Why Dutch lessons?
Choosing for Dutch education abroad primarily provides a good connection to the Dutch/Flemish school system in case of a possible return. The Dutch education will help your children to maintain their cultural identity as well. This way they stay connected with their ‘roots’ communicate with their Dutch friends and family back home.

There are two kinds of language education that we provide:
– Native Language education: where we closely follow the Dutch curriculum
