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 provide a safe and caring environment and the children are placed in same-age peer groups. We believe children develop better when they learn and play with others their own age. The children take part in our carefully designed preschool programme in the morning, while activities provided during the afternoon are less structured. It’s not long before our staff become familiar faces with whom your child develops a bond of trust. Aside from all the stimulating, fun activities provided at the centre, the children also enjoy warm and healthy homemade lunches and dinners together.
The teachers of Big Ben Kids’ curriculum have all got a degree in early childhood education. They are focused on encouraging children’s self esteem through developmentally appropriate practice and activities that help ready them for their future school career.
Our children also take part in a number of child-friendly activities taught by professionally qualified instructors, including: cooking, piano lessons, music and movement, dancing, and arts and crafts. Big Ben Kids is a truly international and multicultural place. We welcome children from all over the world!

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!
