Festive start on the construction of the Montfoort Children’s Centre

Thursday 17 November is the time. The municipality of Montfoort and the parties involved will then celebrate the start of the construction of the new Montfoort Child Centre. All future users are invited; three primary schools, childcare and all children. This means that no fewer than 600 Montfoort children are expected for a festive moment on the still vacant construction site. With musical accompaniment, the procession moves from the current building to the new location for the first time on Thursday morning.

Children’s Center Montfoort
The three primary schools Graaf Jan, De Howiblo and De Hobbitstee in Montfoort and the after-school KMN Kind & CO will be housed in new homes. Together they will form a children’s centre. A place where any organization can spread its identity and where special activities are offered and where collaboration is achieved through the shared use of space.

The new building
Children’s center Montfoort becomes a beating heart where play and learning meet. A friendly environment, with flexibility in current use and for the future. Durable and easy to maintain, a playful building where children can grow and flourish. The new location is the so-called ‘former Hofland School’, on the Parklaan in Montfoort, near the tennis club and the hockey fields.

Start construction
Construction is scheduled to start in November 2022. On Wednesday 2 November, the site was officially handed over to Pellikaan Bouwbedrijf. The construction company is the first to start piling work, which will lay the foundation for the new children’s centre. The first stake will soon be driven into the ground. In total, no fewer than 127 poles are taken down.

Party on Thursday 17 November
Together with all users and stakeholders, Montfoort municipality celebrates the start of construction on Thursday 17 November. On that day, all users, i.e. the three schools and childcare, will visit the construction site. At the start of the day, they leave from their current location, the school complex on Van Damstraat in Montfoort, to the construction site. They are musically accompanied by the ZWUP Fun Chapel. Together, the symbolic start signal for the construction of the Child Center Montfoort on the construction site is given.

see through
In the coming months, the outlines of the new Montfoort Child Center will become more and more visible. The aim and expectation is that the three schools and the
childcare may move in early 2024.
