Gardening with love

Tiles are out, green is in! Op Stoom has developed a gardening vision in which nature prospers. This has a reason; your child will have a lot to discover in nature. We want to provide the opportunity to him or her to play outside and roam around in nature, children love this and it is beneficial to a healthy development.

For hunters, dreamers, rascals, artist and pastry makers.

We have created green gardens, everywhere possible. De gardens are adventurous and offer a peaceful space at the same time. Outside there is even more room to make your own choices. Who you want to play with and what you want to do. Or if you don’t want to play, but just want to hang out in the grass. The scrubs differ in height and are great for hide and seek. And of course, don’t forget the animals; there are insects, worms, toads and salamanders.

We are curious to see your child in our gardens. Is your little one a pastry makers or a rascal? So many children, so many games to play outside. Together with the other children you can try anything in our garden. Climbing up a small tree trunk is less scary when you have a friend who joins you, and going on a worm hunt together is an exciting adventure.

Explore the boundaries

The discovery of nature and the development of (climbing and clambering) skills requires an active attitude on our part. Often looking at and monitoring your child is enough. Children gauge very well what they themselves dare to do and what they can do. We will offer them a helping hand when they need it.

We teach children to pay attention and to use their hands when they climb. Or how to climb down a hill when it is too high to roll down from. We encourage children to try new things. Every child develops a little spunk at their own pace, pretty neat for when they grow up.

A question for you

We haven’t talked about our mud kitchen yet, but we have a request. Playing with mud in our outside kitchen gets messy, climbing and clambering helps with the muddiness. Could you make sure your child wears comfortable clothing that can get dirty? That makes it easy for the kids and for yourself!
