COMME A LA MAISON/HOUSE BY THE PARK

Practical

Multilingual nursery

For more than 20 years our daycare and BSO has been located in The Hague, in the familiar corner building on the Duinweg. At that time we were the first day care center with English-speaking day care and after-school care. Sought after by the expat community in The Hague and Scheveningen, but more and more also chosen for a bilingual upbringing, or for example in preparation for emigration. Parents have the choice between our English-speaking groups and Dutch-speaking groups for their children.

Healthy and active!

We like to keep it active and healthy. That starts with the food: lots of fresh fruit and a delicious hot lunch. And it’s also great to do all kinds of things together. With Scheveningen beach nearby, we like to go there in the summer with the children under expert supervision. But actually we choose the fresh outdoors as soon as the weather permits – our own outdoor space, the petting zoo, Westbroekpark … the more often the better.

Inside there is reading and storytelling, drawing and crafting, working with papier maché or baking. There are songs to sing and verses to learn – we make our own music, listen to it and dance together. Of our further activities we like to mention swimming, gymnastics and yoga. We would love to show you: please make an appointment for a tour?

Stability and continuity at our childcare centers

With permanent leaders, your child will always have familiar faces around them. Just as important for bonding is the fact that all children visit us at least three times a week – and we adhere strictly to this rule. In this way we work on natural social development: together with other children, your child learns through play.

Clear communication between parents and nursery

At House by the park we believe it is important that there is regular coordination between the parents and the leaders. When picking up or dropping off your child, you will always have brief contact with the leader. At this busy time there is not always enough time to talk extensively, so do not hesitate to make an appointment for that with the leader.

Parent interview daycare and out-of-school care

At least once a year we invite you to a parent meeting. You will have the opportunity to discuss everything with your child’s leader and the staff. The results of the well-being survey will also be discussed.

Consultation around child care

If you would like to meet with a teaching assistant or the leadership of House by the park, we would be happy to make time for you. Please email or call us for an appointment.

Parent Activities

House by the park is proud of its active parent association, and the parent activities and joint parties such as picnics, parent nights, the annual get-together and BBQ… Check out our Annual Plan for an impression!

Diary of your child’s development

Your child will receive his or her own diary in which the teachers will keep you informed of your child’s development and any special circumstances during care. You can also write down events at home, wishes or changes in care in the diary, for example after a visit to the consultation bureau or the family doctor. The leaders can then take this into account.

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.
