Big Ben Kids after school care programme (which includes our Holiday Camp) is for children from four to 12 years of age who attend various schools in The Hague and Wassenaar. You can leave everything to us. We pick up the children from school and bring them to the Big Ben Kids after school club where they experience a homely atmosphere with a personal touch. It’s a familiar place where the children can’t wait to throw their bags in the corner and take part in the many fun activities. The children also sit together to enjoy a warm and healthy homemade meal, which is included in the price.
At Big Ben Kids, we don’t look after children; we look out for the family too. We understand you may have a busy schedule and therefore offer many additional activities to ensure your child is motivated and happy. Please visit our ‘extra activities’ page for more information. You can find out which of the activities listed are offered at your chosen location by contacting the centre.
A warm and stimulating atmosphere that allows children to grow and develop safely.
Loving and caring teachers
The staff at Big Ben Kids consists of passionate childcare professionals who love their work. They always do their best to ensure the children are safe, happy and fulfilled.
A truly international place
Our staff members come from all over the world, just like the families we serve. We are therefore acutely aware that our centres should be much more than places that simply care for children. We always go the extra mile to help families and try to bring everyone together to form a close-knit international community.
At Big Ben Kids, we serve two warm, healthy, homemade meals each day. The snacks are nutritious as well, with lots of fruits and raw vegetables. Parents receive our menu every week, so they are aware of what the children are being served. We also encourage the children to tell us what their favourite meal is; we listen and take their preferences into consideration.
Lots of extra activities
Next to the well-structured curriculum, we always like to do more! Decorating the childcare centres with the children, dancing, making music, learning the Dutch language, going to the library, the swimming pool, on field trips…
Learning through play
Our curriculum is carefully designed in such a way that the children don’t even notice how much they learn each day. For them, it’s all about playing and having fun!
