About us


Child-care should be available to every child, that’s my vision. Children who are a hand full, children who are quiet, children with a disability, children who are bilingual (or trilingual), children with an allergy and all children I didn’t mention before. My name is Brenda and I am the director/owner of Carpe Diem. I am married and together we have two children, a son who is 24years old and a daughter who is 19 years old. My son has a disability and when he was little I searched for child-care for him, but I couldn’t find it. That’s the reason I wanted to start my own child-care center, one where all children are welcome. Unfortunately I didn’t have experience in professional child-care and I didn’t have the necessary diploma’s. I did have a friend who worked in child-care and I asked her for advice. April first 2000 I was ready and I opened KinderOntwikkelingsCentrum Carpe Diem (Child Development Center), with a couple of child-care teachers who had the right credentials. This was 19 years ago and in the mean time I got my credentials (SPW3, PW4, Praktijkopleider, Kinder-EHBO, BHV) and I have taken many courses. To further extend my knowledge I have studied (for three years) at the PABO to learn more about teaching sciences, giving me the chance to integrate my teaching knowledge into our many preschool activities in the best possible way!

Together with Stephany, our supervisor, I make sure we maintain a high standard of quality, that is very important to me. Stephany has worked with children for eleven years.

We work together with Anouk, Myrte, Anna, Israe and Nathalie and trainees from several universities.
