Pre-School and Early Childhood Education (PSECE+)

Welcome to our Pre-School and Early Childhood Educational Centre. We are the PSECE coordinators of UniKidz ParkHoek and UniKidz Steiger. We would love to invite you to experience our world of 2,5 – 4 years old, where playing, discovering, developing and growing up go hand in hand.

Educational Programme

At UniKidz we work with the Uk and Puk method, an educational programme officially recognised by the Dutch government. Puk, a cheerful puppet, is the children’s playmate, while they are the ‘Ukken’, Dutch for ‘little ones’. Uk and Puk seamlessly fits into pre-school and early childhood education (PSECE). In a natural  playful manner, babies, infants and toddlers learn core skills in line with their age and perception of the world around them. This ensures that your child is optimally stimulated to develop their language skills, as well as in their social-emotional development, motor and sensory development, and numeracy.


PSECE is especially effective in giving children that extra developmental boost if needed, while on the other hand PSECE contributes to a smoother transition into your child’s next developmental stage from nursery school to elementary school. Our PSECE+ coordinator works close together with her team to ensure that any learning deficits are made up and that kids have a head start before going to elementary school.

At UniKidz the following areas in your child’s development are stimulated:

  • Language development: including learning new words and improving vocabulary in general.
  • Basic numeracy: learning how to count, measure things, plus orientation in space and time.
  • Motor development: stimulation of both gross and fine motor skills.
  • Social-emotional development: stimulating independence, self-confidence, as well as cooperation and playing together.

UniKidz+ concept

When we notice that your child could do with a few extra challenges, our UniKidz+ concept can offer extra intensification and advanced topics that are specifically tailored to your child’s needs. Those extra challenges can particularly make the difference during this developmental stage. The PSECE+ programme customised for your child will be developed and supervised by our experienced PSECE+ staff in close collaboration with our remedial teacher of our label ‘mijn-studie’ Spot.

UniKidz’s PSECE+ programme offers also activities like drama- and dance classes by School of Theatre ACT, mini- and junior gym by ‘ik-ben-fit’ Arena, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) and is focussing on the self development of children.

Childcare allowance

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 The awarded allowance depends on family income, the number of children using childcare, the number of hours and the costs of childcare.

If you need help figuring things out, please do not hesitate to ask our assistance!
