Day care centre De 7 Dwergen stimulates the development of children by taking a play activity as a starting point. In doing so, they are challenged to develop themselves in all areas, under the supervision of our pedagogical staff. They play a central role in this process, as they continuously introduce new impulses during the play activities with the children. In addition, it is good to keep their interest, offer meaningful activities and to always make the right choices in game and development materials.
