Princess Ariane Day Care

Located in Noordwijk, the Princess Ariane centre was established to serve the needs of parents working at the adjacent European Space Agency, although non-ESA employees are now welcome to apply for a place for their child.  Unlike other Zein locations, this centre also offers Dutch speaking groups. This spacious and purpose build location provides high quality care for an increasing number of long term international residents.


This location is run by Zein under contract to ESA. Under the terms of the current agreement, we have decided not to renew our tender for the centre.  The ESA is therefore now opening up a new tender process for the management of the Princess Ariane location, with the intent that a new childcare company will be in place from January 2017
