Preschoolers are still small, yet they are quite big. They walk, they dance and run. They babble and chatter, persisting that ‘me do it’ and constantly asking ‘Why?’ They are curious about the world that surrounds them. About themselves, about other children and about the people they meet. It is important to give a preschooler every opportunity to make their discoveries.

Discovering through play

In the preschool group, you child will learn many things. All in a playful manner. Various activities will challenge him or her to further their development. Our preschool groups are a nice and interesting place for children from 2 to 4 years old. In the group they learn to interact with their peers, to share and to play together. This will give your child a better start at primary school. And that is something your preschooler will happily benefit from for many years to come.

Together on an adventure

At the preschool group your child will begin an adventure with Wonderland. He or she will start to make discoveries, gaining experiences and creating happy memories. By offering age appropriate activities, we encourage your child in every step of its development. In this way, your child and Wonderland go on an adventure together.

Positive experiences and happy memories will ensure that your child, and you, enjoy coming to Wonderland. Together with other children your child will engage in various activities and experience all kinds of new things. In a safe and secure, cosy and comfortable setting, where they can totally be themselves. Just like home.

Preschoolers have unbridled phantasies. Perhaps that explains why you will find so many fire men and princesses at Wonderland. At Wonderland all children get all the room they need to discover their own ‘me’. Your child can rely on permanent staff members who to listen to them with loving attention. Every day with the same caring passion for children.

Preschool group or play group?

A preschool group is sometimes called a play group. The name may be different, the aim is the same: to offer preschoolers all the room they need to further their development. Just like our day care facilities provide full days and half days of day care for babies, a Wonderland preschool group provides full days and half days of day care for preschoolers in packages of either 48 or 52 weeks a year. At the play group your child is welcome 40 weeks a year on several mornings or afternoons each week.

For more information please read the page on preschool daycare packages.

Guided transition to after school care

Is your child about to start primary school and have your registered him or her at one of our facilities for after school care? Then we will go and pay this location a visit together in advance. This will allow your child to get acquainted to the facility, which will make the upcoming transition a lot easier for them.

Playing outside, discovering the world around us

Outside, in the vicinity of Wonderland’s childcare facilities, there are many things for your child to discover. That is why Wonderland encourages the children as much as possible to go and play outside in our challenging outdoor playing areas. Several locations have a vegetable garden, where the children grow their own vegetables, cultivate fruits and take care of plants. How proud they are at harvesting time! Of course they are. Nothing tastes better than your own home-grown strawberries, tomatoes and apples!

Additionally, we often leave the facility. Out we go, with our old-fashioned handcart, for a walk into nature. To the woods, the dunes or the beach. Or to a supermarket, a petting zoo or our after school facility. These excursions enable your child to discover all kinds of interesting places during their stay at Wonderland.


Fully catered care, including a healthy hot lunch

When your child is at Wonderland, we take care of everything. For the youngest children we have Nutrilon 1 and 2 infant formula, as well as diapers, sun lotion and sleeping bags. And we take your child’s allergies into account. Of course we do. We choose to offer the children as many healthy products as possible. For lunch your child will enjoy a tasty and healthy warm meal. Because, as the Dutch saying goes: ‘zien eten, doet eten’ (seeing others eat, stimulates the appetite). At Wonderland, having our meals together means we discover all kinds of new tastes. Besides, most children are better eaters at lunch time than at dinner time. Isn’t it good to know your child has already had all important nutrients when it returns home from Wonderland!? At most locations the hot lunch is included in the fee (at the play groups it is not included). On the location pages you can find if the hot lunch is included in the fee.

Attention to sports and exercise

Moving around freely is not just fun, it is also very beneficial to your child’s physical development. That is why a number of Wonderland’s facilities have indoor playgrounds, as well as a gym and exercise studios. There we offer preschooler dance, preschooler yoga or sports workshops and preschooler bootcamp. And, in any case, we play and exercise outside as much as possible, the whole year round.
