The building of Partou has three floors. There are seven basic groups: three for babies on the groundfloor, two for toddlers on the first floor and two for toddlers on the second. There is a large storage for buggies and carrier cycles. Every group is named after a street in the neighbourhood of Partou called De Pijp. Every child is part of a steady basic group. Partou is a fairly new center. That is why it has a fresh and tidy appearance. All the furniture and playing materials are new.
Our center has an adjacent playground with a variety of natural elements. The children can make a mess with water and sand to their heart’s content. There are a slide, tree trunks and a tunnel to include in exciting cycle routes. The site has differences in height and there is a large blackboard on which children can make chalk drawings. The outdoors materials are stored in a shed. De Pijp is a busy neighbourhood. There are, however, spots which are easily accessible to children. Once a week we go out and make a trip in the area, for instance to the large public playground in the Sarphati park.
Our team consists of ten pedagogical employees of various backgrounds and educations from MBO (intermediate vocational education) to university. Every team member has her own special talent to employ in our center in the field of for instance music, creativity, sports or crafting.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 7.30 to 18.30 o’clock.
Accessibility & parking
Our childcare center is a new center right in the middle of the Amsterdam district De Pijp. The Albert Cuyp streetmarket is within a five minutes walking distance. You can reach us easily by bike or on foot. You can leave your buggy in our large storage room. Near the center there are several public transport stops: trams 4, 10, 24 and 25 stop close by. In the mornings parking your car is no problem in the Pijp; in the afternoons you may find it more difficult to find a parking space.
