Location manager

As one of the first employees at Oya's Childcare, I started as a Pedagogical Employee at the after-school-care.

Because the company kept growing, I could really express myself in establishing new groups, and so I later started filling in the Pedagogical Coach role. Since the beginning of this year, I've taken the next step, as I'm now the Location Manager at the IJsbaan Location. Because of the trust and the fun atmosphere, but also because of the pedagogical quality this company wants to offer, I feel right in place!


Pedagogical Employee (crèche)

I enjoy going to work every day because I love working with children, but certainly also because of the fantastic team at Oya's Childcare.

I've been working with the toddler group at our IJsbaan location for a year and a half (February 2021). Together we not only provide a safe and loving environment, we also contribute to the development of children, because of all the activities we do on a daily basis. On top of that, we pay a lot of attention to the development of us as employees, for example by granting access to our online learning platform.


Assistant Location Manager

Oya's Childcare offered me the BBL-course to become a 'Specialized Pedagogical Employee' a few years back.

During the course, I was able to apply the obtained knowledge into practice and so I emerged as a true Nanny from Oya's Childcare. Thanks to Oya's Childcare I was able to turn a passion into my profession. Because of the great guidance and pleasant atmosphere, I choose to follow an additional course for 'Pedagogical coach and policy officer'. By following this additional course, and internal courses on top of that, I managed to develop myself further in this professional area.

With us, the safety of children comes first. And the government thinks so too: it requires everyone who works at a place where children are cared for to register in the Childcare Personal Register (short in Dutch:PRK). For this you need a Certificate of Good Conduct (short in Dutch: VOG). With a VOG you prove that your behavior in the past hasn't formed any objections to performing your job.

Everyone working with us has a VOG, including employees who are not in the group.

The costs associated with applying for a VOG and/or registration in the Childcare Persons Register are fully reimbursed by Oya's Childcare.

Of course, your child(ren) can apply for group placement. We will do our very best to find, and offer, a placement as soon as possible in the preferred location.

Each semester a new group of BBLers starts. We are always looking for driven and nice new colleagues and are continually recruiting for the next group of BBLers.
