Your toddler learns a lot in a playful way at Kibeo. Your child can play nicely and protected and is challenged to learn new things. Almost all daycare centers work with Toddler start, certified programs that stimulate your child in his or her development.
When your child comes to Kibeo, he or she makes a new boyfriend very quickly; Puk or (at a number of locations) Bas. Puk and Bas are dolls that belong to Toddler Start and experience all kinds of recognizable, fun and exciting things together with your toddler.
Curious about the methods of Puk and Bas?
The methods 'Uk & Puk' and 'Do more with Bas' consist of different themes, which your child will work on for a number of weeks. The doll Puk or Bas teaches your child a lot of new skills in a playful way. During the 'Enjoy your meal' theme, for example, your toddler tastes pieces of fruit and vegetables and discovers whether he or she can eat with a fork, but also learns where food comes from and makes his own placemat.
Through the activities that your toddler does within the themes, he or she becomes acquainted with concepts such as: big and small, near and far, above and below, next to and in. The songs we sing together stimulate speech and language development and teach your toddler to count, make friends, share, wait their turn and move to music that is good for physical development.
Thanks to Toddler Start, the transition to primary school will soon be a lot less. Kibeo has a good cooperation with primary schools, so that the themes of the toddlers are well aligned with the programs of the kindergarten.
With the KIJK! the pedagogical staff follow the total development of your child from 0 to 3 years. As a result, they know exactly what your child needs and always provide the right amount of challenge by coordinating the activities accordingly.
If the observations show (or if there is an indication from youth health care) that your child could use an extra helping hand, he or she may free Come to the day care for 1, 2 or sometimes even 3 extra half-days. This also applies if we notice that your child could use an extra challenge. For these extra half-days you can go to our toddler plus groups. This will of course always be discussed with you first.
The data from the KIJK! Observations will be transferred to primary school when your child is almost 4 years old. Of course, this will only happen with your permission. Guidelines for the amount of extra half-days differ per municipality.
We use KIJK! in the regions of Goes, Borsele, Kapelle, Noord-Beveland, Reimerswaal, Schouwen-Duiveland and Barendrecht.
