Educational policy as a basis
Our educational policy forms the primary principal for the
procedure at all our childcare centres. This policy, for instance,
provides the direction for the character of our centres, outside
spaces, the approach of the educational staff members and our
offer of activities. As one of the few childcare providers in the
region, we employ educationalists and out-of-school care coaches,
who supervise the educational qualities and support our staff in
the daily practice. Periodically, our educational quality is (scientifically) researched, in order to increase this quality continuously.
Educational staff members are given further training via an
(online) offer of courses in the field of the latest educational
perception. In addition, they also do courses addressing First Aid
for children, reading stories, numeracy and mathematics for preschoolers, anticipating developments, and involvement in playing.
Learning in a playful way 0-4 years
2Samen offers more than just day care. Every day, our staff
members dedicate themselves to offering your child the challenges
it needs. Playfully, we stimulate development, such as in the fields
of language, thinking and social skills.
The day care centre
Tender loving care and sufficient peace are essential. However,
already from the age of a baby, there is also a lot to do and
discover at our centres. Learning and developing together, that is
what a day care centre is exceedingly suitable for. Our staff
members make sure that your child will lack nothing and stimulate
its development from the age of a baby. In our day care centres,
we pay attention to movement, dance, music and many other
things. In addition, we read stories every day to increase the
vocabulary. Healthy possibilities for exercise and a lot of open air
are also of major importance. Helping in the vegetable garden or
shopping together are popular activities. Where possible, we lay
out challenging nature gardens and outside spaces. Further, we
organize various playful activities in which exercise forms centre
stage. Some locations have an electric cart (Stint) with which we
can go to the woods, park or beach in no time.
By attending a playgroup, your child will have the opportunity to
widen his or her world and to gain new experiences. Their ‘home
world’ will expand considerably. Moreover, it is a good preparation
for the primary school. For instance, your child playfully learns
what it is like to function in a group, to play together and to share
things. In the playgroup, 2Samen uses themes that are connected
with various activities, such as handicraft, reading stories, songs
and dances. In doing so, we stimulate a broad development.
Early childhood education and care
© Andrea Ege
Children, who start at the primary school with a language or
arithmetic deficiency, are often troubled by it for the rest of their
school years. An ECEC programme at our playgroups or day care
centres can be the solution. We will pay extra attention to
language or arithmetic skills and to social and communicative
skills, with which we considerably increase their chances of having
a good school career.

Learning in a challenging way
4-13 years
In our out-of-school care programme, we focus our work on
development and growing independence. However, out-of-school
care time is leisure time and children can therefore make their own
choices. Just reading a book or playing outside together certainly
form part of the possibilities.
After-school care: the most elaborate offer of activities
in the whole region
Our internal project department KICKs organizes a challenging and
varied range of activities that offer children the possibility to
discover (new) talents every week. With more than 200 different
workshops from which our locations can make their own choice,
various clinics and even a summer camp, we undoubtedly have
the most elaborate offer in the whole region! These activities are
included in our rates, so you don’t have to pay any extras.
Some examples: soccer, hockey, self-defence, surfing, capoeira,
break-dance, violin lessons, guitar lessons, theatre, photography,
making computer animations, fox spotting, painting, gardening and
beachcombing. Often, hired specialist teachers take care of the
In our daily practice, we pay a lot of attention to exercise and
experiencing nature. For instance, we organize sports days, outdoor
programmes and nature discovery days. In addition, we frequently
organize fun outings.
Cooperation with schools
2Samen has a cooperation agreement with many primary schools
in the region. In some cases, we even take care of the after-school
activities programme in case of prolonged schooldays.
If your child attends one of the primary schools with which we
cooperate, he or she will be picked up from school. If your child
attends another school, he or she will also be welcome at our care
centre, but unfortunately we will not always be able to pick him
or her up from school ourselves.
