Are you looking for quality daycare in Groningen? At Het Toddlers Huis we put your child’s wellbeing and development first. We understand the importance of your child’s first years. That is why our daycare provides a safe haven for your child to discover, play and develop.
We provide professional daycare in a homely and safe environment. We offer both flexible and fixed care contracts at our daycare. Het Toddlers Huis has several locations in the city of Groningen, located both centrally and close to the Groningen beltway.
Toddlers Huis has two locations in Groningen. Moreover, our sister location Monkey Donky has four locations in the city of Groningen. With all these options, there is always a daycare near your work or home.
Our locations Friesestraatweg and Kraneweg offer daycare for children aged 3 months to 4 years. At Friesestraatweg there is also an after-school care facility for children up to the age of 13. At our location at Friesestraatweg, most children come from (the surroundings of) the districts Gravenburg, de Held and Reitdiep. This location is modern and cozy. It has a baby group, two toddler groups and an after-school program.
Our location at the Kraneweg is a small, cozy daycare that was completely renovated in the summer of 2018. The daycare is modernly furnished and includes a baby group and a toddler group.
– More than 20 years of experience in daycare and afterschool care.
– Options for flexible and fixed daycare contracts.
– Daycare based on trusting relationships, mutual respect and a positive approach.
– Pedagogical plan based on our experience and current scientific insights.
– A safe and caring environment specifically designed for your child’s wellbeing and optimal development.

Your child can safely explore, play and grow at Het Toddlers Huis. We take great care to provide the optimal nurturing environment by firstly ensuring safety, health and hygiene. The plentiful toys, furniture and the arrangement of the group spaces – everything is set up for your child to have fun growing up!
We continuously work to improve our daycare. Both current scientific insight and our ongoing practical experience provides an opportunity to develop our method and vision. This way we can keep providing the best for your child. This results in our pedagogical plan.
The central theme of our pedagogical plan is respect: working on a trusting relationship with the child based on a positive approach, affection and structure. Our staff members’ behavior plays a major role in instilling these values in children.
Another important aspect of our pedagogical plan is combining practical (MBO level), practical-theoretical (HBO level) and theoretical (University level) insights and staff at Het Toddlers Huis. This diversity of insights greatly enhances our ability to provide the best quality daycare for your child.
We fully understand that it isn’t always possible to determine beforehand on which days you require daycare. Especially if you work flexible hours.
That is why we offer both flexible and fixed contracts. Flexible contracts allow you to pick and choose particular (parts of the) day. We also offer a zero-hour contract in which you only pay the hours you actually end up using. Please keep in mind that flexible contracts are not available at our Kraneweg location, and availability at location Friesestraatweg is limited.
