Waiting parents

My house is easily accessible by car or public transport. The bus stop is only one minute away from the house; just ask me for details of the bus line and where to get off. There’s always plenty of space to park your car in front of the house.

While you wait for your child’s lesson, you don’t have to sit in your car outside. Here are some options:

1) Come inside and take advantage of a warm, dry waiting room with a desk, comfortable chair and free wireless internet! Just bring your laptop, smartphone, a novel or whatever will help you make the most of the time.

2) If the weather permits, sit in our garden, read a book, have a quick snooze, get up to date with your email…

3) Go a country walk. 100 metres down my road and you are into rural Flanders: cows, horses, buzzards, more cows, fresh air … I will happily give you a map of a 30, 45 or 60 minute walk in the neighbourhood.

4) Do some shopping. Two minutes away by car are Brantano, Blokker and E5 Mode, while a bit further is a Carrefour supermarket and InterSport.

Got younger children with you?

One minute walk away is Café Het Moment where you can buy a locally made ice-cream (open every day except Tuesdays from 14:00).

Or you might like to drop in to the Broekveld Café and Indoor Play Area, which is just a few minutes away (cost: 4 EUR). It’s open from Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. It’s closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
