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.

Zein Child Care Group BV


Address: Jozef Israelsplein 36, Den Haag, 2596 AV The Hague
Tel: +31 70 3268263

We believe in the importance of intentional teaching of 'socio-emotional competencies' - a key success factor in bringing up happy, well rounded young people. The quality of early years’ experiences can have a fundamental impact on all aspects of human development, physically, emotionally and intellectually - they set the stage for later health, wellbeing and learning. There is a demonstrated link between young children’s social-emotional competence and their cognitive development, language skills, mental health and school success.

Our programme aims to help children feel positive about themselves, their abilities and the people around them. Social-emotional competence in early childhood is made up from the following:

•     Self-esteem - good feelings about oneself
•     Self-confidence - being open to new challenges and willing to explore new environments
•     Self-efficacy - believing that one is capable of performing an action
•     Self-regulation/Self-control - following rules, controlling impulses, acting appropriately based on the context
•     Personal agency - planning and carrying out purposeful actions
•     Executive functioning - staying focused on a task and avoiding distractions
•     Patience - learning to wait
•     Persistence - willingness to try again when first attempts are not successful
•     Conflict resolution - resolving disagreements in a peaceful way
•     Communication skills - understanding and expressing a range of positive and negative emotions
•     Empathy - understanding and responding to the emotions and rights of others
•     Social skills - making friends and getting along with others
•     Morality - learning a sense of right and wrong

Through these competencies we aim to support our children's social and emotional development - equipping them with the necessary skills, knowledge, and attitudes which will help them succeed in their friendships, school and home lives and as members of the wider community. | View website | View on map
