New Head of Daycare


Meet Paulette van Roekel

Tanja Slootmans, our current Head of Daycare, has been working as Unit Manager at two locations since ISB opened in August. Tanja will now return to her single role as Head of Daycare at de Boie kindercentrum. We would like to wish her all the best and of course we’re really pleased to welcome Paulette van Roekel to the team.

I would like to introduce myself. I am the new Head of Daycare at the ISB. My name is Paulette van Roekel. I live in the city centre of Breda. I'm looking forward to starting my new job after the

Christmas break.

For two and a half years, I worked as a Unit Manager for Daycare in Roosendaal. Before that, I lived with my family in Malawi where I was a secondary school teacher at the Bishop Mackenzie International School in the capital city of Lilongwe. Malawi is a developing country and unfortunately the people are very poor. In my spare time I work for our foundation in Malawi. One of our goals is developing education in an area close to Lilongwe. I think it is a special challenge to work together with the team and contribute to the success of the International School Breda.
