Teddy Kids International Daycare in Leiden
The first step towards becoming a Global Citizen
We are here to help prepare the child for life and for school, be it the Netherlands or any other country in the world
We want to give our children a head start in life and in their school career. By learning 2 or more languages at the same time, children develop more flexible approaches to thinking through problems. The ability to think in multiple languages promotes higher levels of abstract thought which helps greatly in acquiring and retaining new and relevant information.
Having more than one language also opens the world to the child, not only in other countries, but also in managing their relations and being more open and understanding to the people from around the world.
Teddy Kids is here for you, the parents. Coming from abroad, having a new baby or moving to Leiden, there are many questions that parents may have and we are here to help you with all of them.
Our goal is not to only teach children English (or Dutch). Our goal is to teach the children to adapt, to have the ability to learn any language, to adjust to any culture, to be a child of the world. Once they are grown up, they will be able to live, understand and work in any country or culture. This is what creates an international child. Daycare is the first step in a child’s international life and education and we are there, every step of the way to give them all the opportunities.
The Best Daycare
At the most convenient location
The American School of the Hague is renowned for it’s education. Thanks to our strong focus on education and internationality, we were given the opportunity to open a daycare in their Early Childhood Center (ECC).
The daycare at Herenstraat is our very first location! It all started as a small business and has since then grown to a real family-oriented kindergarten organisation.
Our newest and most iconic location: The Rijnsburgerweg was built by the Dutch Architect Hendrik Jesse and was his personal residence in the year 1906. Today, this building hosts a modern daycare with a 1000m2 garden specially designed for children.
Our daycare at the Zeemanlaan is modern (think of fingerscanners, iPads in each group, etc) and is also our largest establishment. We have 6 groups and even After-school care (BSO) available.
