Why choose Ska?
Early morning care
After-school care extra
When you get out of school, you want to do what you like. After all, it is your free time! First have a drink, tell your story and then… enjoy playing! Dress up as a pirate, knight or princess. Build the most beautiful aeroplane of Lego or organise a fashion show together. Fooling around with your friends, building a cabin outside, playing football together. Or how about just quietly reading a book or playing a game; of course, you can! Because after school it’s time to relax.
After-school care time is leisure time. That is why the children pick their own pastime. The pedagogical workers supervise the children and offer attention and structure. And of course, they organise all kinds of challenging activities, in which the children can participate if they feel like it.
Attractive range of activities
We offer children a challenging and varied programme with activities in the field of sports & games, nature, technology, culture and creativity. The children choose which activities they participate in. Every pedagogical worker has his or her own unique talent or specialism. We make full use of these talents. We also often work together with external parties.
During holidays and on school holidays we offer an extra-extensive programme filled with activities, workshops, clinics and excursions.
While you go to work early in the morning, your child can join in our after-school care or read a book before school starts. We escort the children safely to school; the youngest ones will be escorted to their classrooms.

Children have been our priority for more than 25 years!
We offer the children a challenging and varied programme, filled with activities, workshops, clinics and trips in the field of sports & games, culture, creativity and nature experiences. Every pedagogical worker has his or her own unique talent or specialism and we often work together with external parties. The children are free to choose the activities they wish to participate in.
Offer Schools of Art under after-school care time
Your child can follow courses and workshops at Scholen in de Kunst (art school programme) in after-school care-time with us! Fun for your child and easy for you as a parent!
As children grow older, they will receive – in close consultation with the parents – more responsibility. We work with independence agreements.
We carefully listen to the children’s wishes and ideas. The youngest children use creative ways of working to see what they want. Children from the age of 7 can participate in the children’s council and the teenagers will think up and organise their own activities for the most part.

Are you not a client of ours, and do you still need (unexpected) care? For example, because the school has planned an unexpected day off, because the babysitter is ill, because you suddenly have other obligations or because you want your child to participate in our fun holiday programme? Then our occasional childcare is for you!
We will discuss your wishes and personal details with you and then offer you a ‘0-hour contract’. Drawing up this agreement is free of charge.
Follow-up requests for incidental childcare can be made at our parents’ portal My Ska.
For information about the costs, see the rates page.
If you and your partner are working, following a training programme, a pathway to work or an integration course, you might be able to receive childcare benefit for incidental care. You can check the Tax Office’s website to see whether you are entitled to childcare benefit.
While you go to work early in the morning, your child can join our after-school childcare programme or read a book before school starts. We escort the children safely to school; the youngest ones will be escorted to their classrooms.

No early morning care in your neighbourhood (yet)?
If there is sufficient interest, we will also start pre-school childcare at a location near you. Please contact us for more information.
Some children need more than regular after-school care can provide. For example, because they need extra support, care or structure. For these children there is the after-school care-extra programme.
Your child will go to a regular after-school care and will receive extra supervision there. Together with you and in consultation with the school and any other agencies, we look at what is required. We will match your child’s specific needs for care as closely as possible.
Pedagogical specialists after-school care
Ska Childcare Centres employ pedagogical specialists for after-school care work. These are pedagogical workers with specific knowledge of and/or experience with children with behavioural and developmental problems. They support their colleagues in supervising children who need extra care or attention.
