VE shelter for your child.

Toddlers are naturally curious, they want to explore and are looking for the answers to all their "why questions. Toddlers can explore in our special (VE-recognized) toddler groups. Children aged 2 to 4 go exploring under the specialized guidance of two (VE) qualified staff members. In the group, in the corridor, in the garden or outside Location: there is something to discover everywhere!


In the VE group, toddlers are prepared for elementary school in a playful way. They regularly sit together in the circle for an activity or to hear from each other what everyone has experienced. Every period, a different theme is central. We also regularly visit 'the big school' in the neighborhood, where we participate in the classroom for an hour.

Our VE staff have specific knowledge of toddler development and focus on the child's development and needs. Is it going well, does the child need extra support or just extra challenge, so every child gets the guidance and support it needs.

Children learn by experiencing and by doing. The groups are designed to stimulate the child's innate curiosity.
