Committed to enriching and supporting the lives of families with small children
Robbeburg began in 1974 when a few parents in Amstelveen, just outside Amsterdam, were looking for a playgroup for their children. They thought it was important that young children learnt to play together, in a safe, friendly environment. Unfortunately this sort of playgroup could not be found in the Amsterdam area. In response to notices put up in some apartment blocks, a group of four adults and seven children was formed on Monday 4th November 1974.
There was obviously a need for such a playgroup and within a few weeks the number of children had increased to 14. The playgroup continued to grow & strengthen, adding more sessions to accommodate the demand from parents.
After more than 30 years in Amstelveen, Robbeburg Playgroup relocated to its current home at Jekerstraat 84, Amsterdam in June 2006.
Robbeburg currently serves an international community and welcomes families of any nationality, sessions are offered in English.
