Kiepie en Kandas Kleuterskool

Our Program

Our daily program contains thematic and interactive activities that interest the Kindergartener and thus he learns without realizing it through play. Early Learning Development Areas (ELDAs) such as creativity, communication, early mathematical concepts, gross motor and sensory skills etc. are covered in our programme.

Parents also receive a weekly WhatsApp message that gives more information about the theme being treated. We also often have entrances and exits that match the themes to involve the toddlers more concretely.
