Ludens has over 30 years of experience in childcare, with over 50 locations of daycare centres (KDV) and out-of-school care centres (BSO) spread across nearly all neigbourhoods of Utrecht. We are closely integrated in the local community and are actively involved in the children’s environment. We work together with a variety of social entities including primary schools and sports clubs. Every day around 3,500 children in the age range of 0 to 13 years play at our locations.
Together with parents, Ludens aims to offer children a happy childhood in a pleasant environment of mutual trust. Ludens is childcare in your local neighbourhood. We build upon existing strengths of children and our staff, and have translated these into our own Ludens Growth Chart. Ludens actively seeks cooperation with parents and partners in the neighbourhood. "It takes a village to raise a child".
Proper childcare can add significant value to the quality of young children’s and their parents’ lifes. Parents and children will have the opportunity to meet at the childcare centre, encouraging close relationships and friendships to develop. Childcare contributes to the development of future’s society. We believe high quality childcare should be available and accessible to all. Our childcare is a professional service, a commercial enterprise, but still primarily focused on the interests of children and society at its heart.
