English daycare information
Both locations have five groups; three infant/toddler groups in the age of 10 weeks to 2.5 years and toddler groups in the age of 2 to 4 years.
We work with horizontal groups so that our employees can focus on the relevant age of the group. The group space and materials are geared to the age of the children. In the infant/toddler groups, they need a different environment and atmosphere (peace and safety) than children aged 2 to 4 (more group-oriented activities).
The childcare has specialized baby nanny’s, who know exactly what babies and toddlers need. During this developmental period, the child mainly communicates through body language. Childcare workers respond to this. At Media Kinderopvang in Hilversum your child will grow up together with other children. It learns from an early age to share attention and will never be alone. The naturalness with which our employees deal with very young children ensures that they get into their daily rhythm in a very natural way.
Play together with friends at daycare. Cutting, pasting, painting, making music, reading a book, telling stories, group discussions, playing outside and taking care of each other. Share with each other. Waiting for each other. Learn from each other. Laughing with each other. To (learn) to argue and to make amends. Eating together. Learn to tidy up. These are all skills that toddlers learn with us. Because they grow up together with others, their transition to primary school is smooth and natural.
It is only possible to place a child for a full day and a minimum of 1 day per week. The nursery is open from 7.30 am to 18.30 in extended care.
If the group size and composition of the group allows, it is possible to bring your child extra days. This is done in consultation with the leaders of that group. Additional sessions will be charged separately. You are entitled to one compensation day in if you have a placement of 1 or 2 days a week; or, the right to compensation day if you have a placement of 3 or 4 days a week. This day / days are agreed in consultation with the group leaders.
If the group size and composition of the group allows, it is possible to change your child’s day. This is also allowed for holidays and sickness. This also works in consultation with the leaders of that group. To exchange a day there are no charges. The exchange day takes place within seven days (one week). It is not possible to come a day (extra) and swap it with a day two months later or earlier.
