Gentse Spruiten vzw

We have been offering casual meetings and playdates for families in Ghent for 7 years. In 2019, we opened our 1st Neighbourhood location in the Brugse Poort where we offer in a beautifully decorated room, playdates for families - 3 days a week (on Sunday, Monday and Thursday) . The diverse group of families who visit really appreciate the fact that we are also active on weekends, holidays and vacations.

Biggest Babytheek in Belgium

Two years ago we launched Babytheek Gent, as a new family-friendly and sustainable project in Ghent. In doing so, we joined the growing network of Babytheken, which in the meantime includes already 30 lending services for baby items spread across Flanders and Brussels - see

In no time at all, Babytheek Gent has exceeded all possible expectations. And we just keep on growing!

"We are really proud of Babytheek Ghent and everything we have been able to accomplish in just 2 years. Thanks to our fantastic volunteers and the many donations we receive from everywhere, we have already made many Ghent families quite happy. Both for underprivileged families and families with a focus on sustainability, the Babytheek is a very nice solution! " says Jovita Goldschmidt, founder of Gentse Spruiten.

In the meantime, Babytheek Gent's catalog includes over 2,600 items, suitable for use from pregnancy to toddlerhood. These items have already been used by 213 families, 166 of which are still active members. Gentse Spruiten hopes to open a 2nd branch in 2022 to be able to welcome even more families from Ghent.

Party on June 19

We definitely have reason enough to celebrate! You are welcome to join us on Sunday, June 19 from 2 pm to 5 pm in our cozy Neighbourhood location in the Kiekenstraat 4bis, 9000 Ghent.

We will treat you to bubbles, homemade cupcakes, live music, a photo booth, a secondhand market to benefit Gentse Spruiten, a big piñata and more activities for the whole family. Make sure you're there at 3pm, after short speeches we'll smash a big piñata together!

All this is made possible by an incredible team of volunteers who do everything to make Gentse Spruiten and Babytheek Gent an integral part of Ghent family life.
