Day-care and after school care 't Knuffeltje has been an established concept in Delft for more than 20 years.
With an inspiring vision, an educational approach and a close group of permanent leaders, who work for many years at Day-care ‘t Knuffeltje in Delft, we provide quality care with passion for children every day for children from zero to 13 years.
Our team is happy to introduce themselves:
Director / Educational Coach
As a graduate educator and mother of two little children, I enthusiastically started a nursery 20 years ago. First alone and later with a team of dedicated leaders I have been expressing our pedagogical ideas and mission every day. I’m very proud of it. During my studies, I have been inspired by a number of educational ideas from well-known pedagogues and developmental psychologists. These ideas are now also underpinned by the pedagogical policy of ‘t Knuffeltje in Delft. We take the task of contributing to the upbringing of children very seriously. And we would like it any other way. We cannot wait to meet you and your baby.
Policy and Quality
If you come to see us, I will gladly lead you around. In addition to the general policy matters, I take care of the daily schedule of the children and the leaders and I will be your point of contact if you need an extra day or when you have questions about policy or quality.
I am open to dialogue with our parent committee and individual parents when it comes to quality improvement. I do not consider feedback, ideas and even complaints as something negative but as an opportunity to achieve even better childcare. As a mother of two children I understand very well that you should also ask children for their opinion. And we do that a lot at Knuffeltje. A happy child is to me the best quality measure.
I hope to meet you at day-care and after school care ’t Knuffeltje in Delft. Call or e-mail us for an appointment.
Playing together and learning together in a familiar and caring environment is what I want to offer the children. I am very happy to see how the children are discovering more and more every day at our day-care. Especially the exploring together I find very important for children in my group. It’s very nice to see how the group is developing. I often just play together with them or enjoy observing how much joy they are having together. Would your child to come play with us?
Educational employee / Educational coach
With my educational background, I often work on the projects and themes of childcare ‘t Knuffeltje. It’s a lot of fun to look at a topic like autumn, winter or counting together with the kids in a lot of different ways. Create a new challenge every day for my 3+ group has been my personal goal for years. I stimulate the children to explore, discover and learn just a little bit more during each activity. I definitely do this in a playful and casual way making sure the children are enjoying themselves. Will your child learn with us?
The most beautiful moments in my work I find in the enthusiasm of the children when we are reading a book together or singing a song. It’s gratifying work when the little ones have learned a new word or recognize a picture of an animal we saw at the children farm. I try to convey my energy and enthusiasm to my group of children so we discover the world together. Will your child join us too?
As an after school leader, I understand that children want to relax and feel at ease when they come to ‘t Knuffeltje. I provide a good atmosphere for the group simply by enjoying the kids. We like to chat with them after school, play a game or do homework together. I let the children participate. Child participation is very important because it helps children learn to take decisions themselves, to develop their own opinions and to respect opinions of others. So we hold occasionally a child-meeting to decide what activities do the kids like to do in the holiday or which material they would like to purchase. Come and take a look at the after school care ‘t Knuffeltje.
I really enjoy working with babies. At this age they are dependent on us and they enjoy our presence. I find playing with the babies and caring for them very rewording. In the other groups it is very nice to see how the children grow every time a bit bigger and wiser.
For many years I have taken care of the youngest children at the kindergarten ‘t Knuffeltje in Delft. It’s so nice to see how a little baby, who joins the group, is getting bigger and more independent. I believe that you just have to give such a little baby a lot of love. Because I am a warm and patient person, I am very pleased to share this with my babies. I give them a warm feeling. They must first feel safe and familiar with me to develop further. I will also warmly welcome your baby to my baby group.
