Hestia Early Learning Centre


Address: , Amsterdam
, Amstelveen

Tel: 020 – 6618710

The Hestia approach is to understand which knowledge and skills young children already possess. By playing, we help them to develop themselves. Hestia works with the Reggio Emilia pedagogical concept: the child is born rich and competent and can express itself in a 100 different languages. In this way, the child becomes the best version of itself!

International and bilingual Amsterdam and Amstelveen are multicultural cities. We make sure this is also visible in our day and after school care: children learn to speak both English and Dutch here. Our highly experienced teachers are from a variety of countries and so are our customers: from Japan to Peru and from Poland to The Netherlands. The Hestia approach is well known and people from all over the world travel to our locations for inspiration.

Hestia Early Learning Centres are located in Amsterdam and Amstelveen.

Hestia Amstelveen

Laan van de Helende Meesters 4, Amstelveen | Tel. 020-3459391

Hestia Amstelveen is a bilingual day care for children aged 0-5 and after school care for children aged 4-12. The children come from more than twenty different countries: from Japan and India to South Africa and of course The Netherlands. All activities are offered bilingually and the groups have Dutch and English speaking staff. This enables the children to easily learn and use two languages. Children that speak another language at home, also learn Dutch and English quickly. Recent research shows that bilingually raised children better develop their intelligence and learn how to make quick and better decisions.

Hestia Beethoven

Gaasterlandstraat 5, Amsterdam | Tel. 020-6422929

Hestia Beethoven was the first location and was opened in 2003. This location shares a building with young and creative companies in the Oldschool building. A truly unique location was formed by, amongst others, architect Marijn Schenk of Next Architects: light and with views of the garden. There is a kitchen and piazza, where the children and teachers cook together, if possible organic, and always healthy. And then all these cosy corners and see-through spots, that make the building complete.

Hestia Rivierenbuurt

Uiterwaardenstraat 542, Amsterdam | Tel. 020-6617937

Hestia Rivierenbuurt offers bilingual daycare and after school care. Your child from ages 0-12 is welcome with us! We are not the only ones proud of the location, Mayor Eberhard van der Laan also told us during the opening he “had never seen such a beautiful daycare.

The building was designed with Reggio Emilia, our philosophy, as an inspiration. It was built as a city: a number of rooms, a central square and a connection to the outside world.

Partou Daycare


Tel: +31 88 235 75 00

An evolving sector

In 1984 our first childcare center opened its doors. Since then a lot has changed. More and more mothers made the choice to find a job and in 2004 the Childcare Act (Wet kinderopvang) was introduced by the government imposing clear quality demands. Over the years our work has become more and more professionalized. Nowadays the development of children is the core of child care and the sole term ‘care’ does not cover its meaning adequately anymore.

Large …

Nowadays quality, continuity and flexibility are important factors which determine the choice of childcare. Parents choose the care that fits their needs and wishes the best and that offers their children – small and big – a stimulating surrounding they love to go to. Running around 300 centers with more than 3.800 employees makes Partou one of the largest childcare organisations in The Netherlands. That is why we can invest in quality, development and innovation to maintain the high quality level of our care.

…. but nevertheless small and familiar

At the same time, however, Partou is small and familiar. You will find our centers cosy and welcoming and both parents and children enjoy coming there. Where personal attention and having fun come first.

Our employees

Well trained, experienced and motivated pedagogical employees form the heart of our organization. Together with the children they turn every day into a special one. That is why we invest time, effort and money in their training, education and schooling. Behind the scenes all locations are backed up by a national head office which renders services in the fields of monitoring and increasing the quality of care, financial administration and facility and human resources management. Together we make reliable and professional child care possible.

Partou has day care locations for expats in:

The first four years of your child’s life are the basis for a lifetime of development. Think of social behaviour, language development, experiences with nature or the expression of creativity. We want to help children develop self-confidence and an open, positive attitude.
