Over ons - Kinderopvang Heyendael

Heyendael child daycare centre Nijmegen

The Heyendael child daycare centre in Nijmegen offers a wonderful and safe place for children between the ages of 0 and 4 years. Child day care Heyendael is a place where children can find an abundance of challenges, both indoors and outdoors: animals, vegetable plots, fruit trees and the Brakkenstein park are all within walking distance. The green surroundings, large gardens with plenty of variety and a private entrance to the Brakkenstein park make Heyendael child day care centre a playground paradise for babies and toddlers.

Child daycare centre at Radboud University and Radboud UMC

Child day care Heyendael is located on the Radboud University campus in Nijmegen and borders the Brakkenstein park. It goes without saying that many parents studying or working at the Radboud University, Nijmegen or Radboudumc, Nijmegen like to bring their children to a nursery which is close to their work or university. Not only are travel distances less, but there is also the possibility to feed your baby yourself if you are working close by. Our flexible reception employees are pleased to come up with solutions and suggestions catering for parents’ varying working hours or lectures. Priority for placement at our Heyendael child daycare centre is given to the children of employees of Radboud University and Radboud University Medical Centre. Many children come to our nursery from the local neighbourhoods. Our nursery is easily accessible from the Groenewoud, Brakkenstein and Hazenkamp districts.

Child day care ‘Kinderdagverblijf’ region Nijmegen

Our nursery in Nijmegen is also offered to expat children; international employees working at the Radboud University, Radboudumc and internationally oriented companies in Nijmegen. The language at our nursery is Dutch, but with these children we communicate in English or through sign language, ensuring that they always feel understood and quickly feel comfortable in their surroundings. We also conduct conversations with parents in English where necessary.
The kite in our logo symbolizes the constant movement the Heyendael child day care centre in Nijmegen and the children experience. Cheerful, relaxed, colorful and playful all characterize the atmosphere in our nursery. Our pedagogical employees, as with a kite, take control and subtly adjust when necessary. Like a kite in the wind, every child searches for his own way, reacts to everything they encounter along the way. Kinderopvang Heyendael takes care of the connection. Just as a kite is from head to tail, are parents to children with feeling and reason.
