Funtazia International child care at the American International School of Rotterdam


The American International School of Rotterdam (AISR) is opening an international, multi-lingual child care center, the "Funtazia International Child Care," starting in fall (August / September) 2013.

This flexible and unique extension of AISR will be located on the AISR campus (Hillegersberg, Rotterdam) and will offer a true home away from home for all children from 0 to 3 years old.

Funtazia International Child Care

Taking care of your little ones and having an international career at the same time can be quite a challenge for international families living in the Netherlands. Finding appropriate English-speaking, and / or multi-lingual care for your children in a foreign country can pose a whole new set of challenges.

The predominant language that will be used at the Child Care Center will be English. However, some activities will be conducted in Dutch (and possibly in additional languages) to stimulate the cognitive development of your child.

Bi-lingual, or even multi-lingual, upbringing is becoming more and more common. Children at a young age find learning a new language very easy, in fact, the younger the better.

An important condition for a successful multi-lingual upbringing is that the child receives adequate support and stimulation, and is taught by someone who has an excellent command of the language.

The Child Care Center offers:

 Brand new facilities, built and furnished according to the highest standards / specifications.

 Flexible child care: Many parents have varying working days / schedules or like to be more flexible in their choice of days regarding child care.

It is possible for you to decide which days, and which portions of the day, you wish to bring your child to Funtazia. Adjustments to your child's schedule can be made on a quarterly basis.

 Dedicated indoor and outdoor play space with a separate sleeping area.

 Qualified child care staff, often with an international background.

 Structured activities that will lay the foundation for future academic development.

Child care services will be available Monday through Friday, from 8am until 6.30pm, and prices will be competitive with other Dutch upper level child care facilities.

Pre-registration is open!

Places for children at Funtazia International Child Care will be allocated on a "first come, first served" basis, therefore if you are interested in securing a spot for you child, please fill out the pre-registration form.
