Children are a valuable gift and every child is unique. Parents entrust the care for their children to us. Christian childcare centre Het Kroontje considers this a special task and wants to fulfil this in a correct way. Obviously, the children will get the practical care they need but even more important is that this care is offered in a loving way. Our qualified pedagogical employees know the children well and establish a relationship with the children. The development of the child’s own personality, talents and qualities is the focal point within childcare. The children are allowed to point out where their wishes and preferences lie when choosing activities. At the same time, we also want to challenge the children to try new activities and to adopt new skills. Every child is welcome with us and will be seen and heard!
Our hourly rate is € 7,85 (price level 2019). This hourly rate is converted into a fixed amount per month, so the same amount will be paid every month. We are open 52 weeks per year.
The monthly amount is determined by multiplying the number of days per week by 52 (weeks per year) and dividing this outcome by 12 (months).

Babies and, where appropriate, also toddlers have their own rhythm in terms of bottle-feeding and sleeping. The individual needs of the child and the possibilities within the care centre will be taken into consideration. In between the regular programme there is enough room for own play and activities or oriented activities will be offered, such as crafts, reading, singing and games often involving the theme which is representative for that period. When the weather is good, the children will be going outside. The children’s diapers will be changed and/or they go on the potty or to the toilet at set times and when needed.
A good start is important for both the child and the parent(s)/caregiver(s). It forms a safe foundation for the further stay at the childcare centre. For that reason, we attach a lot of value to a thorough period of adjustment. We therefore ask parent(s)/caregiver(s) to make some time available during the initial period to come and meet the group and the pedagogical employees together with the child for an hour or so. The child will be allowed to explore the new situation from the safe presence of the parent(s)/caregiver(s).
Two new adjustment appointments will then be scheduled during which parent(s)/caregiver(s) is/are no longer present after the transference and let their child adjust. The first adjustment day lasts a morning; the second adjustment day takes until approx. 15.00 o’clock. Experience shows that this adjustment period runs smoothly for most children, but depending on the age and the character of the child, the duration of the adjustment period can be altered.
In our pedagogical policy plan we express our visions and the objectives. The policy plan forms a framework used by the childcare centre to give substance to the childcare. You can read the policy plan here in full.
