O3 featured in latest Inspiration Handbook Schooldomein
"O3 is a hub in and for the neighbourhood, where children and locals of all ages can meet, develop and discover the world"
Child Centre O3 is one of the selected projects for Schooldomein's Inspiration Handbook 'Child Centres in their context', released on 20 April 2023. The project illustrates our vision that an elementary school can be more than just a place where children learn, but also fulfil an important social role.
In addition to the Jan van Nassauschool, a daycare, a playgroup and an after-school centre, O3 is also home to welfare organisations such as the CJG (Child Health Care Centre), a GP post, sports clubs and various neighbourhood organisations. Children come here to learn and play, the elderly get together to cook and eat, parents can attend courses, local residents drop in with questions or just for a chat. This way, we have created a school building for the entire community, a 'living room' for the Rivierenbuurt area of The Hague. This formerly deprived neighbourhood has thus been given an important boost - coinciding with the ambitions of the Municipality of The Hague and housing corporation Haag Wonen for the area.
