Types of Contracts

Which kind of childcare contracts has Teddy Kids to offer ?

Daycare (KDV)
Teddy Kids offers three types of contracts where you choose a full day or a half day.

  • Full Day: 7:30 – 18:30
  • Half Day Morning: 7:30 – 13:00
  • Half Day Afternoon: 13:00 – 18:30

A daycare contract will be created based on full or half days, and the number of days in the week you plan for your child to attend.

After school care (BSO)
For after school care, Teddy Kids offers a 52-week contract which includes school vacations.

The hours for after school care are as follows:

  • Regular school days: 15.00 – 18.30 (depending on school hours)
  • During school vacations: 7:30 – 18:30

Before school care (VSO)
We also offer an optional before school care programme from 7:30 – 9:00 (during regular school days). Please enquire with us which schools are available.

Note! When school is out of session, Teddy Kids after school care offers only full-day care. No half days are available for when school is closed. Therefore, you will be billed for school holidays, even times when you are away on vacation. This policy enables us to offer a full programme to all children all year round. Most importantly, this policy ensures your child has a space at Teddy Kids.

Can i choose myself which days i want my child to attend daycare?

Flexibility is number 1 at Teddy Kids! We allow various combinations of contracts, including contracts for 2, 3, 4 or 5 days a week, depending on the location. Booking only half days is also possible.
Let us know what you need. We're happy to create a schedule that works best for your family, so long as space is available.

Is there more flexibility for drop-off and pick-up?

Yes! Flexibility is number 1 at Teddy Kids! Here are our options for drop-off and pick-up times:

On demand
Some days you need to come a little earlier or a little later. We understand. Therefore, we can extend the hours by 15 minute blocks so you can drop your child off as early as 7:00 or pick them up as late as 19:00. Parents are kindly requested to discuss extended hours beforehand so our staff is well prepared for your child.

Flexible hour contracts
Additionally, we offer contracts with flexible hours. This essentially means you can choose your own hours between 7:00 and 19:00. “Flex contracts” come at an additional fee of €1 per hour. Such contracts are limited and are subject to availability. We’re happy to discuss the options that work best for your family.

What are contract days?

Contract days are the days of the week that your child regularly attends, which is agreed upon once your contract starts.

For example, you may request full days for Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. These three days are considered your contract days and therefore every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the month are considered booked for your child.

You may also have a contract for five days a week, in which case your child's space is guaranteed for every day we are open. We have room for your child whenever you need it!

In most instances, Teddy Kids requires a minimum of two days a week per week for daycare, depending on the location. Contact us to see if we are able to accommodate your needs. Flexibility is number 1 at Teddy Kids and we will do our best to design the contract that's right for you!

What is the benefit of a contract for 5 days a week?

The number 1 benefit of a full-time contract is that your child’s space is guaranteed for every day we are open. We have room for your child whenever you need it!

How easy is it to change my contract?

We are happy to make changes to your contract at any time with no penalties. Please contact us as soon as you know you need to change your child’s contract days. Write to admin@teddykids.nl.

Remember that cancelling or booking an extra day on an ad-hoc basis is possible without any changes to your contract. Changes to the contract are for permanent amendments.

What if I want to book an extra day every week from now on?

Remember, we’re flexible! Booking an extra day in Zaycare now and then is no problem. If you need to book extra days on a permanent basis, however, then you must request a change to your contract by sending an email to admin@teddykids.nl. We’re happy to create the schedule that best suits your family.

What if I want to book an extra day for only next week?

Through Zaycare parents can make their own schedule changes. Whenever possible, please do not ask the teachers to change the schedule for you. The children are the teachers first priority. Thanks a lot!

To book extra days, log in to Zaycare and go to the calendar in the planning section.

Green dot = space available to book your child
Red dot = full for the moment, not possible to book at this time

If a day is full in the calendar but you are stuck to find alternative childcare, then please contact the head teacher of your location to see if he or she is able to help. Teddy Kids is more than happy to help where we can.

Is there really no penalty for stopping a contract?

We want to make your daycare experience as pleasant and as simple as possible, so our policy is, no cancellation fees! There is no penalty for ending your contract. If you want to stop coming to childcare tomorrow, then ending your contract shouldn't be a problem. Just contact us as soon as you are ready. Write to admin@teddykids.nl.

Remember! Once you end your contract, your child’s space at Teddy Kids is no longer available.
