Unikids 2.0 Daycare is a small nursery where we provide care for children between 0 and 12 years. We inform and communicate in two languages, Dutch and English. We have access to a large nursery located on the Abdij van Bernestraat within walking distance of the Tilburg University. An out-of-school care in collaboration with the primary school Harten4 and a preschool, toddler care located on the cederstraat.
WE DO IT DIFFERENT!
In 2013, Unikids Daycare is taken over by former pedagogical member Elles Luijten. With a permanent staff of the nursery, the parents, the parents’ committee and in close cooperation with Tilburg University, we said in 2013 that childcare can be “different” and must be. We hope you are as excited as we do, after reading our website. And understands that our childcare can offer more then you first expected.. We cannot articulate everything and make it visible on our website, we hope you will come along without obligation, so you can experience “the difference”.
Small but still spacious
We are a small nursery and have no separate departments such as planning, administration and management. Small scale does not mean that we cannot offer the same quality, we believe that we can offer you much more. Every employee at Unikids 2.0 Daycare does what he or she is good at and contributes to the existence of Unikids 2.0 Daycare.
Flexible exchange policy
Because we are flexible in what we do, we can offer you the same flexibility. We think it’s important, society is changing, and we believe that the childcare has to grow along. We therefore offer flexible exchange days, which means you can use the unused days at the nursery, free in the quarter if the child ratio allows.
With our daycare we want to relieve the parents, you do not need to bring anything to our nursery, preschool/toddler care and after primairy school care. Among other, food, fruit, drinks and diapers are included in the hourly rate. We have one hourly rate for all different contracts at the daycare or after-school care! Our hourly rates are well within the childcare allowance. If you want to know what the childcare costs mean for you, please view the calculation example in our pricelist.
Short waiting list
We have a short waiting list and on some days a spot is immediately available, for new parents and for parents who want to switch days. We are a small-scale childcare facility that can switch quickly and would like to think along with you in solutions. You do not call or talk to us with the administration or planning department, you have direct contact with the nursery, toddler care or after-school care
Direct contact points
We are happy to work with you! Do you have any questions, comments, want to swap a day or just a friendly chat, the team is ready to assist. If we do not know the answer right away, it will be discussed within the team and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
Children can be themselve
We have great locations for our nursery, toddler care and after-school care. Every child can be themselve. We think it is very important to play together and to take each other into account, but there is also space if they want to play alone. Every child receives the attention and care she needs. Every child has its own rhythm and habits. In addition to the groups, we have a large hall / auditorium and garden to play and to offer separate activities at different levels! So every child can learn.
Children come first
Because the groups are vertically set, the pedagogical staff, parents and of course children can build up a good relationship of trust. Because children remain in principle their entire time at the nursery with the same pedagogical staff and in the same group.
Friendly and open atmosphere
As the clock is tickin at home, it also tap at our daycare (Home, sweet home). A homely atmosphere for young and old, where everyone can be themselves. In addition to the daily care, we arrange activities for parents and children. Everyone is of course, free to participate in the activity!
Active parents and parents’ committee
You as a parent and the parents’ committee are important to us, we attach great values to look together how we can provide the best way of childcare for you and your children. The parents are assisted by the parents’ committee which are actively involved in the organization of the nursery daycare. They can be accessed directly for questions or comments. You can always let us know what you think!
Open for changes and your ideas
We are a young childcare organization with employees who have gained much experience from other nurseries. As a result, we have our ideas on how the childcare can change. But it is not just about our ideas, ultimately the opinion of you as a parent are very important for us. We hope that you make your opinion known to us and we know what you expect from us. So that we can respond to your needs.
Bilingual communication and information
We communicate and inform you as a parent openly and honestly, as we attach great values to. We offer everything in two languages, Dutch, English, Communication within the group, between pedagogical staff and children, conducted in Dutch and using the hands, feet and examples. English is only spoken when the child’s first language is English or spoken within the home situation. Language development is very fast in children between zero and four years, but the language development may be affected negatively if it is not obvious to the child when the language is spoken.
Children need to be protected and certainly in the area of privacy, we treat it very carefully. For this we do not show pictures of children on our general website. We invite you to our nursery, preschool / toddler care and
out-of-school care, to see the children playing, laughing and sometimes crying. If we like to use photographs for example in a newsletter, we will always ask for explicit consent from the parents.
Coorperation with the Tilburg University
The Tilburg University attaches great importance to its (international) employees to combine work and family in a pleasant way. Tilburg University has contributed to the initiative for establishing Unikids 2.0 Daycare. For the care of the child was found that the childcare is sometimes problematic for employees international staff because they do not have a social safety net, childcare locations have waiting lists or no fixed faces (employees) and cannot be flexible towards new and existing parents.
Everybody is welcome
Big, small, fat, thin, and where ever you are coming from, every child is welcome. Also children from outside the university are welcome at Unikids 2.0 Daycare.
The safety of children and staff is paramount. Periodically a check is carried out by the health department of the government to make sure we meet the requirements laid down in the framework of the law. We are rated as very good! And therefore we like to invite you to read the positive reactions in the drawn out reports. We go beyond the law, for example, our location is equipped with a camera and lock on the door and we have a strict policy for visitors. Everyone is welcome as long as we know who you are.
