Read here the 5 tips to properly set up a nursery. But also for parents to choose a good nursery based on the design. How do you actually do that? How do you properly set up a nursery, BSO or childminder family? It is not such an easy job, because it is not the same as decorating your living room. A beautiful large open space with certainly also specific characteristics and requirements needs its own form of insight. You are looking for insights that get the best out of the space and create a space where everyone who needs to be there also wants to be, and feel at ease.
What most pedagogical staff do know is that when a child plays in a large open play area, it is more difficult for him or her to concentrate. They get too many stimuli from everything that happens around them and don't feel trusted. By creating a few corners in the play area, children already feel more protected and create their own play area, allowing them to delve more deeply into their toys or work.
These angles also create regularity in the room and so pedagogical staff have a better overview of the children. This way they have more time to guide and inspire children.
The first tip is to create small play islands where children can play clearly. As a parent, you pay attention to whether the space contains it or not.
The second tip has to do with safety and security. You create this by making smaller, self-contained places in the room. Also place through soft and comfortable elements in the room. That play mat that you can play on. Or, for example, a low sofa where you can relax. But also a place where you can sit in the circle with your pedagogical employee and children and start the day together. As a parent you can also see whether these elements are present in a nursery.
The third is to create peace. You do this by repeating patterns, elements and colors. This creates unity in space. As a parent, you may wonder whether the spacious gives peace or not.
The fourth tip is about the bright colors such as red, yellow and blue and also green. These colors are still favored by daycare designers, furniture and toy manufacturers, but isn't it overwhelming for kids and PMs? Children are already very colorful in themselves. White, greys, natural tones and wood provide peace and give us a warm feeling.
The fifth tip is about challenges. Children can already be challenged by the simplest things. Let them put their toys in and out of bags of boxes or boxes. Cars do a great job when you let them race through a tube.
These are the five tips I can give for setting up a nice safe and attractive nursery. With these tips you can continue with the choices for material, colors and layout of the play area. As a parent, you can certainly also pay attention to these elements when choosing a suitable BSO nursery or childminder.

Hey Hello, we are Melanie and Joost and have two children Max and Fleur. If you have lost us, we are on the water, because we love sailing. We met at Orionis the Amsterdam student sailing club, where I organized the competition, and Joost won the competition.
Together with my husband I like to go out with camper "Goofy".

Binnen de professionele kinderopvang is de inrichting van een verschoonplek een van de belangrijkste aspecten van de werkplek. Veel baby’s, peuters en kleuters worden in de loop van de dag, meerdere malen en vaak door verschillende verzorg(st)ers verschoond. Daarom staan veiligheid en ergonomie voorop. Uiteraard is de hygiëne ook een heel belangrijk punt.
My company was founded during my first maternity week. In 2016 I gave birth to my son, because of my delivery I suffered from pelvic instability where I was advised to walk as few stairs as possible. Joost, my husband, made the first model wall changing table as a maternity gift and hung it on the toilet so that I did not have to walk upstairs to change our son.
He received plenty of compliments from maternity care and midwives. They also told me that there may be more parents interested in this handy product
