True Colors Rijswijk offers day care and out-of-school care, including during school holidays. Our friendly and cosy atmosphere makes children immediately feel at home. Bright, sunny rooms and our own spacious garden and fantastic roof terrace form a world of play and creativity
I really enjoy guiding the children in their journey to discover what their interests and talents are.
I was born in Slovakia and moved to in the Netherlands in 2000. I have been working in childcare since 2004, and still enjoy it a lot! Especially the creative activities and reading books with the children. And I love giving the babies all the care and attention they need.
I like working with children because every day is different. They are spontaneous, impulsive and enthusiastic. To contribute to their development is my passion.
I’m married and have two children and 2 grandchildren. My hobbies are Diamond Painting and doing puzzles. I’ve been a housekeeper for True Colors Rijswijk since 2003. Working together with my colleagues and the enthusiasm of the children are what I love most about my job.
I’m a flexible, social and energetic member of our childcare team. The children are my first priority. I take time to play with them and during activities I try to teach them things associated with the theme we’re working on.
I’m an enthusiastic, creative pedagogical worker. I love to create a happy, exciting day with the children and I like to stimulate them in their development and interests.
Although I’ve been working in childcare since 1991, I still find it very special to see how much children learn in their first 4 years. Working with so many different nationalities gives me a continuous flow of inspiration. It’s great to work in a team I can build on, learn from and have fun with.
I love working with children and watching them grow and develop from a baby into a toddler.
I’ve been working at SRK since 2003. In 2007, I was appointed manager of the international childcare centres, now known as True Colors. What I love about my work is that, in between all the meetings, talking, thinking, schedules, policies etc, I can still get enormously distracted by all these wonderful children. I love chatting to them and giving them a big hug when I can.
I am assistant manager at True Colors Rijswijk. I enjoy being part of this beautiful team. Every day they bring energy, kind words and love for the children . It is great to see how teachers, children and parents have a strong connection and learn and explore together.
My name is Karima Ballafkih. I’m taking care of the warm meals at True Colors for more than 11 years now. Cooking is one of my favourite. And to see the happy faces from the childeren is so inspired.
Although I’ve worked in childcare for many years, I still find it great to see children develop through play, from a baby into a toddler.
I love to watch children grow and help them to develop themselves to become the amazing people that they are.
When I was young, I lived in America, Australia and England for a few years. Now, I live in Delft with my husband, son and daughter. Diving, snorkelling, traveling and crafts are a few of my hobbies. When we have time, we like to go to Zeeland to dive in the Oosterschelde
What I like about working with children is that every day is different. Children bring a lot of fun! I enjoy caring for them and guiding them. I also think it's very important to have good contact with the parents and guardians, so we all apply the same approach to bringing up the children.
I love working with children; watching them grow and develop. I enjoy dancing with them, fooling around, playing games and laughing together. I love the fact that I can help the children find solutions in little arguments or issues they have. When they’re happy, I’m happy.
I enjoy using my strengths, hobbies and creative mind to challenge myself and the children. I like organising and doing activities, using my cooking skills and applying my knowledge about nutrition. And I love doing sport and carrying out experiments in which I broaden the children’s horizon in a fun and playful way.
True Colors Rijswijk offers day care and out-of-school childcare to parents or guardians of all children from an internationally oriented background, who are either English native speakers or encourage English as a second language.
True Colors is located in Rijswijk, near The Hague. There is a bus connecting us to the British School in Leidschenveen and to the European School The Hague. Our childcare centre is located close to the European Patent Office and Shell EP.
Our out-of-school care for childeren aged 7 and above is combined with childcare centre KNUS in Rijswijk.
True Colors works bilingually with the children: one teacher speaks English with the child and another Dutch. This gives the child clarity and structure. In addition True Colors Rijswijk has Dutch groups, tailored to the need from the international community in Rijswijk.
And research shows that there are clear benefits for children who are brought up speaking more than one language.
At True Colors, we use the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). This programme focusses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in our childcare centre and in the world outside.
