Children's House:

The children have their classrooms as a base and begin the afternoons with a snack and drink. The children choose which workshop they wish to participate in and by groups are taken from the classroom to the workshop/activity. After the activity, they will return to the classroom to work, or perhaps to join another activity. Between 17:00 and 18:00, all children return to their classrooms where they can be picked up by their parents. During this time they are able to play games, continue working, or have a circle with their Montessori leader. If the weather is nice, their Montessori leader may also decide to go outside with all the children to play.

Swimming lessons

Casa offers swimming lessons for children ages 4-6 years. They can get their A diplomas during this period. Do you want your child to participate in swimming lessons? Then please sign up with the pool 'Viergang' Pijnacker. You will need to stop by the reception of the 'Viergang.' Please state that it is for swimming lessons with Casa. Please also send an email to [email protected] to inform us of the registration. 

You will be placed on the waiting list, so please register your child right away. Once there is space, you will be informed by us.

Judo Lessons

Casa offers judo classes for children from the Elementary, who are registered for the BSO, at 'Sportinstituut Pijnacker.' If children wish to participate, they first need to speak with their afternoon teacher. After finding out when there will be space for them to join, a judo suit will need to be purchased from the Sportinstituut. This needs to be purchased with cash only; they no longer offer automatic debiting.

Lower and Upper Elementary may choose if they wish to participate in Judo. Once they have selected this, they will attend every Thursday. These children will need their own judo suit.

You can purchase a judo suit from the 'Sportinstituut Pijnacker.' For this, you may bring an envelope to administration with € 20.00, the name of your child, and 'Judo.' You can also fill out an authorisation form at the administration office.
