FOR CHILDREN AGED 4 TO 13
After school, it is time to enjoy some leisure time. Some children are tired and prefer to be alone, while others are still brimming with energy. If the location of the Out-of-School Care center permits it, a specific program for children aged 4 to 7 and children aged 7 to 13 is offered, allowing us to respond to the different needs of differently-aged children. This is what we mean when we say: “we work in a child-responsive way”. Out-of-School Care is another way of saying leisure time. And leisure time is fun!
REGISTERING MY CHILD
Child-focused and development-oriented
There is room and there are challenges for each and every child. Physical activity, playing sports, being creative, making art, playing outside or spending some quiet time reading: such are the ingredients for some of the best times in a child's day. Nothing is mandatory and - nearly - everything is allowed! This encourages the creative development, autonomy, growth and resilience of all children. Our pedagogical expertise allows us to see at what developmental stage a child is, and what next steps he or she can or would like to take. The level of development and the interests of the children determine the activities we offer.
With the youngest children, we use a so-called “living-room model”. In a familiar, conveniently arranged environment, our pedagogical staff members respond to the children's strong need for personal attention. Having something to eat and drink after school together, playing a game, doing some arts and crafts, reading a story. And then... outside to play!
With the older children, we use a “activity model”. The children themselves, or in consultation with the pedagogical staff members, form different clubs. For example, there is a carpentry club, a sports club, an arts and crafts club, a boys’ club and a girls' club, an art club, a dance club, etcetera. Although the clubs are essentially independent, they also regularly work together on a single theme
Your child has a say in things! The needs and wishes of your child are paramount to us. Therefore, child participation is a daily recurring item.
Reliable and professional
Our staff members show expertise, involvement, reliability and passion, each and every day. We keep their expertise up-to-date through regular training. Positive assessments by the Inspectorate ensure our quality. We are doing everything we can to offer loving, trustworthy and safe care to all children.
Standard product: 52 weeks
Are you looking for optimum flexibility and would you like to be assured of daycare throughout the year? Then our 52-week product is the most convenient and complete contract for you! Easy, since you do not have to arrange care for your child every time a vacation period comes around or the school is closed for a day. Since 2013, we have been offering a service that allows you to exchange days you are unable to use (due to a vacation or a national holiday, for example) for another day of your choice. Please refer to our Exchange Service Rules.
It is important to us that what we provide meets the requirements of your personal situation. This is why Kinderopvang Skar offers various products for 41, 46, or 52 weeks per year. If you only need childcare during school weeks, our 41-week product is the best choice for you. If you would like 5 weeks of (vacation) childcare in addition to this, you may opt for our 46-week product.
And if you would like optimum flexibility and childcare throughout the year, you may like our Plus Arrangement.
In addition to these 3 contract options, we also offer flexible childcare. This means that you purchase a certain number of days (or parts of days) per month. This offers you great freedom to reserve childcare days when you need them most. Are you just looking for childcare during vacation periods? That is also possible at Skar. The wealth of possibilities we are offering is unique in this region!

Exchange within a year
Days you are unable to use may be exchanged for other days within one calendar year. If you go on vacation or your regular childcare day falls on a national holiday, for example, you retain the right to these unused days. Read more about the rules of this Exchange Service.
Our services include beverages and snacks (excluding dietary foods) during the time your child spends in our care and during activities (including day trips and transport during vacation periods). During long daily periods and all-day childcare, we also provide a Dutch lunch (sandwiches). You children are brought from the care location to the school or from the school to the care location. Depending on the distance, this can be on foot, by bike or by taxi (in case of Before-School Care, the children are brought to school on foot).
