The Willows Day Care

In January 2020, Zein re-opened The Willows, a brand-new and purpose-built facility located on the premises of the The British School in The Netherlands (BSN, Leidschenveen Campus).

The Willows has 3 day care groups, including a bilingual option for families who want their children to be exposed to both English and Dutch. The site offers three times the amount of space per child than standard Dutch childcare centres and a professional, dedicated chef prepares healthy, organic and warm meals and snacks on site. For outdoor fun, the natural, landscaped playground is equipped with age appropriate areas.

Most of the children go on to the British School when they reach school age – but the location is open to all families interested in international childcare.
