The Dutch Club is for all children between the ages of 7 and 12 with an international background who would like to practice the Dutch language in everyday situations. These children become familiar with the Dutch language in a playful manner, hereby increasing their self-confidence. Together with parents and child we will decide to work with a theme and/or to focus on specific aspects of the Dutch language (reading, speaking, writing, vocabulary and listening). Read more..
The Basisclub is for all elementary school children who could use some extra help with their schoolwork. In the Club, children can work on their self-confidence, work mentality, homework, and any gaps in their basic knowledge of any chosen subject. We use acknowledged learning methods and educational games. At the Basisclub we approach children in a positive and personal way, providing for an optimal learning environment for children.

I would definitely recommend the Dutch Summer Week to other children, especially for children who do not often speak Dutch at home. In a safe and comfortable environment, within a small group, the kids enjoy practicing their Dutch. The Summer Week provides for the perfect balance of learning and fun! My daughters would have loved to attend another Summer Week.
Attending a number of afternoons at the Basisclub has greatly helped my daughter. Her basic knowledge has increased and, even more importantly, so has her self-confidence. She feels more confident about her ability to learn in class.
It was really nice meeting you and participating in this summer camp, our daughter was very happy and still remembers it with pleasure. It was such a delightfull time! You did everything in a very professional manner and my child felt secure, stimulated and happy.
I would definitely recommend the Dutch Summer Week! Excellent quality that justifies the price.
As parents we felt very involved and well informed about our child’s development. Every two months we evaluate his learning process and focus points with the Basisclub, and if necessary we adjust his learning plan accordingly!
Our daughter Charlotte can’t wait to be August again! She truly loved the Dutch Summer week in Basisclub. Christine and Jessie are very professional. They make the kids to be very integrated within the group and the Dutch culture. Every day they send a mail with the pictures taken that day, at the end of the week they give the kids a diploma and marks to the parents. Charlotte improved her writing and oral Dutch and her knowledge about the Dutch culture. We absolutely recommend the Summer Week, all the activities are very well organized, including a boat tour and trips to a farm, Stedelijk museum. Designing her own lamp is just one of the cool things she did in class. She learned a lot and had a lot of fun. – Meri&Olivier
