Growing up healthy

Kroostopvang pays attention to healthy food with the childminder and good and plenty of exercise. Kim van Dommelen, childminder coach, has been trained as a Healthy Childcare coach; she provides training and guides childminders in this area. You can read about the Healthy Childcare programme here.


In addition, we advise childminders about what is and what is not healthy food and about how to exercise well and sufficiently. We hereby follow the guidelines of the Nutrition Centre.


Healthy food and adequate exercise are one of the conditions for a child to grow up healthy, and safety is also very important for a child. We ensure physical safety by conducting the annual risk inventory and evaluation. The childminder plays a major role in providing emotional security. They create a situation in which a child feels seen, heard and respected and therefore safe. All these components together ensure that a child can develop into a beautiful and healthy person.
