Daycare and Creche
In April 2017, we launched our second pioneering childcare concept – quickly tagged as "Neuro Creche" by the news media.
www.spacious-minds.com), a collaboration between Dr Karen Dobkins, a Professor of Child Development at the University of California, San Diego, and a Dutch designer Roy Verbakel.Our first Daycare opened in December 2016 on our Waterloo campus, and following its success, we launched our second Daycare in Tervuren. We have incorporated the same innovative concepts and design by "Spacious Minds" (
The internal layout, decorations, and equipment are based on scientific research into how babies' visual stimuli condition their brains' development, and our designs optimise that development.
We also employ staff speaking at a minimum English, French, and Dutch, so children are exposed to all languages throughout the day. However, we invite parents to specify which language they wish us to use with their child – this is also based on proven scientific research showing that early multilingualism increases and accelerates brain development.
The Tervuren Daycare/creche is housed in Boch House and occupies the entirety of the original village nursery school building but has been renovated, designed, and equipped to enhance children's visual stimulus in a scientifically positive way.
Our Daycare/creche facility receives up to 46 children aged six (6) weeks old and is open from 07.30 until 18.30. ISF 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. Contact Szilvia Szonyi at +32 (2) 470 11 75 03, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
