A welcome addition to the community with healthy food for parents and children and a fun and safe environment for the kids!

All our food is prepared plant based (vegan) with many vegetarian or meat options available.

Kids have a healthy choice of fruits and veg as well warm and cold sandwiches tosti's and plant based yoghurts.

For the parents too we have a wide vaierty of tasty meals from chia pudding, to salmon and a range of pastries.

The location boasts a huge 1000m2 garden fully equipped for the BSO so all toys and facilities are child proof!

Indoor we haev a 80m2 play area for the small kids fully padded. For the bigger kids a giant bouncy castles where they can jump out their energies.

In the summer we have swimming pools, face painting and poffertjes made fresh by our very own Els!

We look forward to welcoming you and have a nice relaxing and joyful moment at the Teddy Cafe!

Our Cafe

Teddy Kids International Daycare Leiden opened its very first location at Herenstraat in 2004. Almost 15 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 ±50 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.

The International
Cafe of Leiden

Your delicious and fun stop in the city!

The International
Cafe of Leiden

The First Steps Towards
Becoming a Global Citizen

Teddy Kids 
your first choice.

Our cafe comes from the desire to have a fun and joyful moment not just by yourself, but with your little previous ones!

How many times have you gone to a cafe only to find a little (and sometimes unlcead corner)?

Your son or daughter is sat at a table and given a coloring page which all too soon (30 seconds?) is no longer interesting!

And the food? Kids eat plenty of healthy food! Why is only fried food and cheap tostis offered in most places.

At Teddy Cafe we offer you and the children the same food as our daycare and more!

Kids can choose from a variety of fruit platters, warm biological lunches and tostis made with the best cheese, hams and freshly daily baked bread.

For the parents smoothies, avo toasts and beautiful platters are available!

Why Teddy Kids 
cafe 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.

Our qualities

we love what we do we do it with passion


We are a flexible daycare: Reuse missed days, change days with 1 day notice, full days, half days, flexible hours and much more!


One English and one Dutch speaking teacher in each group. Give your child a head start towards becoming a Global Citizen.


We understand your culture and do everything we can to help your child integrate. We can accommodate any diet, follow a specific schedule, and answer all your questions.


That’s right! No cancellation period! Sometimes your job changes, or you are relocating: 1 day notice is enough.


We try to buy as many biological products as possible to give the children. The milk is free of additives, a lot of variation in fruit & vegetables, and all the children get warm biological food by Moekes!


We gladly help expats with the kinderopvangtoeslag or other government/tax related issues. Moving to leiden? We are here for you! That’s why Teddy Kids is also a little Expat centre! We've been doing this for years. ;)

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.
