First bi-lingual Sports After School Care of The Netherlands

BIG NEWS

We are happy to announce that we will open our sports after school care on 4 January 2021!

Registration is possible now!


GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Location

Laan van Poot 38C, 2566 EC Den Haag.

Amforca-Sports BSO operates in SVV Scheveningen sports club's VIP/sponsors rooms. The location is officially checked and accepted by the Dutch authorities as a daycare location.

  • Rooms

The room is big and bright with big windows viewing at the main football field of SVV Scheveningen. The main room provides space for playing, drawing and so on. A smaller quiet room is available to do homework.

  • Capacity

Amforca-Sports BSO has room for 34 children in total. However, we have decided to start with a maximum of 30 children. Maximum of 11 children per one care-taker. Additionally, we have more sports coaches at the location to look over the children.

RATES

  • Background

The rates include sports programmes in addition to the base rate of after school care. Prices are dependent per hours and packages.

  • Hourly Rates

52 week package: prices starts from 9,25 €/hour

40 week package: prices from 10,85 €/hour

  • Additional costs

If you wish to register your child(ren) in holiday camps additional cost will be added depending on the number of days and camps.

  • Government subsidy

Booking 52 or 40 weeks of after school care including the sports club activities will get you the credit from the government.

Booking a sport in the afternoon with a direct parent pick-up after the sports activity and therefore without registering for the after school care will not allow to get the credits.

SPORTS ACTIVITIES

  • Activities included

The existing sports lessons www.amforcakidsclub.com/houtrustschedule will be implemented in the sports after school care as well, so your child will choose one of those sports activities. For the Wednesdays, there will be general outdoor sports activities and also adventure activities in the dunes nearby for the after school care children and we might add new regular programmes for that days as well.

  • Price

The sports activities are included in the price, which makes this concept special.

Your child can choose a sport, but once you have chosen an activity, we would like the children to commit to one sport for at least 10 times (around 3 months) or ideally longer since our idea is to promote the structure and the effect of learning, because this is what the word 'training' stands for: regular training will help to get better.

Of course, there is always the chance to switch in general when there is a good reason for it (also within these 3 months):

a) if your child really thinks that she/he likes something else more

b) if your child seems to fit better to another sport or group or age group and if a switch is also suggested by our coaches, for example.

FAQ

· Which schools are concerned (apart from the ESH)?

We intend to pick-up from other schools close to our location, but we intend to pick-up children from HSV and the French school as well.

· Is there a way to book, eg. 2 hour per day, or is it a package : 15:30-18:30?

If you just want less hours, we can recommend the Kids Sports Club concept, which is just the sports activities as we have them now without Dutch government subsidy. Then pick up is at around 17 h (depending on the kind of sport and day).

· Are the transportation costs (from school to BSO) included in the price?

This depends on the location, as for some schools a bus service is needed. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

· Will sports camps still be offered for various school holidays? Since not all schools do have the same holidays throughout the year: will you continue offering sports camps for these other schools, regardless of your BSO activities?

Yes, we have been also offering after school programmes at the moment in addition to the sports camps for the children of the other schools until now, and we intend to continue with it.

· When will the contract be ready?

Since our whole software system including the online contract procedure is still in the set-up phase, we kindly ask you to be patient with the official contract, which will be sent out to the parents in December once everything is put in place.

FYI: Until the whole system is in place, the rule is as follows: Once we have confirmed your registration by mail, this counts as an official confirmation and it means that your registration is accepted for the requested days at the Amforca-Sports BSO.

· Which foods are provided?

We offer healthy snacks and food including vegetables and fruit every day. For now, we plan to offer a warm lunch on Wednesdays, and we plan to have cold snacks or warm snacks on the other days.
