We cooperate with VUMC Kinderstad. We go there regularly with the children to attend a theatre performance. We do activities with the children based on themes and adapted to different age-groups which fit in with their interest and development phase. These range from games and sport, creative activities, theatre and dance, making music and cooking.
Our building is transparent and cosy and the rooms of the groups are equipped with furniture and materials that match with the ages of the children who use it. Every room has its own ‘activity corners’. We pursue a policy of “open doors”: literally all doors are open and the children are free to choose to which room they want to go to do an activity. We bring the children to and collect them from various clubs (theatre, dance yoga, making jewelry, cooking workshop, football) organized and carried out in the building by Dynamo.
Type of childcare
- 2 groups for children from 4 to 6,5

Picking up from school
We pick the children up on foot from the Twaalfde Montessori De Stern and de Openbare basisschool De Merkelbach.
Partou is located in a multipurpose center in Amsterdam Buitenveldert in the A.J. Ernststraat, opposite shopping mall Groot Gelderlandplein. The building is large and modern and houses apart from us two elementary schools, a playground for toddlers, a day care center, activities organisation Dynamo and a health center (OKC). The play rooms are large and situated divided over two floors. We also have access to the gym of the school.
Every group has its own outdoors playground. They are large and much material to play with is available: a sand pit, small bicycles and autopeds, a climbing frame and lots of space for skating/
skateboarding. In the neighborhood there are several parks (Amstelpark and Beatrixpark) and public playgrounds.
Our team consists of qualified pedagogical employees who pay a lot of attention to your child.
