As of September our private courses will be taught face to face at our Kickstart School location in The Hague.
We also have a more lenient opt-out policy and you will get the remainder of the course fees reimbursed if you get ill with Covid.
In order to keep everybody safe, do not come to our school if you have any symptoms or have had a chance of exposure to Covid.
Have you just moved to the Netherlands and are your children attending a Dutch school? Does your child struggle with Dutch? Is grammar a little scary for them? Or does your child just want to get stronger in Dutch speaking, listening, reading, grammar and writing? Kickstart School offers fun and meaningful lessons for children age 4 to 14 who wish to learn Dutch and communicate with confidence. This course involves specially-designed materials and activities, including songs, story-telling, and a variety of educational games. This learning approach creates an enjoyable, positive, and safe learning environment and provides a different experience to regular school.
We have experience with expatriate children who need to enter the Dutch school system and integrate in Dutch life. We help them build both their confidence and language skills.
If your children are not getting enough help at school, we can support them with focused, positive attention on exactly the skills they need to succeed. Our private/small group, 1:1 lessons help children achieve both short and long term academic goals.
Topics covered in the course include:
Languages are forever. Whatever your child may end up doing, the ability to speak another language will always be helpful.
To talk more about your child’s Dutch ability and challenges please contact us via email, phone or by filling out the registration/contact form.
