Koningskinderen provides an unique international day care facility at our site “De Gouden Sleutel” in Hilversum! We offer high-quality services with skilled English speaking nannies in a positive environment for children in the age of 0 to 4 years. This service is focused on expat families and all other parents who want their children to learn and speak the English language during day care, so they will be prepared for (international) school and a global orientated life.
At the International Day Care groups, we only speak English with children and their parents, not Dutch or any other language. Our pedagogical programme, including toys, reading books and other development-minded activities is of course accurate adapted to this special facility. International Day Care can be compared with our regular child care service and has the same price list.
Koningskinderen aims to maximally support and stimulate children in their total development and optimally facilitate parents in enjoying parenthood and the unworried planning of their agenda. We invested heavily in optimizing our full service offering and outstanding pedagogical concept, which now makes us unique in the Dutch child care market.
Besides the many years of experience, some elements of the renowned anthroposophist Rudolph Steiner are used in the distinctive approach of Koningskinderen. The programme provides a good basis for the individual child to enhance its learning skills. Koningskinderen pays attention to the emotional, social and cognitive development of children which are a.o. stimulated through the broad offering of creative activities, music, sport, theatre, animal farm, movement games and storytelling.
The qualified pedagogical staff monitors the development of children closely and is supported and trained by a professional pedagogue, location manager and artistic therapist. The staff-child ratio is primarily driven by the need of children to ensure each child gets the individual care and attention it needs. We use only high quality products and toys and focus on biological food, including a warm dish during lunch time. We of course take excellent care of security and hygiene.
