On the job

Teacher childcare on a children’s day care

"Celebrating peoples' true nature", that's what we do at Hestia. Not only do we empower children to fully express themselves, we also celebrate our employees and all the diverse talents that they have. Our culture is inclusive and we support conscious growth of our people.

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. 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.
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 loved the idea that Hestia is a second home for kids and teachers. I remembered when I first saw Hestia’s website I was really excited to apply. When I had my trial day and returned home I was so happy with my experience. I found a very nice working environment and a lot of inspiring people who are willing to help you and teach you a lot of things. I really enjoy the vibes between the colleagues and all those nice things we do with kids. For example, baking and cooking, museum visits etc. Hestia is indeed a great place to grow. Since I start working here for the company I feel inspired and motivated to become a better version of myself. I really love and appreciate that."
