Zonnelicht day-care centre
Every day at the Zonnelicht day-care centre in Den Bosch, we inspire children to discover themselves. The goal? Happy and loving children who are in touch with themselves, others and the world. Every child has every opportunity to grow into a responsible, self-aware, hopeful, sensitive and creative human being who can make a contribution to the world. A child that is aware of his or her own unique talents and possibilities.

We are innovative in our approach and an inspiring example of how childcare can make an important contribution to the development of a new generation.

Green, healthy & sustainable
At the Zonnelicht, many opportunities have been created to grow up in a green and nature-friendly environment. The children can often be found at the children’s farm, the Oosterplas, the gnome wood and the butterfly garden. The natural playground and large vegetable garden are also within walking distance of the childcare centre. In addition, a great deal of attention is paid to a sustainable lifestyle when supervising the children. And of course we pay a lot of attention to healthy food in our nutrition policy as well.
