In 2023, everyone who works in childcare must be able to prove they’ve mastered Dutch at the 3f level. This measure is, of course, intended to improve the quality of childcare and to ensure that we can speak Dutch will with the children we care for. Some KinderRijk employees have a (older) diploma in which 3f level was not yet required. It is hard to hear that your diploma suddenly no longer qualifies, even though you have been working in childcare for years. In 2019, KinderRijk made the first step to ensure this group of employees get the right certification. On March 2nd, 19 employees received their certificate. Along with well-deserved applause, flowers and lots of cookies. We are immensely proud of these colleagues and are looking forward to the next group.
