De Rivieren

KleintjeZuid de Rivieren is located in and around the school building of Dalton primary school de Rivieren. Centrally located in the Rivierenbuurt the location offers a green and challenging playground for children of all ages.

There is a partnership between the primary school and our locations. With this collaboration we create a continuous learning path from preschool to primary school. The continuous learning path reduces the big step from care to education.

At our certified preschool we work with the educational program 'Startblokken'. An educational program stimulates development in the areas of language, arithmetic, motor skills and social-emotional development. The goal is to prepare children in a playful way for the big step from care to education.

Startblokken is characterized by a development-oriented and child-following approach. This means that the program matches the interests of the children in the group and at the same time encourages them to take the next step in their development. Every day our pedagogical staff plan a fun and educational curriculum for all children in our play & learning environment and provides guidance for smaller groups or individual children.


From spring to autumn, the children are offered fun and educational gardening lessons. KleintjeZuid has a collaboration with the urban farmer collective 'City Plot'. 

During the gardening lessons we spend time outdoors and the children learn where their food comes from, about healthy eating, how to grow their own fruit and vegetables, to connect with and have respect for nature and much more.

Of course the children really enjoy digging in the soil with their hands and tasting their own harvest. We use our harvest to cook and make healthy treats, from mint tea to strawberry jam. Fun, educational and…delicious!
