Sample text

Each group has two caregivers. Centre B is also in Amsterdam. This is a playgroup that is part of a community centre. Some 45% of the families in the neighbourhood belong to an ethnic minority group.

The lack of national rules for the organisation of child-care institutions is particularly clear from the differences between centres in the caregiver-child ratio.

The caregiver told us this was an effective practice to enable the children to learn to perform in public. Other activities we observed that afternoon included children playing with clay and puzzles, counting and reading aloud to the children. Time for free play was very limited. The language in the playgroup was Turkish. Centre I aims to offer children safe and developmentally enriching play facilities. The children are given a lot of freedom in their social behaviour. During our visit the group was engaged in a language game, singing songs, painting, free play, and the caregiver twice read a story.
