With us your child is one step ahead of other children, because
• we carry out the Early Childhood Education (VVE) program Piramide. This is an overall program in which all stages of your child’s development are dealt with
• all our activities are based on special themes
• we cooperate closely with other organizations in the child care sector.
The toddler groups use the VVE-program Piramide. This program is based on yearly recurring themes which each present new words to the children. We repeat these words regularly during the period of the theme gradually increasing the degree of difficulty in a playful manner. At the end of the period the children have become familiar with a great many new words.
We also work with Alert4U. This is a national program that brings educational expertise to child care organizations. It provides the means to monitor your child and stimulate his development. If the development of your child is lagging behind, we recognize the symptoms in an early stage and know then where to ask for the appropriate support. We work closely together with other experts in child rearing like Jeugd en Opvoedhulp, Okido, ‘t Kabouterhuis and the Consultatiebureau (Child Health Care Center). They support us with their knowledge.
Type of childcare
There are five groups:
Two baby groups with children between 0 and 2 years old (Minnie Mouse and Bambi)
Three toddler groups with children between 2 and 4 years old (Kwekkies, Donald Duck an Micky Mouse)
At the moment only two toddler groups are open. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday the babies of the two groups form one group.
The number of pedagogical employees in the baby groups is one for five children; in the toddler groups there one employee for seven children. The work according to a steady schedule divide in an early shift, a middle shift and a late shift.
Partou is located in a spacious building that stands in a quiet, green area in a low-rise neighbourhood
in Amsterdam Zuidoost. The entrance of the center leads to a large hall with much daylight, which is the reception area for parents and children in the morning. It contains a play house with a slide and low tables and chairs where you - together with your son or daughter - can read a book, make a puzzle or a drawing.
Our playground is surrounded by green. We have a large umbrella and often have a pic nic in its shade. There is enough space for using the glide and the many tricycles that we have. A fun and safe place for our children to play. Not far from our center are the Bijlmer Park and the Bijlmerpark theatre which we both visit regularly. And if we want to mingle with chicken, horses or goats we take the children to children’s farm Ganzenhoef.
Our team consists of qualified pedagogical employees who pay a lot of attention to your child. The composition of the team is divers. All team members have their own special talents. One of them coaches the children in music; one is quite fond of visual arts and photography and another has a sports’educational background and gives physical education.
