At AIS, we teach two hours of Dutch Language per week, in combination with Dutch culture lessons. Our cultural celebrations include Sint Maarten, Sinterklaas (minus Zwarte Piet), Christmas, Easter, and King’s Day.

What programs are in place for children who enter the school with no or little English proficiency?

All our teachers are language teachers. AIS has a concept-based phonics program to teach English skills, regardless of the child’s entry points. Our English Language Acquisition Specialist teaches additional English lessons during our Dutch sessions to all children who require this support. Parents are encouraged to speak their native language at home, hereby strengthening their child’s language skills development. Parents are advised not to mix languages and only speak their native language. Our initial classroom instructions will be translated into the language of any new student entering the AIS.
