Big Ben Kids provides an educational day care programme for babies and young children up to the age of five. We offer a full day of care (by Dutch law a maximum of 10 hours per day) from Monday to Friday.
At Big Ben Kids, we place children in groups based on age. In the morning, the children take part in our carefully designed preschool programme. The activities provided during the afternoon are less structured. You can rest assured that your child will have lots of stimulating, fun experiences in a safe and caring environment.
Big Ben Kids is aware that preschool is a very important time. That’s why we use a child-centred, teacher-guided approach and base our preschool programme on the Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines for children up to the age of five years. Preschool at Big Ben Kids runs from 8:30 to 14:00 each day at our Wassenaar location.
Big Ben Kids after school care programme (including our Holiday Camp) is for children from four to 12 years of age who attend various schools in The Hague and Wassenaar. As a parent, you don’t have to worry about anything: we pick up the children from school and bring them to the Big Ben Kids after school club.
The forest after school club is a great way to stimulate your child’s natural curiosity. The children experience exciting, challenging adventures in the great outdoors. They go on treasure hunts and GPS walks and build huts, chop wood, make campfires and fly kites.
Our Holiday Camp is a brilliant experience. The daily field trips and activities mean that the children may well have the best holiday of their lives! Our holiday camp programme is offered during all school holidays to children from four to 12 years of age and the fee covers daily field trips, entrance tickets, transport, workshops and snacks as well as warm and healthy homemade lunches and dinners.
A warm and stimulating atmosphere that allows children to grow safely and develop.
Loving and caring teachers
The staff at Big Ben Kids are 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 team 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 takes care of children. We always go an extra step to help families, trying to bring everyone together to form a close-knit international community.
At Big Ben Kids, we serve two warm and healthy, homemade meals each day. The children are also given nutritious snacks with lots of fruit and raw vegetables. Parents receive our menu weekly, so they are aware of what the children are being served. The children can also 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 buildings with the children, dancing, making music, learn the Dutch language, go to the gym, library, swimming pool, field trips…
Learning through play
Our curriculum is carefully designed so that the children don’t even notice how much they learn each day. For them, it’s all about playing and having fun!
