Hundreds of local crèches, preschools and other childcare organisations operate under the banner of KidsFoundation. By now several labels have associated themselves with KidsFoundation, and we are still growing. We work together to strengthen the most valued childcare network in the Netherlands.
With more than 220 childcare centres, preschools and afterschool care locations, Smallsteps is one of the largest childcare organisations in the Netherlands – and yet it still feels like home, thanks to its enthusiastic staff. They don’t wear a cape or have superpowers, but they know exactly what children need in order to grow. They are there when children fall and get up again during their many exploratory outings. All over again every day. The whole year.
Koningskinderen’s daycare centres have all been given their own fairytale name, such as King Lijsterbaard, The Little Prince, and The Snow Queen. Fairytales emanate an emotional, social, and creative power, which is why they’re a permanent part of Koningskinderen’s pedagogical working method. Koningskinderen aims to stimulate children aged up to 12 years in all aspects of their development. In addition to regular childcare, the locations in ‘t Gooi also offer compact, flexible, and international childcare – so there’s something for every parent.

Childcare is about more than just hosting and care. It is a place where children get the chance to express themselves in a hundred languages. For childcare organisation KITS in the city of Groningen the focus lies on children’s talents. How do children discover who they are, what they can do, and what makes them happy? Inspired by the pedagogical vision of Reggio Emilia and Emi Pikler, KITS offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities that focus on self-knowledge.
