Our daycares

Teddy Kids International Daycare Leiden opened its very first location at Herenstraat in 2004. Now 17 years later, we have grown to family owned and operated organisation with daycares in 4 different locations and 2 after school care locations (BSO). Spread out over these locations are ±75 highly qualified permanent teachers of varying nationalities and backgrounds. We pride ourselves on how we have evolved into our signature multicultural atmosphere.

Leiden has a large and diverse international community that is attractive for both work and studies. Places likes the LUMC, University of Leiden and Webster University or the BIO science park, among others, make it an attractive expat hub. It makes Leiden a great place for both Dutch and international communities, and that’s also why we moved here in the 1990s.

When we first moved to the Netherlands, and Leiden in particular, we were impressed by the international orientation of schools and the community, but we felt that there was a big gap for working expats to have their children attend international daycare, as well as a lack of bilingual opportunities for Dutch kids. As a result, we decided that we could make the transition to Dutch life smoother, while providing a gateway to other cultures for Dutch families. Building on our own experiences as expats, we built a company on the principle that Dutch and international children can learn and grow together.

We still believe that principle lays the foundation for a more globally aware and culturally sensitive society, and we do everything in our power to make that happen. That’s what makes us who we are and that what makes Teddy Kids a perfect choice for parents and kids who want to broaden their horizons and bridge the divide between cultures and countries.

You’re welcome to come round to any of our locations for a tour and a cup of tea, just give us a call.

Sincerely,

Irina, Marco, Tess, Artem, Maelyn, Zachar, and the Teddy Kids team

Why Teddy Kids 
daycare is 
your first choice.

Teddy Kids is here for you and your family. Coming from abroad to leiden or having a new baby, it's all a big transition. We are here to ease the transition, to help with the changes in your life, and help answer any question.

Our goal is not to only teach children English and Dutch. Our goal is to teach the children to adapt, to have the ability to learn any language, to adjust to any culture, to be a child of the world. Once they are grown up, they will be able to live, understand, and work in any country or culture. This is what creates an international child.

Daycare is the first step in a child’s international life and education and we are there, every step of the way to give them all the opportunities they deserve.

What Parents Say About Us

Chizu Matsushita

I was a desperate mum of a then 0-year-old daughter five years ago, starting a student life in Leiden alone, unable to find a daycare near home/university. TK offered a helping hand, and I have cherished our encounter and relationship to this day. My daughter was brought up by wonderful teachers and the TK management team for over one year until we left Holland. TK was extremely supportive, always considerate of my situation and offered help throughout our stay. Its flexibility and warm atmosphere cannot be found anywhere else. I know we are welcome anytime; I and my now-5-year-old daughter just visited them and we continue admiring them. THANK YOU, Teddy Kids!

Alice Mokhovykov

I've known Teddy Kids Palace for 5 years. Both my children went there several days per week since they were 4 months old. The teachers are totaly dedicated to the care of the children. They love what they do and we can see it. The management is also easy to reach and ready to help whenever they can. A lot of teachers are foreigners which is really nice because they speak English to the kids. My second daughter is now 3,5 and she understands English without any problem and is even beginning to talk back in English! I would advise Teddy Kids to any parent.

R Aruleswaran

I am a full-time working single mother. I started sending my baby from the age of 3 months. The team had been very cooperative, flexible and understanding of my needs. My daughter is always very happy to go there. She beams with smiles whenever I drop her off. The teachers from the baby group are jovial, attentive and helpful. Together they make a wonderful team. The international environment additionally makes this place more appealing for children from foreign backgrounds. I'd recommend Teddy's anytime to parents looking for a reliable, safe and fun childcare.
