Robbie Zein founded Zein International Childcare, together with husband Jan van der Meijden, based on a dream to provide a better way to support and develop the lives of internationally-mobile children.
Today, this dream has become reality as Zein has become the leading provider of international childcare services in the Netherlands – offering Day Care, Pre-School, After-School and Holiday Care. Working both independently and in partnership with key international schools, Zein has just opened its fifth location in The Hague, delivering a specially-designed programme that focusses on the uniqueness of growing up in an internationally-oriented environment.
Zein’s philosophy is based on the belief that children growing up amongst worlds have the unique potential to become the model citizens of tomorrow. Their pedagogic programme is based upon an integration of aspects of the Reggio Emilia approach, Montessori methods and a Themed Approach to learning – providing children with the skills to cope with their constantly-changing settings and environments.
