Librijn is responsible for the public primary schools in Delft and Rijswijk and Stichting Rijswijkse Kinderopvang (SRK) is available for children from 6 weeks to 12 years. IKC De Eglantier has a playgroup, a day care centre, pre-school care and out-of-school care (including school holidays). SRK provides childcare in many locations in Rijswijk, The Hague and Delft.
At IKC De Eglantier we work on the basis of a jointly supported pedagogical and educational vision that is performed by one team. IKC De Eglantier operates as one organization. We do this together for the benefit of all the children. Professionals and parents work together in the IKC to give support tailored to the development of the children. Parents and children are given the opportunity to make their own choices from the services offered at IKC De Eglantier. This makes it easier for parents to combine work and care between 7:30 to 18:30.
International Primary Currciculum
We strive for optimal upbringing and education for each child. We do this by providing a cohesive curriculum of continuous developmental trajectories for children from 0 to 12 years based on the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and Bilingual Primary Education (TPO). The International Primary Curriculum is an integrated, thematic and creative curriculum for children aged 2 to 12 years which focusses on the creative and social studies subjects. The IPC is compiled with high standards in terms of learning.
Bilingual Primary Education
Bilingual Primary Education is a pilot project from the Ministry of Education in which we have chosen to participate. In the school year 2016-2017, we started with conducting 30 percent of the teaching time in English in groups 1 and 2. In the schoolyear 2018-2019 groups 1 to 4 started with bilingual education. In the schoolyear 2019-2020 this will be extended to groups 1-5.
Early Bird and Benny's Playground
The childcare works with Benny’s Playground, a teaching method that introduces the English language in a playful manner to toddlers.
