What is a child centre?

A child centre is a place where education and childcare meet and seamlessly connect. Thanks to our way of working, your child's educational development begins as soon as he or she starts attending SkippyPePijn day care. SkippyPePijn's subsequent pre-school and after-school care continues to mirror the development of your child in school. In this way, Kindcentrum Regenboog offers a safe and trusted environment, in which your child can continue to develop from the ages of 0 to 13.
