Het Baken

This location will be opening on 31 August 2020.

Integrated childcare centre The Beacon is a Christian child centre with a preschool playgroup and out-of-school childcare located in Capelle aan den IJssel in the Schollevaar district. We form an integrated childcare centre together with the Protestant Christian primary school Het Baken.

Het Baken’s motto is quality, fun and safety for your child. We offer a stimulating environment and loving care and contribute to the personal development of your child. Each child is unique and valuable and deserves the best care and attention. We provide expert and childcare with attention to detail. We are very much aware of the role we play in the development and education of your child. Our pedagogical staff members have a loving approach to the children.

We organise many fun activities for the children. We believe it is important that children learn to discover the world around them in a playful and relaxed way.

We believe it is important that each child is given ample opportunity to feel at home with us. This will always be done in consultation with the parents.

We will take all the necessary time to get acquainted and become familiar. You can read more information about our settle-down-time procedure in our Pedagogical Policy.


At Royal Kids Home we work with several different themes (for example, autumn or ‘a trip around the world’). These themes are compiled in consultation with the primary school in which the care facility is located. The theme varies per season and adds excitement and substance to the activities that are done with the children. By regularly offering new themes, we can continuously introduce variety, innovation and creativity within the childcare facilities. As a result, the children are constantly offered new material and activities that expand their worlds. Our aim is to stimulate every single development area through activities.
