Toddler playgroup (2 – 4 years)

The toddler playgroup is for children between the ages of 2 and 4 years. Qualified Infant/Toddler Preschool teachers provide a structured and safe atmosphere, allowing children to play and have fun.

Out-of-School Care (4 -12 years)

Out-of-School Care (BSO) provided by Kinderopvang Walcheren is a great place for primary school children. The Out-of-school Care consists of childcare before school starts, after school hours and during the holidays.

Childminder / homecare (0 – 12 years)

Homecare with one of our qualified childminders is a flexibale, small-scale way of care in a home-like atmosphere for children aged between 0 and 13 years. The care is at the home of the childminder and is tailored to the wishes of the parent, childminder and child. Homecare is easily combined with one of our other provided ways of childcare. It is possible to receive childcare allowance (Kinderopvangtoeslag) for homecaring.
