Teacher vacancy at Afterschool care (BSO)

No day is the same in the job as a pedagogical employee at the Hestia BSO. Freedom, creativity and nature are really the core here. According to BSO employees, that makes it a super fun and varied job. What sets us apart?

Working at Hestia

Inspiring environment where natural development is key. Think of Reggio Emilia, Montessori and Steiner as important pedagogical influences which we put into practice in their entirety. Hestia has developed her own training courses and will ensure that you are an expert in the field of natural child development after a while.
Lots of freedom and creativity in your work. Within our working method you are free to apply your own interpretation to activities and use your own talents. Whether that be creativity, sport, history, nutrition, mindfulness or an enormous fascination for nature, everything is equally valuable and possible within our framework.
To the Rijksmuseum, Naturalis and nature playgrounds. At our BSOs we let children discover the world of culture and nature in an adventurous way. Our outings during the holidays are unforgettable for both the children and our employees.
An international environment where we celebrate culture and diversity. Because our childcare locations are bilingual (at least 30% English and at least 50% Dutch) and the pedagogical vision is unique, this attracts people from both the Netherlands and places from all over the world. That means that we are now a close-knit international family where cultures and backgrounds are celebrated.
We stand for sustainable change. Hestia is innovative in the childcare sector. We are in the process of becoming Bcorp certified and think about our impact on the climate, the environment and society. In the coming years we want to further expand on the permaculture concept.

"I choose Hestia firstly because I deeply love the use of different approaches that I already knew, and was very exited to be able to use them myself. The bilingual environment played also an very important part when I chose. Here I can express myself fully and always, without feeling uncomfortable because of a language barrier. I enjoy most to co create with my colleagues, we are all a team it doesn’t matter from witch land. We collaborate to allow everyone to have a good time."
