Trusted, flexible and challenging
Mops Kinderopvang offers day- and after school care for children aged 0 to 13. At our childcare centers your child can play, discover the world around them, learn and have fun with other children.
You will find our childcare centers at four beautiful locations in Amsterdam-Zuidoost, Amsterdam Nieuw-West and Beverwijk. All our locations have broad opening hours and are easy to reach. You child will enjoy fresh fruit every day, and a hot, healthy lunch.
Developing by playing
We want your child to feel at home at Mops and that you feel good about leaving your child in our care. This is why we work with permanent childcare workers who will really get to know your child, give them genuine attention and who will challenge them to discover new things every day. All this in their own regular group with their own daily schedule.
The official language at Mops is Dutch. This is the language we speak with, and teach the children, but all our personnel is also English-speaking. If you don’t speak Dutch yourself our staff will speak English with you. If you have any questions regarding childcare benefits our office staff is also able to assist you in English.
From childcare center to elementary school
At Mops Kinderopvang the focus is always on the development of the children. Mops is a pre-school (voorschool) which offers ‘voorschoolse educatie (VVE)’, so every child can have the best possible start at elementary school. The voorschool at Mops is free when your child has a ‘voorschool indication’ from the OKC, even when you are entitled to childcare benefits. When you child has an indication you are entitled to 12 hours of voorschool per week. If your child does not have a voorschool indication, and you are not entitled to childcare benefits your child is entitled to 6 hours of free voorschool care per week.
Our policy with our vision and standpoints are symbolized in our ‘Mops Umbrella’. Every location of our childcare center has its own pedagogic policy which is based on this umbrella. In our pedagogic policy you can read what you can expect from Mops Kinderopvang, how we work and how we deal with different situations. You will also read about how Mops Kinderopvang creates and stimulates safety, trust and development. All our pedagogic policies can be found on this website.
Mops Kinderopvang is open 51 weeks per year, 5 days a week between 07:30 and 18:30. Mops is closed between Christmas and New Year’s. Our childcare centers are also closed at official holidays and study days for our personnel which will be announced in advance
