In our childcare centres, we are working towards a future in which every child is able to reach their full potential. A better tomorrow, perfectly organised.
Tineke Onink has been manager/director of the organisation since 2006. Tineke is also chair of the management team, which consists of four members:
Parents/guardians play an important role within Morgen. This goes further than the participation defined by the Dutch Childcare Act (Wet Kinderopvang). The parents council (ouderraad) and parent committees (oudercommissies) play an active role, contribute to important decision-making and act as a valuable sounding board. The parents council regularly meets with the manager/director and the parent committees meet the location manager or the brand manager.
The works council (ondernemingsraad) represents all our staff and is a discussion partner for the manager/director in matters of business policy and personnel issues. The works council is consulted at an early stage if changes are proposed. We discuss not only what is demanded by law, but also what we consider important for each other. We have a high level of mutual trust and commitment.
The Supervisory Board is involved in strategic policy and Morgen’s position in society. They also ensure that our stated objectives are achieved. Read more in the management report (bestuursverslag, in Dutch).
Morgen works in accordance with the VTOI-VNTK Inspection Code (internal childcare and educational sector inspection body or Code Goed Toezicht, in Dutch). We also adhere to the Childcare Governance Code (governance code kinderopvang) defining principles for good conduct, management and inspection. This is how we implement principled, socially responsible and efficient supervision and management.
Municipalities are responsible for inspection of childcare centres. The GGD (the Municipal Health Service) inspects our childcare centres on behalf of the municipality, checking that we meet national quality standards. All inspection reports are publicly available on the National Childcare Register (Landelijk Register Kinderopvang).
“We have made a conscious decision to join the social childcare trade organisation, BMK. This means our profits are channelled back into the childcare centre and childcare remains available in areas where it may not be profitable, but this is exactly where the children need it the most.”Tineke Onink, manager/director
Morgen collaborates with schools, school boards, municipalities and Civil Society Organisations. We play an active role as an expert partner in child-related networks:
