Coccinelle is a small-scale daycare center founded in February 2001. Located in the former Dominican Monastery “Albertinum” in the Groenewoud quarter which is 500 meters away from the Radboud Univerity, Medical Centre and HAN in a park-like environment.

Coccinelle, the French name for ladybug, gives your child a caring, structured living and playing environment with plenty of opportunity to be outside. We ensure a climate where children feel safe and secure to discover themselves, each other and the world. Both the supervision and the facilities are specially set up for this.

What do we offer?

Coccinelle has two babygroups for childeren aged 0 tot 2 years, two groups for childeren aged 1,5 to 4 years. There are permanent professional pedagogical staff members on the groups. The pedagogical staff will take the utmost account of your educational wishes into. Coccinelle greatly values a close relationship with parents in which transparent communication is important. Coccinelle offers professional and small-scale daycare. A team of professional pedagogical staff is present daily to attend to your child. In addition, there is also a member of the management on site every day. As a result, management is involved in the care of your child, the management knows the parents and is easily accessible for any questions.

Each child receives an individual approach on his or her own level bij the qualified staff. Coccinelle responds to the different levels of development for the children. Our toys invite children to play and development themselves. The presmises are light and colorful in tone, with separate play and activity corners.

For every activity, like playing, eating, resting and attending, there’s plenty of space at a fixed moment. In addition to the regular daily activities, Coccinelle also offers music for children from 0-4 years, under the guidance of a music teacher, cooking activities in the basement for children aged 2.5 to 4, and walking in the park of the Albertinum Monastery. Everything fits into our philosophy of a stimulating educational climate.
