The KunstKasteel strictly adheres to government guidelines regarding the corona crisis.
Hester has consulted the RIVM and has been informed that the KunstKasteel can operate under the following conditions:
1. Only for children up to 12 years old.
2. Upon arrival and departure, children clean their hands with disinfectant gel.
3. Adults do not enter the KunstKasteel and keep a distance of 1.5 meters from each other.
4. The gate to Het KunstKasteel is open before 4 am, so that children and their supervisors can walk straight through.
5. If Hester catches a cold, she will close Het KunstKasteel and inform the parents via WhatsApp.
Furthermore, the RIVM stated that the same guidelines apply to Het KunstKasteel as to childcare or primary school:
1. Children are therefore allowed to go to Het KunstKasteel if they only have a cold (such as runny nose, cold in the nose, sneezing and sore throat).
2. Children must stay at home if:
- The child is a housemate of someone who has corona.
- The child has complaints that are consistent with corona and is a contact of someone who has corona.
If the RIVM guidelines were to change, Het KunstKasteel will immediately follow them.
Until further notice, Het KunstKasteel does not organize any activities for adults.
Hester Scheltens finds it important that children use their imagination and develop their creativity in a safe learning environment in Het KunstKasteel.
She stimulates children to use their imagination. To make "out of the box" choices.
That is why in Het KunstKasteel you will find - in addition to commonly used craft materials - also material that is not primarily intended for tinkering. Think of bicycle inner tubes, beer caps ("Did you drink all that beer yourself?"), Corks, straws, pieces of leather, marbles, barbies, cat litter, flour and gravel. And even the hardened drops from the glue gun are still used to build walls.
