Comforting and proffesional day care
Kinderdagverblijf (Day care) Skippy has four groups of full day care; two baby groups (0 to 2 years) and two toddler groups (2 to 4 years). These groups, so-called horizontal groups, are divided according to age. Research shows that children in separate infant and toddler groups score higher on involvement and well-being. In horizontal groups, children talk, play and explore more together.
In terms of daily rhythm and supervision, horizontal groups allow pedagogical employees to align the needs and interests of the age group they work with. Group furnishing is adjusted accordingly so that, for example, the youngest children feel more secure, and tranquillity, hygiene and safety are guaranteed. The furnishing for the toddler groups is more challenging and gives the children plenty of space to move around. We adhere to a maximum number of children that attend the day care only once a week. This quota minimalizes diversification for the children, maximizes the stability in the group and reduces the workload for our pedagogical employees.
Sufficient exercise ensures good health. Group activities are excellent for developing social skills. SKK believes exercise is important and therefore offers gym sessions for all the toddler groups. Our sports teacher offers exercise lessons one or two times a week, alongside a permanent pedagogical employee!
Garden and roof terrace
On the first floor, the baby groups each have two bedrooms and an adjoining roof terrace. On the ground floor, the toddler groups each have access to a playhouse and direct access to our adventurous garden. The large, green garden has a vegetable garden and plenty of space to play!

Kinderdagverblijf Skippy offers parents the option to purchase a daily warm meal for their child. Parents can choose between a warm meal or the standard sandwich lunch.
