A green oasis in the middle of the city
Our locations are characterized by their bright, cosy atmosphere and spacious, green outdoor play areas. Kinderdagverblijf (Day care) Skippy is located in the heart of old Kralingen. Kinderdagverblijf (Day care) Marijke is located on the edge of Kralingen between green sports fields and a playground with ample parking space. The parking lot is accessible to all baby and toddler groups and after-school care as well.

They prefer to stay every day…
A day in the life
A preview of what a day is like at our childcare locations
NSO de Speeltuin (after-school care): Relax with a cracker or some fruit after a long day at school while the teacher listens to your day, have fun at the Speeltuin (playground) or exercise at Excelsior training grounds, partake in a dance/craft/cooking workshop or just chill outside with some friends in the playground or at the Scouting grounds. This is what an afternoon looks like at our after-school care.
MPK (half day care for toddlers): Playing in the grass with twigs, going on an adventure through the jungle or the Arboretum, tasks and activities with Montessori materials, sitting in a circle to learn how to listen to each other and to learn how to “do it yourself”. A morning of playing and learning flies by at our Montessori Peutergroep Kralingen!
KDV Marijke and KDV Skippy (day care): Making sand cookies in the sandbox, building a hut with sticks that you’ve gathered yourself, singing songs, biking and exploring the garden, coming together to enjoy a sandwich, a warm meal or fruit… And when you’ve worn yourself out, relax and listen to a book being read aloud as you slowly start to doze off… This is what a day could look like at one of our day cares!
Each child is assigned a mentor. The mentor is a pedagogical employee who works in your child’s group. The mentor periodically discusses your child’s development.
Room to play
Exploration and discovery are central to us. There is much to discover in our unique outdoor play areas. At our after-school care, the words relaxation, outdoors and sports are key. After a long day at school, the children can choose where, what and with whom they want to play.
Every group works with an iPad, which is used to provide parents with updates via our parent portal. Parents can find information regarding their child’s day, photos and activities in the parent portal.
We offer a daily sandwich lunch. Parents also have the option to choose for a warm meal for their child. Fresh fruit and healthy snacks are offered daily at all locations.
