Hero Children’s Centres; fantastic childcare facilities in Haarlem and Spaarndam
We can offer every child in Haarlem and Spaarndam a suitable childcare placement with our 84 different childcare locations. Our long history, our extensive local network, intensive collaborations with schools and our sound educational knowledge allows us to quickly respond to developments in society.
What do we stand for?
We have been deliberately set up as a non-profit foundation with a social purpose. Offering high quality educational childcare is our absolute top priority, whereby every single child is central. It’s our mission to embark on an adventure with the children every single day, in order for them to find the very best version of themselves. Our Adventure, Fun, Learning and Attention core values are important to us and guide our policies and our working method. Our social commitment certainly also includes devoting plenty of attention to the world around us and we enjoy contributing to a sustainable green world, within which children can grow and develop healthily.
“Hero children’s centres reinvest their profit back into the organisation and offer care to all children”
As a social childcare organisation, Hero children’s centres explicitly opt for operational management in which the profit is reinvested in the organisation. This allows us to guarantee sustainable quality and allow for innovation. We want to be able to offer childcare to all children, including in those districts where it isn’t profitable, but where children are in dire need of such care. Hero children’s centres also want to ensure childcare facilities remain open and available in those districts where no profit is being made. We do this from a genuine sense of responsibility, which is widely supported within the organisation.
Who can make use of our services?
There will always be a local childcare facility for children aged 0 to 13 in Haarlem and Spaarndam offering toddler care, nurseries and out-of-school care. We are here for the parents too and we think it’s very important to be a complete and suitable collaboration partner for the education sector and the municipality. We allow children to discover themselves, develop partnerships with parents and help our employees to optimally develop, with a true passion for what we do. On their way to become the very best versions of themselves.
