Since Monday August 20, Kibeo Voorhoute and OBS Voorhoute together form the first Integrated Child Center (IKC) in Reimerswaal; IKC Reserve. The official opening was performed by the alderman for education, Mr Verburg, and the director of the SOM foundation, Mr Soffers. The children were treated to a drink and a healthy snack and this was how the new school year started even more festive!
What is an Integral Child Center?
An Integral Child Center (IKC) is a facility for children from 0 to 12 years old, where they learn, play, develop and meet under one roof. Here the whole team works from one vision. For the children, this means that there is a smooth transition between childcare and education, that there is a wide range and that employees know each other and make mutual agreements. The development of the children is followed continuously at an IKC, in this way we know what the talents of the children are and where children may deserve extra attention. Collaboration with the parents is paramount within an IKC.
