International families are of course welcome with their babies and young children at SKSG. We provide high quality day care with English-speaking pedagogical staff. English-speaking children can attend both our day care as well as the preschool.
Our day care service provides children from the age of 8 weeks up to 4 years of age with a safe, hygienic and friendly environment. We organise a range of fun and creative activities, from reading and walks in the park to dancing and singing. For babies, we have challenging and safe toys and children of all ages can have great fun playing in our shady garden. Our pedagogic vision focuses on supporting children to achieve their own, unique development. We encourage children to discover their own talents. Because the best that you can become is yourself!
In collaboration with the international division of the GSV (Groningen School Association), SKSG offers a special English-language preschool programme for 3 year olds from expat families. This programme supports your child in acquiring the required skills for primary school and provides ideal preparation. The activities programme of the preschool is based on international programmes for early childhood education and is regularly adapted to reflect the latest developments. Our large garden at the preschool provides a fun playing area for the children. The preschool is managed by teachers from GSV and SKSG, and represents an ideal mix of education and day care.
Childcare days and opening times for preschool and day care
The day care times are fixed from Monday through to Friday. These are 7:30 am to 1:00 pm and from 12:30 pm to 6:00 pm. There are also fixed preschool times on Monday morning, Tuesday morning, Thursday morning and/or Friday morning from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. The minimum you can book is two day parts per week. As recommended by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW), no childcare will be provided during the school holidays and SKSG’s childcare centres are closed on public holidays for the region Noord. In principle, childcare ends when children turn 4. If your child is not starting primary school immediately, then you can extend the childcare by a maximum of three months. You can submit a written request for such an extension to the customer service of SKSG.
