After school care

   

After school care is fun!

When school is out, your child arrives at after school care in a familiar and safe environment. Our enthusiastic staff members create a fun afternoon together with the kids. On Monday we might build a fort, on Thursday we might bake a carrot cake. After school care is always more fun with friends. The young kids make new friends, the older kids hang out together or alone with a book, magazine or music. There’s enough space to play with friends or work on an activity. And there’s always time to relax alone if that’s what your child needs.

An array of activities

Our staff members organize fun activities for and with the kids based on rotating themes. For these development-oriented activities we find inspiration in our activity library ‘Doenkids.’ We also organize fun workshops for the kids such as street dance or learning about reptiles. Shortly before the summer vacation we distribute our very own Kind & Co activity book so that the kids can continue to have after school care fun even when they’re at home.

A typical afternoon at after school care

School’s out: jacket on and after school care, here we come! The staff members pick the kids up and off they go. Once there, the kids enjoy a snack and have the chance to share about their school day. Then it’s time for an activity. The kids are involved as much as possible in planning, organizing and performing activities, and it’s always their choice to participate or not. When you pick your child up at the end of the day, a staff member will let you know how your child’s afternoon was.

Practical information

You can choose from a number of packages. You can find the price per package here. Actual childcare costs are income-dependent. Our calculation tool helps you get an indication of your net childcare costs.

After school care hours of operation are linked to your school’s closing time. Most after school care locations are open until 18:30. If school is closed for a teacher training day (‘studiedag’ in Dutch) or a vacation, our locations are open from 7:30 – 18:30. Please check your location’s webpage for exact opening hours.

You can read about our vision in our educational policy. It provides a framework for the way we deliver our services. In this policy we have established our principles and primary objectives that form the base of how we care for children at our locations. You can read about what this looks like in practice in your location’s educational plan.

If you have questions about after school care, please read our FAQ’s here (Dutch).

A number of our after school care locations have Nova groups for children who benefit from extra attention (for example due to ASS, hearing impairment, etc.) These groups have a maximum of 6 children from 4 to 13 years old so that more intensive caregiving is possible. Click here for more (Dutch) information on our Nova groups.

At a number of locations we offer before-school childcare from 7:30 – 8:30. If you need to leave early for work, we will make sure that your child gets to school on time in a relaxed fashion. On your location’s webpage you can see if they offer before-school care.
