One pedagogic employees take care of 3 baby's each with a maximum of 12 baby's in one group.
In our light and spacious baby areas, all is arranged for baby's to have a great day by discovering and exploring the world! We offer daycare for baby's aged 6 weeks and older. We have a maximum of 3 children for each professional carer. We make sure that there's lots of contact between your little one and the professionals. We chat to our babies all day long! For example, our professionals will help your child to explain the emotions that they see; "you like that!" or "you are tired.." And also they will name all objects and body parts so that your baby will to expand his or her vocabulary fast. Did you know, that the IQ of a child that has been offered a lot of lanquage in the first three years of his life, is higher than that of children that haven't been offered that much language? Next to the lanquage development, als, we stimulate the motor skills by giving the opportunity to move , crawl, climb and pull up a lot. Our professionals will, for example, put a toy just out of reach of your child to stimulate movement. When your child is almost one year old, there will be an interset in playing next to other children the same age, and observing the other child. By doing so, your child will learn a lot about social behaviour, emotions, and communication. Therefore, or professionals will stimulate playing next to each other at this age.
"Dreumesgroep" (12-30 months)
One pedagogic employees take care of 6 children each with a maximum of 16 children in one group.
At our dreumesgroup, there is a buzzing atmosphere! These little ones are very busy exploring the world apund them and they do so with all their senses! What seems chaotic at times, is actually hard work lo tern and discover new things! Throwing toys in a basket and taking them out again just to start over, of walking around endlessly while dragging a toy along; all activities bring new information to the child and learn them about materials, weight, cause and consequense, social behaviour, and so much more. By offering short group activities, our professionals lay the foundation for learning later on. At this age, children develop a sense of their own will. That is why they say "no! " so often! Our professionals will therefore offer options as much as possible. And they allow the exlorational behaviour as long as there is no danger or harm to others involved.
"Peutergroep" (30-48 maanden)
One pedagogic employees take care of 8 children each with a maximum of 16 children in one group.
Some locations have vertical groups. Children 0-4 are all in one group. Depending on the ages, the maximum number of children is determined.
Toddlers will show a true explosion in their vocabulary! Therefore, the love to chat. And ask lots of questions! A lot of activities we offer are developed around language. We read stories, we sing, we do roleplay, we offer games. Our professionals will join in on the fun and follow the fantasy of your child. By offering small suggestions, they can stimulate the play to a higher level of educational value. For example, by offering extra materials, by setting an example for communication and playing together, of by introducing another child. At all our toddler groups, we offer the method "Uk en Puk" , which provides activities for the group, for smaller groups and individual activities, all around a certain theme.
