The After School Program

About Us

The after school time is the perfect time for children to learn to be self-empowered and develop their emotional, social, and mental skills. Our goal is to inspire and challenge every child in an individual way, so that they will grow into independent, contributing individuals. We work with children ages 4 – 12.

Important guidelines for parents

Homework

Our homework time starts daily at 2pm (on Friday we do not have homework time). Homework time means we help your child with school homework for the next day. During homework class our children are guided by an experienced educator. To have the best results for your child we ask the following: – Make sure your child comes with the books, papers, pencils, pens and other utensils needed to make the homework Because schools have their own schedules for when what needs to be done, please inform us on time on the homework that needs to be done for the next day or for that week. Preferably on Fridays so we can prepare for the next week. If there is a teacher-parents Whatsapp group from the school where the teacher gives the homework, please send us that info so we are working with the school’s schedule. Does your child have a test or a presentation? Please tell us in time so we can help in preparing. For presentations we do not make the “aanschouwings materiaal” that needs to be done at home. We will help with the presentation itself.

Dress Code

Please dress your child in comfortable clothes that is not the school uniform. We will be busy moving around and doing many active projects throughout the year. If your child comes straight from school please make sure extra clothes are brought to change. For their own safety, please do not let your child wear jewelry. We are not responsible for loss of any earrings, watches or any other jewelry. Because Kura di Arte is a place used by many others, we advice to label your child’s water bottle and cap or hat when brought. Every Friday we will be outdoors at Parke den Dunki . We ask to to let your child wear comfortable clothes and firm shoes. Slippers are not allowed. Let them bring their water bottle as well.

Snacks

At K.I.M we promote a healthy lifestyle. Our snacks are fresh (fruit), with less (artificial)sugars and less or no preservatives (sweet/salty snack).
At Kura di Arte candy and ice cream are sold, but this is not part of our Afterschool and we do not promote most of the snacks that are sold. If you allow your child to buy at the snack stand we allow this after 4.30pm. Our kids are not permitted to share any of their money brought from home with others. The amount of money advised to bring is not more than Nafl. 3,-
Snacks from home are allowed to be brought. Candy and other  sweet snacks or chips can be eaten after 4.30pm.
Would you like your child to treat their friends at K.I.M for their birthday, please inform us about what kind of snack it will be. We have children that are intolerant (allergic) to certain ingredients.

Tutoring classes now available!

Whether they like it or not, going to school means dealing with new tasks like homework .
For some a new chapter in learning, for others an ongoing stress finishing it… How to finish a task all by yourself, why do I need to do this , when do I need to know all this, who can and who will help me with it…? Learning how to deal with homework and feeling comfortable doing it is a very important thing. Working towards a feeling of being secure and comfortable doing it is what we aim for!

We offer tutoring class for all kids from elementary school (basis school).
After an intake we decide with the parents the best day and time, and of course the child’s learning process.
