Central Parent Council

You are welcome at the Central Parent Council

In addition to the Parents Committees at all locations, KinderRijk also has a Central Parents Council. The Central Parent Council is an independent advisory body, consisting of a group of permanent parents of KinderRijk, which strives for the most balanced possible reflection of the Amstelveen/Amsterdam regions and the various forms of childcare.

The Central Parents Council is a discussion partner for the managing director of KinderRijk on topics that are important to all parents and children within the organization. Parents Committees can transfer their advisory rights for these subjects to the Central Parents Council by means of an authorization. Think, for example, of the general pedagogical policy, the policy on nutrition, safety and health or the rates of childcare.

In addition, the Central Parents Council also discusses various other key points in its consultation with the managing director, such as the range of activities, cooperation with education, vaccination policy and parent participation.

We’re looking for members!

The Central Parents Council is currently looking for a few more members. In order to have as balanced a reflection as possible of the Amstelveen/Amsterdam regions and the various forms of childcare, preference is given to someone with children at one of the Amsterdam locations. But parents with children at locations in Amstelveen are also welcome to respond!

So, are you someone who:

  • wants to provide the best care for all children at KinderRijk;
  • likes to discuss policy, asks critical questions, but also contributes initiatives;
  • can work well together and have strong communication skills?

The planned meeting dates in 2021 are:

Day Date Location
Thursday 11 February KinderRijk Service centrum
Thursday 8 April KinderRijk Service centrum
Thursday 17 June KinderRijk location
Thursday 2 September KinderRijk Service centrum
Thursday 1 November KinderRijk Service centrum
Thursday 9 December KinderRijk Service centrum

The meetings last from 8.15 pm to approximately 10.15 pm.
