The building “De Engel” is a monumental building which has been transformed into a spacious and light daycare center. The groups offer the children all the space to develop safely with the help of the nicest pedagogical staff.
Going out for activities is regularly on the menu; for example, when possible, a visit is made to the market, Artis, or the Funenpark. The Municipality of Amsterdam intends to open a discovery playground of more than 1500 m² adjacent to the “De Engel” building; a place where children can play to their heart’s content.
‘De Engel’ daycare center has three baby groups and three toddler groups.
Every Tuesday and Thursday, a pedagogical employee organizes ‘toddler plus’ activities for the children of the toddler groups. In small groups of 4 to 5 children, the pedagogical staff member supervises activities that are in line with the development and experience of, in particular, the oldest toddlers. These activities are educational and contribute to the development of the children and are especially great fun.
The spacious garden offers the children plenty of room to play.
A little party:
A party every day; that is what the teachers at De Engel provide.
Trees on the groups:
Monumental building where two beautiful trees have been placed on the two toddler groups.
Close to Artis:
Unique location, close to Artis, the Maritime Museum and the Funenpark.
The spaces at De Engel are characterized by the spacious groups that are equipped with beautiful windows, so that natural light is well present. The baby and toddler groups are all equipped with bedrooms so that each child has his / her own bed.
The groups are arranged in such a way that children are encouraged to play in his / her own way and pace. The rooms are perfect for various activities, such as crafts, music, dancing, but also enough space to organize a workshop for the children. Think of yoga, music & dance or tastings for the children.
