What does Toddler care mean?
Learning by playing
Het Steigertje offers high-quality toddler care (previously nursery) for young children aged 2 to 4. We prepare your children in a playful way for the primary school. When your child goes to toddler care, the step to group 1 is less great. For both child and parent. Learning in a playful way on the basis of the Uk & Puk programme is our main focus. With us, toddlers are given the chance to develop optimally. Your child learns to play as well as share with other children. In addition to social skills, we pay much attention to language and arithmetic skills. Your child becomes acquainted with words, numbers, colours and shapes via various activities, such as singing, dancing, crafts and being read aloud to.
Two day parts of the nursery
All toddlers have the right to two day parts (six hours) of preschool education per week in Rotterdam. We offer toddler care at our location Nieuwstraat five days a week in the morning from 8.15 to 11.15 hrs and in the afternoon from 12.00 to 15.00 hrs. At our other locations we have different times. For the toddler care, parents pay an income-based contribution. As a working parent, you can buy extra hours as you need them, on top of the standard six hours.
Toddler care with a referral
Children with a referral from the CJG youth and family centre have the right to six hours of extra care. The extra hours for referred children are largely refunded by the municipality of Rotterdam.
