This means that children learn English or Dutch through playful activities. Every daily gesture is reinterpreted in the target language, so that what the child experiences is directly linked to what the child hears. Daily routines (snacks, games, bedtime, friends, school, etc.) are revisited by our animators, who take care to communicate as much as possible with the children in the target language.
Each week, our animators receive a booklet containing the week’s theme and the games, crafts, songs and other activities associated with it. The themes chosen reflect the highlights of the school year (Halloween, St. Nicholas, Christmas, Carnival, etc.)
Children also receive a notebook at the start of the year in which parents can keep track of the songs they have learned in class and the various workshops. To avoid loss and forgetfulness, this notebook remains at the school and will be given to the children twice during the year.
