The Mgr. Bekkersschool is one of a few schools in Delft that offers a special language class in the school for newcomers in The Netherlands. We are aware of the impact of moving country, leaving home and having to learn an unfamiliar language. To make the experience less stressful for your child, we offer a warm and welcoming environment where your child can acclimatise and learn the Dutch language at a pace that suits his or her development.
If you are new to The Netherlands, your child of 6 years old or older will therefore start in this language class. In this class he or she will learn the Dutch language. After seven months, we assess whether your child is ready to be placed in their regular year group. Sometimes a child will need a little longer before he or she is ready to move into our mainstream groups. This will be discussed with you as needed. All teaching staff at our school are capable of catering for your child's educational needs.
Children in the age of 4 and 5 will start in the regular Group 1 and 2 classes. Learning is more play-based at this age and language acquisition is at the heart of the curriculum. Additional assistance is available at this age as well.
Should you be interested in a place for your child in this class, please contact the Head of School, Ms. Marianne Mink. She may be contacted by telephone on +31 15 2561318 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
