Daycare 

In December 2016, we launched our pioneering childcare concept – quickly tagged by the news media as "Neuro Creche" – when we opened our new Daycare/Creche in Waterloo.

We have incorporated the same innovative concepts and design by "Spacious Minds" (www.spacious-minds.com), a collaboration between Dr Karen Dobkins, a Professor of Child Development at the University of California, San Diego and Dutch designer Roy Verbakel.

The internal layout, decorations, and equipment are based on scientific research into how babies' visual stimuli condition the development of their brains, and our designs optimise that development.

We also employ staff speaking at minimum English, French and Dutch, so the children are exposed to all languages throughout the day. However, we invite parents to specify which language they wish to use with their child; this is based on proven scientific research showing that early multilingualism increases and accelerates brain development.

The Waterloo Daycare extends our Preschool section in a beautifully renovated part of Oranje House within our existing school campus. 

The ISF (International School of Flanders) Daycare facility accommodates up to 15 children aged six weeks old and is open from 07.30 am until 5.30 pm.  ISF International Daycare is supervised by Kind & Gezin (Flanders' Child & Family Agency), and we are committed to your child's physical and mental well-being. We hire only professional staff and focus on providing a quality environment and creative learning experiences.  For enquires, contact Clementine Niyomwungeli on +32 04 87 30 23 22, or email isfwaterloo@isfdaycare.org

Our second Daycare/Creche opened in March 2017 in Tervuren-Vossem, an integral feature of our new campus ISF Tervuren. This daycare is licensed for 46 children aged six weeks old. Opening hours are also 7.30 am to 6.30 pm.

Our new Tervuren daycare occupies the entirety of the originalMR OSHI9340 village nursery school building but has been renovated, designed, and equipped to enhance children's visual stimulus in a scientifically positive way. And likewise, our staff are multilingual, always offering English, French and Dutch at a minimum – see these pages for more details.  To enquire, telephone Szilvia Szonyi +32 470 11 75 03, or email isftervuren@isfdaycare.org.
