Basic Dutch for Au Pairs Course
We don't have any courses available at the moment. Please contact us for more information.
Please refer to our covid regulations page for up to date information.

From September we will offer this course as a face to face course at our Kickstart School location in The Hague due to demand from our students. If you would rather do a remote course, we recommend considering joining one of our remote Starterpack courses.

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.

Are you an au pair or do you have an au pair who needs to speak some basic Dutch? This Dutch course for beginners has been specifically developed to help au pairs to quickly learn essential Dutch phrases to facilitate communication with children, whilst making new friends. We take a communicative approach to teaching so you or your au pair will be speaking Dutch from their first lesson. Please be aware that in the face to face courses there is no option of joining remotely. If you have to miss the class due to sickness or other reasons, you can catch up in self-study or we can offer you a catch up lesson at a reduced price.
