Toddlers and pre-schoolers aged 2 to 4 come to play at our playgroups at least two half-days a week. Below you find a summary of our options and rates.
Our playgroups are covered by the Childcare Law. This means that you can qualify for either a childcare allowance or a subsidy from the municipality. This depends on your personal situation. Look here for the possibilities in Hilversum and in Soest.
At our playgroups, toddlers and preschoolers come to play 2 half-days a week.

We work with the early childhood education programme, which focuses on the Dutch language skills, familiarization with mathematics and a child’s social-emotional development. This programme enables us to identify and remedy developmental delays at an early stage. Bink uses the Uk & Puk method.
Extended toddler and preschooler care is an extension of the playgroup morning. You can bring your child from 8:00 and pick him / her up at 13:00. This type of care is possible at playgroup Montessori Centrum. Extended toddler and preschooler care comes under the Childcare Act, which means that parents may be eligible for childcare allowance.
At two of our playgroups in Hilversum we work with the Montessori Method. The basic principle is that the child is an individual with his / her own talent and character, who goes through the various stages of development in his / her own pace. We work in close cooperation with the Montessori school. Our Montessori playgroups are: playgroup Montessori Centrum and playgroup Montessori-Zuid.
