Monkey Donky Speelhuis was founded over 20 years ago. Time flies when you’re having fun! To play, to discover ánd to grow: that is what our daycare organisation is all about. Come on in and find out!
Play stimulates a child’s creativity and imagination, and allows it to explore social and personal connections at the same time. We therefore consider creativity a very important foundation for a child’s growth and development. We offer children all the space they need. They can follow their own impulses and interests, allowing them to muster up their own solutions. Because after all, there’s no greater feeling than inventing the wheel all by yourself! Play encourages children to discover even more about not only themselves but also their (social) environment.
Monkey Donky Speelhuis is a professional and experienced organisation, where we focus on both you and your child(ren). With four locations in the city of Groningen, and two locations of our sister-organisation Het Toddlers Huis, there’s always a place nearby your home or work place. All locations have their own charm and appeal and offer a great variety in toys and colourful play corners, as well as quiet, cosy corners where children may withdraw with a book or puzzle. Additionally, our locations Hamburgerstraat and Oosterhamrikkade provide a large indoor playground with a ball pit, trampolines and slides.
Monkey Donky Speelhuis provides daycare for children ranging from 3 months to 4 years of age, and after school care for children from 4 up to 12 years of age. Both kids and parents benefit from continuity, and therefore each group has a permanent team of teachers. These familiar faces will welcome you every morning and make sure that you child has a great day!
Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 07.30 am to 6.30 pm. If necessary, you can inform about the possibilities for daycare starting at 07.00 am. On official holidays, Monkey Donky Speelhuis remains closed.
We fully understand that it isn’t alway possible to determine beforehand on which days you require daycare. Especially if you work flexible hours.
That is why we offer both flexible and fixed contracts. Flexible contracts allow you to pick and choose particular (parts of the) day. We also offer a zero-hour contract in which you only pay the hours you actually end up using. Please keep in mind that the availability of flexible contracts is limited.
We happily provide you with a tour and tell you about our daycare. We can understand you first wish to see Monkey Donky Speelhuis and see how we work, before you enroll your child(ren).
We can tell you about how our daycare works, how we care for your child, the daily schedules, the sleeping facilities, where the children play and, if applicable, who picks your child up from school. Just ask and we will answer any questions you might have.
You can request a tour here, and we’ll contact you as soon as possible. If you’d like to learn some more about the availability on the desired days first, you can check the availability here. We hope to see you and your child(ren) soon at Monkey Donky Speelhuis!
