The Estate Day Care

Located in the Benoordenhout area of The Hague, 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. The Estate has both English language groups and a bilingual option for families who want their children to be exposed to both English and Dutch. With over 3000m2 of landscaped gardens – designed specifically for the different age ranges of the children in our care – this really is a childcare location to envy others.
