Bilingual Day Care Groups Open at The Estate
Today, Zein welcomed families into the new Blueberries/Bosbesjes and Raspberries/Framboosjes groups as bilingual day care (English-Dutch) launches at The Estate - following in the footsteps of The Little Castle in Voorburg & The Willows in Leidschenveen.
The primary focus for teachers in the first few weeks is to ensure children settle into a positive environment where they feel comfortable in their new (language) surroundings. In the groups, Dutch and English are spoken consistently for balanced language distribution and exposure throughout the day.
As part of our Zein Training Academy, all staff undergo a detailed induction and training programme so they learn to understand the Zein approach. All of Zein's bilingual teachers enjoyed additional on the job training in the period before the groups opened this week.
Over the coming weeks, we look forward to seeing the children settle into their new bilingual routine and enjoy learning some new Dutch words! If you are interested in bilingual (English-Dutch) or fully English-speaking childcare for your child, view the bilingual day care for more information or book a visit to take a tour of your closest location!
