Sixth location Zein International Childcare


THE HAGUE Zein International Childcare strengthens its position in the region of The Hague by opening its sixth location in Voorburg. With the remodelling of the monumental building known as ‘Huis de Werve’ progressing rapidly, registration has opened and the doors are scheduled to open in early March. From that moment, the location will be known as ‘The Little Castle’ – offering 62 day care places for children aged three months four years. For more information: 

Jan van der Meijden, co-founder of Zein International Childcare: “By turning this landmark location into a Zein Childcare centre we can introduce expats and internationally minded families in the Leidschendam-Voorburg area and beyond to the standards we set as a childcare provider. In addition to our unique pedagogic approach focusing on social-emotional competences, excellent service levels and passionate childcare professionals with international backgrounds - the physical surroundings and facilities are an important factor in making children and their parents feel safe and at home at Zein. The spacious property set within almost 5.000m2 of mature gardens will therefore be transformed to offer a luxury home-like environment, using a natural approach with stylish nature inspired wallpaper, soft carpeted areas and furniture from our own children’s furniture line ‘Dutch DeZein’. The picture will be completed by a large natural playground, private parking, a dedicated parents’ room and a fully equipped kitchen where the on-site chef will prepare fresh, organic warm meals for the children’’, says Van der Meijden.

Strategic location

Situated in one of The Hague’s most popular residential suburbs for international families, the choice of this specific location proves to be a strategic one; with various motorways in the direction of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht as well as campuses of international schools such as The British School in The Netherlands and De Haagsche Schoolvereeniging in the vicinity of the property.


‘Huis de Werve’ is not the first listed property for the childcare group, having transformed the well-known ‘Renswoudehuis’ in the Benoordenhout area of The Hague into a premium childcare location now known as ‘The Estate’ approximately four years ago. Their proven experience in respectfully remodelling and classically decorating a listed property into a suitable and fully equipped childcare location is further supported by architect Bureau Kroner, who ensures adherence to all the necessary restrictions regarding changes to a listed property. In this particular case, gemeente Leidschendam-Voorburg was closely involved.

Zein International Childcare invites interesed parties to come and take a look at the newly renovated location on Saturday March 10th at their Open Day. For registration, see
