Kindcentrum de Binck

The place for primary education and childcare in one location in the Binckhorst.


Meet KC de Binck!

Kindcentrum De Binck is an inspiring place in the fast growing neighborhood, De Binckhorst. A neighborhood like an uncut diamond with rough edges, where craftsmanship goes hand in hand with living, working and active learning.

KC De Binck offers integrated education and care for children aged 0-13 years. Because whether you go to childcare or school: you develop all day long. Then why would you make a distinction between childcare and education? That is why we don’t make that distinction at KC De Binck.

Teachers and pedagogical staff discover how they can strengthen each other, how they can join forces to allow a child to flourish and excel. Through the continuous learning development lines, we monitor what each child needs and at what time. Children are also given the space to discover, to be amazed and to investigate in their own way.

Discover Research Create.

KC De Binck offers children the opportunity to explore where their talents and limits lie, what they can do and what can be further developed. Of course, this also applies to the employees. We examine the outside world, our environment; near and further away. We learn from each other, other people and cultures. We marvel and learn how we relate to each other.

What is needed to be valuable to society, what knowledge and skills do we need for this? Mathematics, language, or, for example, researching how entrepreneurship works? We encourage children to learn and develop through the educational concept we work with at KC De Binck.

The best place to develop

By working together in domains, at different levels, we inspire each other and stimulate thinking and the power to come up with solutions. We create an optimal, safe and stimulating environment where children, their parents and employees feel at home.

Together we work on projects where all our skills, theoretical and practical, are used. Working, learning and creating go hand in hand. Children, but also employees, are challenged to convert what they have discovered and researched into action; to make something. Active learning by doing. Children, regardless of their age, are creative and resourceful, we are here to guide them and to allow them to develop optimally.

Kindcentrum de Binck is a candidate school for the IB PYP programme. IB education has been developed by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).

Some of the important pillars are (for more information click here):

  • To develop international mindedness in all children
  • Encouraging ownership of each child
  • Stimulate children’s inquiry attitude
  • Create education from units (modules). Here we think from big concepts and insights
  • Learning transdisciplinary skills (such as; being self-managing, pursuing ambitions, social and communication skills, etc.)
  • Take action in the Binck and in the neighbourhood
    What is a domain?

    A domain is both a physical space and a concept. It is a vision of learning that is supported by the spaces in the Binck. Education and care take place in these open and large spaces. Children can develop, learn and relax here. Each floor is one domain, the furniture can be used flexibly and offers many opportunities to work (together) and relax.

    Will my child be in a group or class?

    Your child will be placed in a group with a mentor. This mentor is the first point of contact for you and your child. The meetings take place in this group. Your child will stay during the day in the domain and is supported by several colleagues and a larger group of children.

    How is structure brought into my child's day?

    Our days have a clear rhythm. This is how we start and close the education day with a meeting in the regular group. In addition, we make clear agreements about the desired behavior in and use of the domains with each other. The portfolio also includes a daily schedule specifically for your child.

    What is the parental contribution?

    We have chosen not to ask for a voluntary parental contribution at this time. All students participate in our school activities. We do not exclude students, because their parents are unable or unwilling to pay the voluntary parental contribution.

    What time is the Binck open?

    De Binck is open from 07:30 to 18:30. School hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
