Profile location
UniKidz Gebaar is a modern and small-scale facility for 2 groups of up to 12 children. A baby group (from 0-2 years old) and a toddler group (from 2-4 years old). The activities and spaces are geared specifically toward younger and older children to provide extra challenges for their further development. Safety, a challenging environment and a playful self-development are crucial here as well. In the groups, we are well aware of the possibilities of each child and we manage our activities based upon that. UniKidz is therefore being guided by Koniklijke Kentalis and NSDSK as the leading caregivers in the Netherlands. Our team consists of professionals (mentors) with different educational backgrounds, years of experience and are all trained in guidance of deaf/ hard of hearing children and children with a speech development disorder. Together, they offer a warm, safe environment for your child(ren), and a perfect balance between both active and relaxing indoor and outdoor activities that stimulate your child(ren) to develop themselves further: ‘by itself-development’ as we like to say at UniKidz.

Daycare we provide runs simultaneously with care your child might be getting from the early guidance program of Kentalis or NSDSK, beforehand or together with the educational program they provide. The group for deaf/hard of hearing children and the group for children with a speech development disorder are being organized separately and on different days of the week.

Our employees are getting constantly trained in the pedagogical expertise of Kentalis. They recognize the stages of development every child goes through in its own paste and with specific activities they support the development of essential abilities. There is always attention for emotional wellbeing of a child, every child is given the space he needs.

Every child has its own personality and every child likes to be noticed and appreciated. Our loving and caring team is leading in the area of childcare and children development.

In our pedagogical policy you can read more about our mission, about our vision and the way we play in on different stages of your child’s development.

Activity program
During the year toddlers get stimulated in many different areas. When it comes to music, different instruments get introduced each time and we sing a lot. When it comes to sport, the focus lies on motor skills and toddler judo and minigym are on schedule. Also theater, cooking classes or dance are regularly on the agenda.

We provide all our activities alone or in cooperation with our partner organisations. Every day gets started with a healthy fruit snack and in the afternoons we offer warm organic meals.

Childcare Allowence

The government states that childcare is a joint responsibility of parents, employers and the government. Working parents who use childcare are eligible for compensation from the government. Those parents sign a contract with the childcare organization and have final financial responsibility. You will receive an invoice from your childcare organization which you can use to apply for childcare allowance with the Dutch Tax Administration (part of the Ministry of Finance). More information on this can be found at www.toeslagen.nl. The awarded allowance depends on family income, the number of children using childcare, the number of hours and the costs of childcare.
