Would you like your child aged 6-9 to start reading Dutch books?
Ability is key to selecting the right course. It does not matter how old your child is.
The Level 3 course is for children who speak a fair amount of Dutch and who are ready to start reading Dutch in order to increase their literacy. At the end of 12 hours the children should be able to read an AVI 2/3 book.
In 60 minute lessons:
- The children get familiar with the Dutch language with the help of colourful illustrations that they have to describe.
- The children will play with a letter box and are trained how to connect sounds with letters.
- The children will make jig saws together and while doing so they are challenged to speak about it.
- A variety of kwartet games will be played and by asking and answering questions the children will improve their language skills.
- The children will read stories out loud and they are pushed to talk about what they have been reading.
- They children are being challenged to express themselves and to summarize stories that they have heard.
The curriculum has been developed with input from an experienced elementary school teacher who has worked with young children for many years. After the first 3 lessons, you will still have the option to opt-out. So why not give it a try?
Late enrollments are also accepted. The maximum group size will be 8 children.
Children can be dropped off and picked up from the school. However, it is also possible for the parent(s)/caregiver(s) to wait in a separate room at Kickstart, while children enjoy the Kickstart Dutch Kids Club.
