KC Noord could be described as a new building typology. The programme contains 2 primary schools (a catholic and a non-denominative), a day care for physically challenged children and three crèches. These form the Children’s Cluster Complex, together with a community centre, a professional sports hall, a small theatre and a restaurant. It is the largest school complex in Leidsche Rijn, the largest suburb development area of the Netherlands. Therefore, KC Noord is an important community centre for its residents.
