What is Club Don Bosco?
Club Don Bosco is a place where children can be themselves, make friends and play in a free setting. Our centre is located in a green area and our audience is multicultural. Club Don Bosco is an after school day care, which means that we are opened Monday until Friday after school, on extra free days decided by school and during the holidays. We pick up your child from school, provide them a healthy snack and drink. Besides that we try to motivate your child to join one of our many activities.
What makes Club Don Bosco unique?
One of our keywords is freedom. Your child plays in a green area with other children of their age. We give them the opportunity to try new things, make friends and unleash their energy after a long day at school. Our qualified employees are supported by interns and volunteers that are trained and educated by our Don Bosco employees. This makes us a colourful mix of people and their talents. We make children happy with our activities for over 60 years.
What are Don Bosco’s standards?
Don Bosco Rijswijk believes in prevention: if you challenge children in a positive way and stimulate them, they will be motivated to behave positive. Some of our standard values are: presence, somebody that listens, reasonableness, have a conversation, stimulate, responsibility, trust and providing space.
What does this mean?
We give our children endless possibilities but clear boundaries as well. Everybody is equal and everybody is welcome. How does this show? Well, take a good look around. Our children as well as our leaders are a beautiful mix of cultures and sizes. Whether you are tall, small, fat or thin; to us it makes no difference! We think it’s important that children have a choice: Do you want to join an activity, or do you rather just play? Club Don Bosco organises activities on a regular base and it’s up to the child if it joins. Some of our typical Don Bosco-activities are: an autumn-walk through the forest, a dino-treasure hunt, baking cakes, making a musical or a table soccer-tournament. Children should enjoy themselves and be relaxed. Combine this with a save environment and you have the recipe for a typical day at Don Bosco.
Club Don Bosco is officially registered at Landelijk Register Kinderopvang en Peuterspeelzalen. If you can apply for an allowance, you can visite www.belastingdienst.nl/toeslagen to get an concept calculation of what will be the costs if your child comes to Club Don Bosco.
Good to know
We have a profitable rate, namely 6 euros per hour, no matter what amount of hours your child comes to our day care. Extra days decided by school and national feast days are included in our calculation. It’s possible to change days during school weeks, as long as it meets our conditions. Club Don Bosco’s schedule is based on the schedule of your school so make sure you check the calendar regularly. We are closed on national feast days, but this is included in our calculation.
