The Maples Pre-School

In August 2017, at the beginning of the new school year, we opened our second Pre-School location in The Hague. The Maples Pre-School is located in the new purpose-built facilities on the edge of the campus of the European School of The Hague.  Located in the Bomenbuurt, on the edge of the Statenkwartier and de Vogelwijk, this pre-school location will be ideal for many international – and internationally oriented – families.

With large floor to ceiling windows and the beautiful wood furnishings from our own furniture line Dutch DeZein, this light and spacious eco-friendly building provides the same homely feel that our other centres are known for. The site also features a fully equipped natural playground of 500m2 – designed and zoned with all ages in mind.
