Kids Lodge Acquires Childcare Center Het Zonnetje

Amsterdam, 18 December 2023 – Our portfolio company, Kids Lodge, has successfully acquired childcare center Het Zonnetje. This strategic move allows Kids Lodge to expand its childcare services and footprint in Houten.

Het Zonnetje is known for providing intimate childcare services with a focus on personal attention for each child. The two locations in Houten offer a comprehensive package of childcare arrangements for parents, emphasizing warmth, coziness, cooperation, prioritizing the child, and learning through play.

The acquisition of Het Zonnetje aligns with Kids Lodge’s growth ambitions. Building on previous acquisitions, including In de Rups Houten/Zeist (December 2021) and De Bereboot in Helmond (November 2023), this move represents the next step in Kids Lodge’s strategic expansion.

Louise de Ruiter (Director of Kids Lodge): “It is my dream to further establish Kids Lodge as a family center that provides childcare where children, parents, and employees can enjoy themselves and work with passion. We aim to create an environment that promotes the well-being and development of both children and employees, while also prioritizing parental support and fostering meaningful connections.”

Nancy Prick van Wely-Beswerda (Director of Het Zonnetje): “We are thrilled to have connected with Louise de Ruiter from Kids Lodge. The collaboration between Het Zonnetje and Kids Lodge is a valuable addition to the community of Houten. By combining the strengths and knowledge of both organizations, new possibilities emerge, allowing us to enhance our commitment to delivering high-quality childcare.”
