Vision of learning and education

A warm educational climate: well-being comes first!

De Klimboom

The team

We want our children to enjoy coming to school: success experiences every day for every child!
We focus not only on teaching factual knowledge, but also on encouraging the skills with which children can increase their knowledge independently. Attention to music, art, dance and expression should also be included. We think it is important that the children learn a lot about the world in which they live and that treating it well (environment) is a major task. Reflection with each other is important: children learn to reflect on their own learning and in doing so may and dare to make choices.

Machiel Aanraad

One way to learn is to mirror. As a principal, I hold up a mirror to others, others hold up a mirror to me, and I regularly look into it myself. With a mirror I can also transmit light to put others in the spotlight, which is what my team of committed teachers deserves.

Looking for day care, preschool or out of school care? We would like to welcome you and your child(ren) to our childcare at Kindcentrum De Klimboom on the Paardenhei in Best. 

We offer care for children aged 0-4 years in a baby group (0-2 years) and a toddler group (2-4 years). Toddlers can also take advantage of our preschool program. During school weeks, they can play and explore with other toddlers two mornings a week from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. using theme-based activities.  

For school-aged children ages 4-13, we offer bso before and after school. During vacation weeks and study days, we are of course also there for your child. And vacations wouldn't be vacations without lots of super fun activities!

Younger children are cared for at Kindcentrum De Klimboom. Children aged 7-8 or older are cared for at our location on Gildelaan (near the athletic club).  

For more information on our rates, visit
Do you have another question? If so, please contact the Customer Advice Department. Send an e-mail to [email protected] or call 040 – 294 89 95.

Children who are comfortable in their own skin develop optimally. We consider contributing to this our most important task. By creating a warm atmosphere with plenty of personal attention. And just as important: by starting from what children can do themselves, no matter how small they are. We give your child the space to invent and discover in their own way. To clamber and climb. To take initiative. To fall down once and get up again. To laugh together. And especially to color outside the lines. Because we believe that your child will benefit from this. 

You see them grow at Korein.  

Parent council

The purpose of the Parent Council is to support the school in its educational mission from the point of view of the parents and children.
In this role, the Parent Council represents all parents of De Klimboom.
The parent council thinks along with the school on issues such as housing and traffic problems, school hours and the layout of the schoolyards. In addition, the parent council wants to be the sounding board of the parents when it comes to the policy and implementation of education.

Here the parent council does not focus on individual situations, but on the collective interest of parents under "the umbrella" of the participation council (MR). Furthermore, the parent council organizes an annual parent meeting, the field day, the end-of-year party, prepares the school calendar. The parent council also supports various activities to make education even more fun, such as ANWB Streetwise and writer in the classroom.
In doing so, the Parent Council hopes to encourage and increase parent involvement in the school. The Parent Council consists of up to 11 members, who each serve for a term of up to 6 years.

The Parent Council currently consists of:

  • Sevgi
  • Naima
  • Mirjam
  • Milou (Secretary a.i / Note-taker parent council meetings a.i)
  • Oana (Treasurer)
  • Valérie
  • Ana (Secretary a.i)
  • Rik (Chairman a.i)

Email adres: [email protected]

This form allows teachers, parents/caregivers or committees within the Klimboom to request financial support from the Parent Council for a project or theme.

By clicking on this link clicking will take you to the project application form.

Thank you in advance for your inquiry!

Would you like to contribute to making an unforgettable elementary school time a reality for your child(ren)? You can!

Our school has an involved Parent Council that works with the teachers to provide extra school activities that are often lasting memories for children; think of the introductory camps, kindergarten parties, school trips, field day, new materials to work with (such as programming software, soldering irons), English classes, extra (read aloud) books, and the school photographer to capture your child in pictures each year.

Without enough Parent Council members, it becomes difficult to organize many fun extra activities. If you just want to take a low-threshold, no-obligation look at what we're all about by attending a meeting or speaking to one of the members, contact the Parent Council, via this link you can sign up.

Parent Council annual reports are published here:

Participation council

Kindcentrum De Klimboom has a participation council, MR for short. This council consists of 6 people: three teachers and three parents. Both sections (staff and parents) have the right to consent and / or advise on various topics such as personnel policy, school plan, school guide, vacation planning, housing and spending of the parental contribution. The management asks the MR for advice on these matters before making final decisions.

The Participation Council (MR) focuses on the collective interests of employees, students and parents. In order to bring issues to the attention of the MR, it is of course useful to know who the members of the Participation Council are. We would like to introduce ourselves!

In this folder you can read more about the goals of the MR.

Anyone who would like more information about the MR or would like to bring an issue to the MR's attention can speak to one of the members or send an email to [email protected]
Kind regards,
The Participation Council

Paardenhei 1,
5685 GW Best

  • Timon Nagel (Ouder)
  • Mariëlle Neggers (Parent)
  • Erwin van Nijnatten (Ouder; Voorzitter)

  • Marco Ronken (Teacher)
