare location.

Central Parent Council

In addition to the Parent Committees at the locations, KinderRijk also has a Central Parents Council, which represents the interests of parents and children throughout KinderRijk.

The cooperation between the Central Parents Council and the Parents Committees is very valuable. A partnership is pursued, in which each has its own tasks and responsibilities. Where the Central Parents Council discusses the central policy and frameworks with the director-administrator and issues advice on this, the Parents Committee, together with the location manager, makes a translation of this policy into how it is dealt with at the location.
