There are 4 full-day care groups for 0- to 4-year-olds at day care ‘Skippy’; two baby groups (0 – 2 years) and two toddler groups (2 – 4 years).
Staff: Twelve pedagogical workers, a housekeeper and a manager.
At day care ‘Skippy’ we offer a choice between a bread-based meal and a hot meal, if parents prefer the latter they are welcome to communicate this with our employees. The advantages of hot meals are that the children get many healthy nutrients and the parents experience less stress at the end of the day.
In the centre of Kralingen, close to Kralingse bos
Day care Skippy is situated at Vredehofweg in the centre of Kralingen, close to many (primary) schools and Kralingse forest (which is a great place to go on field trips to).
Warm and homely atmosphere in a beautiful, historical building
This small-scaled day care is located in a unique historical building. In the Autumn of 2012 the building was renovated thoroughly, a lot of care and consideration was put in to make it a light building with many options to keep a close eye on the children. We also found it very important to create a homely atmosphere and to have a shared kitchen.
A ‘baby balcony’ and a beautiful garden
Both baby groups, situated on the first floor, have access to two bedrooms and a roof terrace. The toddler groups, located on ground level, both have an elevated playhouse and can easily get to the adventure garden; this big, green garden contains a vegetable garden and many places to play and discover new things.
Activity counsellor for 3+ year-olds
SKK has an activity counsellor for every child who is three years old or older, her goal is to prepare the children for primary school. The activity counsellor uses pre-school methods which complement the themes used by our organization, she also works in small groups with the children to stimulate social, motor and cognitive development. Repetitive themes are: contradictions, counting, comparisons, etc. After the activities the activity counsellor writes a report for the parents about what their children have learned that particular day.

Skippy is an exemplary day care in my opinion. It is located in a beautiful location which has a so-called ‘baby balcony’ and a big garden in which the children can discover and play a lot. The children can play with for example water and sand and the garden is also the perfect play hide and seek in. We work with various themes throughout the year and with this we always aim to let the children gain new and fun experiences.
