Our care

At our center there is lots to do for children. Once a week we pay special attention to music. And we also read to them or do “beweegkriebels” (movement, play and active lifestyle for children). With special game and play material the children are challenged to exercise. The content of our activities changes with the seasons. In summer the children play with water, the spring inspires us to go and look at chicks, autumn is the time for gathering colourful leaves or wandering through the rain and in the winter we build snowmen.

Going outdoors is what we do frequently. Your child can play in our own garden. But we also take the children out in the wagon for a ride on the university grounds. And every year we organize a trip for all the children and their parents, for instance to the children’s farm or a playground.

Our building

Partou is located in the ‘Aula’ building on the campus of the Erasmus University. The group rooms are large, spacious and well decorated. To your child they are a cosy surrounding where he can develop his skills in a safe and protected way. Because the building has many large windows, there is a lot of light in the rooms.

Our playground

We have our own garden which is shielded by the university building. There is no traffic there and it is always very quiet. The garden challenges your child  to discover nature. There is a small house to play in with the other children and he can ride a bike or a scooter or play ball: there is so much to do. When we go out, we often take sandwiches and drinks with us to have a nice picnic at the picnic tables. In the garden there are also a slide, a tractor tyre with woodchips underneath, seesaws, skippy balls, a sand pit, an Indian tepee made of willow branches and a natural garden with shells and water. The campus of the Erasmus University is developing rapidly. On it a public park is under construction. When it will be finished we can take the children there for a nice walk. But of course Rotterdam also offers a lot of opportunities for trips like going to playgrounds, a children’s farm or the zoo.

Our team

Our team consists of qualified pedagogical employees who pay a lot of attention to your child. The team members coach the children in several fields like music, “Beweegkriebels” and reading.
