Regular program


Groups

The Dutch School of SoCal is a Dutch Language and Culture school. Our classes are on Saturday mornings.

The ages of the students range from 2 years to 18 years (plus adults). The students are divided over the following classes:

- Peuters - Toddlers 2 year olds (alleen op de North Hollywood school) en 3 year olds.
- Kleutergroep/ groep 1-2 - 4 to 6 year olds 
- Groep 3 divided in 3a and 3b (1st to 2nd grade) 
- G
roep 4 t/m 8 (3rd to 7th grade)
- Voortgezet
 onderwijs (from about 7th/8th grade)
- Dutch as a second language
- Dutch for adults 

Group division

Students are usually placed in the group where they belong in the Dutch/Flemish system. Students with different background can be placed in different groups. We select by knowledge of the language first and then by age.

Groups usually are not bigger than 10 students (except for toddlers). Depending on the group, we either split the group or have an assistant in the class. 

Teaching methods

All groups use professional, modern methods for Dutch-language education. Dutch and Flemish culture are also part of the program.

Quality of our classes

We use various methods to ensure that the quality of our student care remains anchored in daily practice and remains open to improvement. 

Our students

The students are from mixed American-Dutch families who are permanently established here and are interested in following a study in the Netherlands or Belgium. In addition, children from expats participate in our program.
