ESP Haarlem: more than a playgroup

Our Story

What We Do

ESP Haarlem is a friendly, international group of families living in and around Haarlem. 

The group has been running for over 20 years; supporting many generations of families in and around Haarlem.


We run an English-speaking playgroup every Monday morning from 9am at Speeltuin Klarenhof in the Leidsebuurt. Come along and say hello, have a coffee and play!

Alongside the weekly playgroup, ESP organises social events for the whole family, including social drinks, meet-ups and hobby groups, plus seasonal celebrations for Easter, a Summer fete, Halloween, Sinterklaas and Christmas. 


(During recent years these have of course taken a different form, in order to keep everyone safe. Follow us on Instagram, turn on post notifications on our members' Facebook group for the latest updates in 2022.)

ESP is a non-profit organisation and the annual membership fee is used for renting premises and organising events for our members. If you would like to get involved, please contact us!
