Preschool Care

Ages 2 to 4 year

Is your child’s proper preparation for primary school a key aspect to you? And that your child gets to know peers from different backgrounds and enjoys social development? Then our preschool care will be right for you.

We use various programmes that encourage preschoolers in all kinds of developmental areas. We link up with the goals of primary education through play and in a natural way. Toddlers and preschoolers are tagged along with in their development: each child can work and learn at the level that suits him or her. This way, your child gets to grips with its environment, has fun with peers and learns to treat others with respect.

Some of our preschool locations are at a Children’s Campus. In a children’s campus, education and care are combined: day-care, preschool and after-school care education. Playful learning and development between 0 and 12 years in a continuous learning pathway.

Different types of childcare places at preschool

Our preschool has different types of care places: regular preschool or preschool-VE. The place that is right for you and your child depends on a number of factors. For example, whether you receive a childcare allowance or are entitled to a subsidy from the city. Some children aged 2.5 to 4 receive a pre-school education referral (VE-indicatie) from the childcare centre. This is a special programme for children requiring additional needs. Contact our Child Planning Department to find out what options are available. 

Going to Preschool for the first time

Going to preschool for the first time is quite an exciting step for your preschooler. You will all have to get used to it. At KinderRijk, we are pleased to help you make this transition as smoothly as possible.

Before starting care at KinderRijk, you will have an introductory conversation at the location. You will meet an educational staff member and discuss how things work at the location, the daily schedule, all kinds of practical matters and, of course, your preschooler’s particularities. This way, you know exactly what to expect from the care, and the educational staff members understand your and your preschooler’s needs.

  • Room to make their own choices

    We inspire children to learn actively, to make their own choices, to try out new things and to find their own solutions. Children therefore learn to know themselves and to appreciate themselves. This enhances their motivation, self-confidence and independence. Even the youngest children decide for themselves what they want on their bread and of course they spread it on by themselves.

What is a children’s campus?

A children’s campus is an ‘integrated child center’ based on the belief that fostering development from zero to twelve years, through both education and care, offers more opportunities to nurture your child’s talents comprehensively. This goes beyond collaboration and coordination: there is one vision, one approach, one team. At KinderRijk, we have 3 children’s campus-locations.

Nutrition at day care

Healthy food is about much more than what is actually on the plate. It’s also about education: getting children really interested in eating healthy food. This is why we always have a pleasant time eating and drinking together at the table.

Seeing someone eat, makes you want to eat too! In this way, we want to help develop healthy habits. Learn more about how we approach nutrition at KinderRijk.

Would you like to come and take a look?

On the location pages, you can take a virtual tour from the comfort of your home. For an in-person tour, we’d be delighted to invite you after you’ve received a placement offer from us.

Activities and rituals at day care

At Day care, preschool care, and after-school care, we have scheduled times for activities with your child. Children are not obligated to participate, but we do encourage your child to try new things. We challenge children to actively learn and find solutions on their own. This way, your child learns to understand and appreciate themselves, enhancing their motivation, self-confidence, and independence.

The pedagogical staff also occasionally take a stroll to a child-friendly destination near the location for children aged 0-4. By taking a ‘stroll,’ we expand the children’s world. Examples of strolls include observing a construction project in the neighborhood or simply getting some fresh air. Taking strolls is part of our range of activities. We inform parents about this through the parent app.
