The Estate (BSN)

The stunning listed building was completely renovated, remodelled and modernised in 2014 and is now recognised as one of the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly listed buildings in the Netherlands. With over 3000m2 of natural landscaped gardens - designed specifically for the different age ranges of the children in our care - this really is a childcare location to envy others.

The Estate location is attended exclusively by students from the Diamanthorst and Vlaskamp locations of the British School in The Netherlands. At the end of the school day, the students are picked-up by our carers and transported to The Estate by bus (5-10 minutes drive).
