The after school programme (BSO) is intended for primary school children between the ages of 4 and 13. We offer different services within the BSO:
VSO: pre-school care. We open our doors at 7:00 and we take the children to school on time. During VSO children can eat the breakfast they brought in and play quietly.
TSO: Inter-School Care. Children are collected from school at 12:00 by the pedagogical staff members. They are taken to the BSO to eat some lunch. After lunch the children are taken back to school by the staff members.
NSO: after-school care. Children are collected from school by the pedagogical staff members. They can be cared for until 19:00.
Holiday care: during the school holidays children can be cared for at the BSO from 7:00 to 19:00. They are offered a varied day programme.
't Koninkrijkje offers responsible childcare. Children are placed into fixed groups and each group has their own space. Within these so-called basic groups, children can play in an environment that is recognisable, safe and familiar to them, under the guidance and care of pedagogical staff members.
The BSO is divided into three vertical basic groups:
Knights and Noblewomen: for children aged 4-13. This group has a maximum of 20 children.
Kings and Queens: for children aged 4-13. This group has a maximum of 20 children.
Princes and Princesses: for children aged 4-13. This group has a maximum of 6 children.
Group room and activities
The BSO rooms are located on the first floor. The rooms are bright and fresh and they each have their own name: The Castle, The Palace, The Fortress and the Tower.
Each room contains materials for different age groups. The rooms are arranged in such a way that children can play in different corners. There is also a seating area where they can sit and read a book for example.
The Fortress has also been set up as a creative area. There are low and high tables and there is enough room to eat, colour or play games together. In 'the Tower' the children can do their homework. There is a computer in this room that can be used for lessons or games.
The children are offered daily activities from an activity plan that has monthly themes. They can choose music activities, movement activities, handicrafts, cooking activities and so on. The children play outside if the weather permits it. During the holidays a daytime programme is offered and various excursions are organised.
Nutrition and Care
Pedagogical staff members take individual needs, special wishes or eating habits into consideration. We provide drinks, lunch, snacks and a fresh hot meal. All this is included in the price.
Getting used to it
't Koninkrijkje has an acclimatisation policy, so you and your child can familiarise yourselves with the new surroundings, the group space, the pedagogical staff members and the other children. The familiarisation days always take place after the contract has started. We use 1 familiarisation afternoon for the BSO. As a parent/carer you can plan this day together with the pedagogical staff members. Placements always start on the 1st or the 16th of the month.
You can register your child for the different BSO services. Please note: you cannot apply for childcare benefits for the TSO hours. Actual placement takes place after a placement agreement has been signed.
We pick children up for the NSO from the following schools:
- KBS de Contrabas
- OBS de Catamaran
- PCB Het Baken
- IKC Cornelis Haak
- KBS De Pioneer
