KidsFoundation is a professional partner to all its affiliated local childcare providers. These providers are all able to draw upon each other’s knowledge and experience in order to achieve the highest quality of childcare.
Highest demands in childcare
The local KidsFoundation childcare organisations have to meet the highest requirements concerning safety and expertise. KidsFoundation is the first company that uses a quality label for these strict norms and applies it to their own childcare organisations in the Netherlands.
Lifelong learning and knowledge sharing
KidsFoundation childcare providers learn from each other by sharing knowledge, networks and experience at national and regional expert meetings. Research and practice also go hand in hand within the organisation’s high-grade educational expertise and science team.
Security for parents
KidsFoundation offers parents a sense of continuity and security when it comes to the highest-rated childcare. That’s why KidsFoundation carries out research into what matters to parents, which part childcare plays in their lives and how childcare providers can continue to offer added value to them in a rapidly changing society. As a result, KidsFoundation is proving to be a crucial partner to all parents in The Netherlands.
Independent and local
Within the established frameworks, local KidsFoundation childcare organisations are given a large degree of independence. One of KidsFoundation's most notable organisations is Smallsteps. Smallsteps has over 220 day-care centres and out-of-school childcare facilities in the Netherlands. In addition to Smallsteps, we are also particularly proud of 'Zus en Zo', a magnificent organisation based in the region of Rotterdam with 26 locations. Zus en Zo is an expert in the field of out-of-school activities.
We have noticed that smaller, quality childcare companies would like to join us. We are glad of it. We consider diversity to be very important. As a larger party, you can still learn a lot from their knowledge and experience. Subsequently, we can help with the implementation of the new Dutch IKK law. We are happy to enter into an open and transparent conversation about how we are connected and how we can continue together.Jeanine Lemmens, CEO
