Are the groups horizontal or vertical?

what should I give to my child?
Babino takes care of diapers, formula (Nutrilon follow-on milk), drinks, fruit, a snack and a hot meal at noon.
How often do the children play outside?
The teachers try to play outside with the children as much as possible. At Babino we think it is important that children can move freely and discover things for themselves. We therefore aim to be outside every day.
How does the adjustment procedure work?
At day care centers we offer children and parents the opportunity to get used to the group first. You can ask our employees about the process.
In principle, we do not offer settling-in moments at the toddler care and after-school care. If necessary, this can always be planned in consultation.
Can I exchange and/or request extra days?
You can request extra days when you need it, this can be done via the parent portal. If the group size allows it, the employees can promise an extra day.
During the year you have the option to request a maximum of 6 exchange days. If the group size allows it, the employees can promise an extra day.
More information about requesting extra days and exchange days can be found in the parent portal.
