Big Ben Kids is aware that preschool is a very important time. We want to provide the best possible experiences for your child. That’s why we use a child-centred, teacher-guided approach and base our preschool programme on the Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines. Preschool at Big Ben Kids runs from 8:30 to 14:00 each day at our Wassenaar location.
At Big Ben Kids preschool, your child is placed in a group with children of a similar age and each morning revolves around our carefully structured programme. We place special emphasis on a caring environment with familiar faces. Your child is guaranteed to have many stimulating experiences that promote development thanks to our carefully designed education programme along with the less structured activities we provide.
We recommend a minimum two days per week attendance for our preschool. A healthy snack and a warm homemade lunch are served during the morning. The price also covers the cost of nappies.
Our preschool programme is specially designed for children up to the age of five years and one month. It includes:
– Developmentally appropriate and rigorous, high-quality curriculum – Continuous monitoring of children’s progress – Professional development for childcare professionals, including mentoring
Our curriculum has been especially developed with expat and multilingual children in mind and is based on learning through play. This approach has been shown to lead to significant growth in a child’s intellectual and social development, both of which are critical to future academic success.

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!
