Going on an adventure
At a BLOS after school care centre children in the age of 4 to 13 years old can play in a safe and secure environment. After school, your child can relax, but above all do cool things. Because at BLOS, every day is an adventure!
Adventures are experiences. They make an impression and are something to remember later in life. At BLOS, children are free to spend their free time. We make sure to give children space, but also challenge them to explore, experiment, acquire new skills and discover their talents. At a BLOS after school care centre there is always something fun to do which will make the afternoons fly by!
Safely to after school care
BLOS works together with various primary schools located in the same area as our after school care centres. At fixed times and locations, we will pick up your child from school. The youngest children will be picked up at the classroom or brought to the pick-up location by their teacher. Our pedagogical staff can be recognized by the BLOS vest they are wearing. Depending on the location of the school, we will pick up your child on foot, by bicycle or using the BLOS bus. We always take the same route, of course, making sure safety always comes first!
Older children who wish to be more independent can go to the after school care centre themselves. As a parent, you decide whether they do so and at what time. To give permission for this, we ask you to fill in a consent form.
Relaxing from school
After school, we first have a moment to eat and drink something together. That way your child can unwind after a long school day and share stories. After that, it's time for action, whether that is together or alone. Does your child prefer to work quietly on his or her homework? No problem at BLOS!
Discovering talents with 'DoenKids!'
With the great activity program of DoenKids!, packed with cool and challenging activities, as well as our own activities, we offer an extensive, fun and educational program for your child. We believe it is important that your child develops through playing, learns something new every day and gets to discover his or her talents. We work with five different talent development areas which are part of each weeks program.
Follow your child's adventures!
Every week, we will inform you about the activity program at the after school care centre and send you nice photos and messages via the parent portal and app. That way, you can follow your child’s adventures.
Talent development in short
- So artful!
We encourage, help and challenge your child to explore. We do this, for example, by engaging in art, fashion, crafts and free expression. This way, we stimulate your children’s creativity helping them to discover their own talents. Nothing is off-limits, and all is possible!
- BLOS Lab
Your child can discover, experience and experiment. Being independent is an important quality, one we want your child to develop. Learning children to solve problems by themselves will increase their sense of freedom. That way, their confidence will grow. A wonderful basis for the future.
- This is me!
We will let your child be who it wants to be because every child is unique. Every child has its own preferences and we guide your child to discover, express and further develop his or her creative ‘talents’. We believe the process is more important than the result.
- Yes, naturally?
We introduce your child to nature’s wonders and its sustainability. This way, we encourage your child to deal with people and nature consciously. This helps your child to grow up to be more conscious and aware in discovering the world and enjoying all that nature has to offer.
- 3, 2, 1, GO...
For both big and small adventurers, nothing is as fun (and healthy) as being active. Your child will get to discover different kinds of sports and play activities and find out what he or she likes to do. 3, 2, 1, GO!
Open during school holidays and study days
We are open all day during school holidays. Your child can participate in our varied holiday program full of fun activities for all ages. Also during study days, your son or daughter is very welcome in the morning at the after school care centre of BLOS.
