Personcal care

We listen and take your wishes and preferences seriously. Thanks to our years of experience, we can find the perfect match. The care given to your child is monitored and evaluated.


Be Kind is financially healthy. We are an approved agency, and are inspected by the Public Health Service of Amsterdam (GGD) annually. Our childminders comply with the statutory requirements and our own additional screening protocol.

It’s all about the child

Your child’s welfare is the primary focus of our services. Our pedagogical policy, which is followed by our childminders, describes how your child’s care is safeguarded.

I have worked as a childminder at Be Kind since 2013. In my role as a childminder(s) and an entrepreneur, I feel a strong sense of support in all aspects of childminding. This includes training, personal contact, advice on pedagogical issues and business aspects. The quality offered by Be Kind matches the vision of my own company Littleguesthouse. Together we represent high quality and loving childcare.

All the childminders at Be Kind are incredibly involved and professional. Be Kind thinks with parents from their perspective and offers solutions. Contact is always smooth and positive! Be Kind really has the best interests of everyone at heart. Be Kind always listens to your concerns as a parent and takes you seriously. That’s so positive! As a member of the parents’ committee, I look behind the scenes and am asked to contribute to policy amendments, for example.
