The Toverboom, Natural, Conscious, Child Care

The Toverboom is a small daycare facility with a conscious vision. We’ve chosen to have no more than two groups consisting of 10 and 12 children and to work above the required ratio. With more staff available for the children, we hope to truly offer every child what he or she needs and ensure a peaceful environment for them to explore.

The aim at the Toverboom is to recreate an atmosphere that resembles family life. By working with vertical groups (0 – 4 years) the youngest of the children can learn from the older ones. In return, the older children can further develop their caring skills. We include the children with many household chores like baking bread, harvesting vegetables from our vegetable garden, sweeping, doing laundry and much more.

Our pedagogical policy is inspired by the most valuable insights of different pedagogues, which include: Rudolf Steiner, Thomas Gordon, Emmi Pikler, Maria Montessori and Alfie Kohn. In our pedagogical plan we explain how these educators influence our policy. You can find the plan here.

The Toverboom team

“I think this is the best place for children, parents and employees that I can imagine! Every child is really seen, and together we form a loving network around the children who come there. I love taking my two-year-old daughter there and I enjoy working there every day. “❤

Warm words

"De visie van de Toverboom sluit aan bij onze visie van opvoeden waarin het volgen van het kind centraal staat. De medewerkers gaan zeer liefdevol om met de kindjes en laten de kindjes slapen hoe zij dit ook thuis zijn gewend. Mijn dochter was in het begin erg verdrietig en ook daar werd een oplossing voor gevonden door haar veel te dragen in de Tula."

Stephanie, de moeder van Lova

"Femke, flexibel en relaxed, doet haar best om tegemoet te komen aan alle verschillende wensen van ouders. Het was mijn wens om mijn kind de eerste keren met papa of mama erbij te laten wennen. Dat kon, en we werden door iedereen met open armen ontvangen. Zo heb ik met eigen ogen kunnen zien dat het vooruitstrevende beleid hier niet alleen uit mooie woorden bestaat, maar ook echt geleefd wordt hier."

Hester, mama van Jinte

"We moved our son to De Toverboom from another daycare and it was the best decision we could ever have made. De Toverboom is outstanding. The team is friendly and caring; the children are all treated with warmth and love. The focus on a family like setting has seen my son thrive there."

Dawn, mother of Isaac

"We really appreciate all the effort they put (and keep putting) into helping our daughter to adjust to a new environment"
