All members of the True Colors childcare team are bilingual in Dutch and English. They are specifically trained and qualified to work with young children. In addition, we also have pedagogical experts on our staff. They provide extra support where necessary.

Trained in first aid

All members of our childcare team are trained in first-aid for children and emergency assistance (‘BHV’). We are constantly updating their training and provide numerous other specialist programmes for our staff.

Childcare teachers

Each group has its own permanent team of bilingual teachers. Their focus is on your child’s wellbeing and preparing them for primary school. Whether your child will be going to a Dutch primary school at 4 years, or will be enrolled for the international school from 3 years, our teachers know what they need. At least once a year they will discuss your child’s development with you and offer important insights into your child’s development.

You can request anytime an extra meeting with them by contacting one of the teachers of your child’s group.

Meet team True Colors Rijswijk


Eva Cizmarova

I was born in Slovakia and moved to in the Netherlands in 2000. I have been working in childcare since 2004, and still enjoy it a lot! Especially the creative activities and reading books with the children. And I love giving the babies all the care and attention they need.


Krisna van 't Hof

I love working with children. Their smile makes my day!


Mary Daudey

I’m married and have two children and 2 grandchildren. My hobbies are Diamond Painting and doing puzzles. I’ve been a housekeeper for True Colors Rijswijk since 2003. Working together with my colleagues and the enthusiasm of the children are what I love most about my job.


Miena Oemraw

I’m a flexible, social and energetic member of our childcare team. The children are my first priority. I take time to play with them and during activities I try to teach them things associated with the theme we’re working on.


Chantal Kort

I love working with children and watching them grow and develop from a baby into a toddler.


Karima Ballafkih

My name is Karima Ballafkih. I’m taking care of the warm meals at True Colors for more than 11 years now. Cooking is one of my favourite. And to see the happy faces from the childeren is so inspired.


Merel Huurman

When I was young, I lived in America, Australia and England for a few years. Now, I live in Delft with my husband, son and daughter. Diving, snorkelling, traveling and crafts are a few of my hobbies. When we have time, we like to go to Zeeland to dive in the Oosterschelde







Meet team True Colors Delft


Ana Moreno

¡Hola a todos! I’m a Spanish native speaker, raised in Málaga. My international background sparked my interest in living in other countries and learning their languages, cultures and traditions. I’m passionate about education, discovering new things and working with children. You’ll often see me at their level, playing, talking or singing to them!


Arianna de Simone

I love to share my creativity with the children and I’m always looking for challenging and interesting activities. For me, the interaction with the children is really important, both through cuddling, playing games and also by talking about their personal stories. I love crafts, music, nature and travelling.


Debbie Braber

Working at True Colors feels like being part of a family to me. This is the feeling I want to give to the children in our group when they leave.


Maaike Knot

Originally from Delft I am in love with the international aspect of this city! At home I speak both English and Dutch. That's why working at True Colors is a perfect job for me! I really enjoy to work with all these different cultures and languages. I try to learn something from everyone. At work I very much enjoy to make music with the children, or to make a little trip to explore nature.


Magdalena Luczak

I have enjoyed working with children in day care for over 10 years in the UK, Poland and the Netherlands. I love the opportunity to learn about different cultures from around the world. It’s a privilege to be a part of such a caring and innovative childcare centre like True Colors, where I can continue with my passion for teaching young children.


Mariam Sury

Born and educated in the Netherlands, I spent 11 years working in different schools and daycare centres in the UK. Being part of the True Colours team has so far been a great experience. It’s amazing to see how children speak two or even more languages at such a young age. I really love working with children from different backgrounds and cultures.


Nienke van Rooyen

I love the different nationalities at True Colors: comforting a child who doesn’t understand me. Singing, bringing books alive, hide-and-seek and giving children space to explore. Connecting with a child is priceless! I enjoy making plans with the children and helping them become independent and confident. And I’m passionate about our garden.


Regina Stork

I’ve been working at SRK since 2003. In 2007, I was appointed manager of the international childcare centres, now known as True Colors. What I love about my work is that, in between all the meetings, talking, thinking, schedules, policies etc, I can still get enormously distracted by all these wonderful children. I love chatting to them and giving them a big hug when I can.


Sanne Jans

I’ve been working with children from all different backgrounds since 2003. I started working for True Colors after spending 1 ½ years working in the UK. I love being surrounded by nature, so I enjoy taking the children on adventures outside, to explore everything around us!


Shelley Rijnenberg

I work on all the groups and get the chance to get to know the children and have a good overview of the pedagogic atmosphere on the group. I love to see how the children continue to grow and develop in their own unique way thanks to a lot of love and attention from us. As a pedagogical coach I am partly responsible for the pedagogical atmosphere at True Colors Delft. Together with the teachers I plan the themes and activities, providing a continuous line to school.


Tasha Olszyk

I studied developmental psychology in the United States, where I began working as a therapist for children with special needs, particularly Autism and learning disorders. During summers, I like to volunteer my time teaching English to children as a second language. I truly appreciate working here at True Colors, for its international diversity and how much we can learn from eachother's cultural backgrounds.


Tanja Lazic

Working in an international environment brings me joy. I love to learn about different cultures and help children and teachers from all around the world to feel at home. I am passionate about teaching children, encouraging them to do things in their own way, discovering their talents and observing their developments. Everyday I enjoy sharing my love, creativity and imagination with children.


Fabiana Schleiss

I have been working in an international environment for a few years now and what a pleasure it is for me to meet all these children and their parents, from all around the world. I truly love my job and working at True Colors. I feel so happy that I can help children learn and explore the world around them. My goal is to inspire them as much as they inspire me everyday. This is my passion and I can’t imagine myself doing anything else.




Marie Kamara

I like working with children because every day is different. They are spontaneous, impulsive and enthusiastic. To contribute to their development is my passion.


Mechteld Griethuijsen

I love to watch children grow and help them to develop themselves to become the amazing people that they are.
