A lovely, nurturing atmosphere with staff who genuinely care. The daycare facility is very spacious (a rarity in central Amsterdam) and outdoor play is also prioritised. The children are very happy, well-fed and encouraged to explore and develop in their own unique ways.

As we came from a different daycare where they called me on a daily basis at 11.00 o' clock in the morning to pick up our crying and unhappy son, we decided to change daycares.My son not being happy and me as a new mother restless and worried everytime my phone rang, that it would be the daycare calling, was reason enough for this decision. In the back of our minds we were afraid that changing daycare wouldn't change anything, and maybe it was just the case that our son was not the 'daycare' type, but anyhow we wanted to give it a shot. 4 weeks ago we had a our first meeting with the owner of TLP, Yael. The moment we walked in TLP we already got a warm feeling inside. It felt like a warm family welcoming us. Yael has a lot of experience and was happy to share it with us. She and her lovely team promised us that there was no way they couldn't make our son happy. After the first trying-out day, I picked up a super happy baby, who wasn't even so excited to see me, haha. It made me emotional because it was such a relief. And all the days after this repeated itself. Im so thankful and relieved that our paths have crossed. My baby is a happy baby and we are happy parents because we know that our baby feels save and is relaxed. A daycare is not just a daycare. There are differences. And this is just the best one of all.

The Little Prince has been like a second home to our son since he was six months old. He spends five days a week there and the ladies taking care of him became his best friends. He knows them very well and they know him, it is nice to have this kind of consistency in a child’s life. The Little Prince is a boutique daycare in our view, small enough to offer personal attention and care which is one of the reasons why we, as well as our son, like it very much. It is also perfectly located near WTC and Station Zuid and easily accessible for working parents. We simply like The Little Prince in all aspects!

The Little Prince is een heel bijzondere plek. De eigenaresse weet met haar jarenlange ervaring een gemoedelijke sfeer te creëren die voor kleine kinderen en hun ouders prettig is. Ze stelt hoge eisen aan haar personeel, wat resulteert in een kleine groep betrokken medewerkers met oog voor detail. De kinderen staan centraal, naar hen wordt gekeken. Maar ze worden ook geholpen om dingen te leren die bij hun leeftijd passen. Daar komt bij dat de opvang erg flexibel is. Geen verwijzingen naar administratieve afdelingen bij een vraag om een dag te ruilen, een e-mailtje is voldoende. Voor ouders die proberen werk en gezin te combineren is dit een perfecte opvangplek.

The Little Prince is een hele fijne en warme plek, onze dochter gaat er met heel veel plezier naar toe. Er is veel persoonlijke aandacht voor de kindjes en ook voor de ouders. Gezellig samen eten (ook gestoomde groentes) dansen, zingen, knutselen en buiten spelen (eigen afgeschermde speeltuin) horen bij het dagelijkse programma. Binnenkort zal onze jongste dochter ook naar de créche gaan en wij weten zeker dat ook zij een hele fijne tijd bij de juffies van the Little Prince zal hebben!!

Both our girls started at the Little Prince upon our arrival in Amsterdam. One is in the toddler group and one in the infant group. We felt very welcomed and at home at the daycare and loved the nurturing and warm environment from the get go. The fact that none of us speaks Dutch yet has not been a problem and that was also a great surprise. All the teachers take time to explain everything and take great care of our girls who seem very happy to come in the morning and play and participate in all the activities. We can only recommend the team at the Little Prince!

We gladly recommend the Little Prince as a warm, loving and nurturing environment for young toddlers and a caring, educational and fun one for older children. Our first born has been with the little prince for almost 2 years, starting at just older than one year. Leaving the protective and known home environment to an unknown and Dutch speaking kindergarten was very difficult for him. The adaptation period was long and tough, but luckily for him and for us, the team was very tolerant, loving and professional and made him feel safe, welcome and loved. As parents, we are extremely happy with the team’s level of care and dedication. We know that each day he is going to a loving environment with lots of great care. The team give the kids lots of love and attention throughout the day and ensures that they children spend time outside playing and going for walks (when possible..). The smile on his face when he sees the staff in the morning says it all! With our second child, we didn’t think twice…

The Little Prince is an excellent daycare and has been a wonderful choice for our family. My son is in the Toddler classroom and has really flourished there, despite English being our family’s primary language. The teachers are so kind and loving and we can tell they are knowledgeable and engaged in the curriculum each and every day. The atmosphere was very welcoming to our family and they took great time and effort to help our son transition into the program when he began. Our son looks forward to going to Little Prince every day because he feels safe and loved and has a fun day of learning. We are very pleased with our choice and are happy to recommend The Little Prince to others!
