Mission

Bureau Kwaliteit Kinderopvang (BKK) is a non-profit organization in the Netherlands to improve the quality of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC).
It is founded and governed by the national associations of employers, employees and parents in the field of ECEC. In the period of 2013-2017, BKK is working on the program Quality Impulse, which is commissioned and subsidized by the Dutch government. This program is aligned with the policy agenda from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment in consultation with different stakeholders.
With the Quality Impulse, BKK will provide and maintain an innovative and effective improvement of ECEC and preservation of continuous professional development. The program should contribute to a healthy and balanced development of all children who attend ECEC in the Netherlands, aimed at center-based childcare as well as home-based childcare.
