Childcare from 0 to 12 years

At the Bear Boat, children from 0 to 12 years old can play, learn and discover. The youngest children from 0 to 4 years are welcome in the daycare center. Children aged 2 to 4 years can explore and play together in our half-day care: the toddler group.

From the age of 4, school children can go to our after-school care before and after school and during holidays. Children can even have breakfast with us! The dedicated childcare staff will take your child to school, be present on the school playground during lunchtime, and pick up your child from school in the afternoon. Children are welcome to play, explore, and relax after a long school day with us. We pick up children from the Samen Één primary school and the Josefschool.

This way, your child from 0 to 12 years old can stay in the same familiar place. 

Together is more fun!

We engage in many group activities; we visit grandparents at the nursing home, have music lessons, and participate in toddler gym. Our experienced team creates a cozy and trustworthy environment for the children. This helps them feel safe, have fun, and develop.

The branch manager tells

Location manager Natasja van Amsterdam: ‘KC De Berenboot is an old primary school, a characteristic building with a story. Children are given the space to explore and develop with us. As location manager, I find it important that the childcare staff have fun with the children, encourage them in their development, and together make each day enjoyable.”

Request tour

Would you like to step inside, meet our employees, and get a feel for the atmosphere? You can! We would be happy to give you a tour of our location.

However, we can only schedule a date for this once we have actual space available at our location. This way we avoid disappointment. Currently, we have waitlists for (almost) all of our locations and there are no openings available. Therefore, we recommend registering your child first so that you can be added to the waitlist.
