Your child’s situation

At House by the park we think it is important to know what is going on with your child. Has your child had a restless night because the first teeth are coming through or has a fever? Is your daughter a little sad because her mother is going on a long business trip? This is the kind of information our caregivers would like to hear when you bring your child in the morning. You can write this information in the Scribble Diary or send an email to our email address:

The diary

The roof book at House by the park records for each child what he eats, what time he eats, how long he sleeps, what activities are done, etc. Parents can also write additions in this book about the child’s home situation. In this way, the book provides a complete picture of your child’s development, in addition to being a nice memory for later!

Parents App

We have recently started a parents Whatsapp group, we share here daily photos of the activities we organize inside and outside.So you get daily fun pictures of your child.We also share important information such as a reminder when House by the park is closed, or important announcements about the nursery. Of course, we will ask for your permission to do this, which we do by having you sign a consent form.

Annual review

Once a year( usually in October), we will discuss with you your child’s progress at House by the park (including how your child plays with other children, how he responds to new situations, eating and sleeping habits). We use an observation form for this purpose. We also examine your child’s level of well-being. This evaluation between parent and counselor is an excellent opportunity to compare your child’s behavior at House by the park with that at home. It also ensures that we are working together for your child’s optimal development.

Should you need to talk with the supervisor or management earlier, that is always possible. Please feel free to contact the management via our email address or phone number: 070-4049750.

Bi-monthly parent committee meetings

At House by the park, extensive information is provided through the parent committee. This committee holds bi-monthly meetings with the management of House by the park. These meetings, in which all parents can participate, provide a platform for exchanging and sharing experiences.

Development journal

Your child will receive his or her own diary. In it the teachers write about the development of your son or daughter. They will also note any special circumstances during care. You can also write down any wishes or changes in your child’s care in the diary. Our staff will then take this into account during the nursery visit.

Why house at the park?

We are not the only childcare in The Hague or Scheveningen, but we are unique in our concept: at least 3,4 or 5 days of childcare per week as the only one in The Hague. This ensures continuity and stability for the children.
These are the advantages if you choose us:

Beautiful location in The Hague-Scheveningen. Familiar environment, small-scale and homely. So you discover the world safely and confidently.

Natural social development: together with other children you learn through play. With us, children play outside a lot and we take many trips.

Free choice of Dutch-speaking or English-speaking groups (expat groups). Bilingual childcare has been our trademark for years, not only for expats in The Hague.

Healthy hot lunch, delicious organic food, lots of fruit.
