My Mum is coming to visit at half term, first time she has ever been to Holland. She used to watch and love a programme about an English detective or he was maybe Dutch, anyway we think the programme was called Van den or der Valk. Does anyone know if it was located in Amersterdam or The Hague? she'd like to see where they made the programme.
Hello, I am currently a student at the University of Leiden; I am doing a masters in Child and Family Studies. Prior to starting my course I completed a diploma course with Hornsby to become a dyslexia tutor. I have experience of working with children on an individual basis providing both homework and specific dyslexia support. A usual session is 1 hour long and takes place in the child's home on a weekly basis. If you are looking for someone to support your child or if you have any further questions, please get in touch.
Hi all we are in the process of finding out about the Dutch equivalent of preschool, called peuterspeelen (bad spelling probably). Children go there from 2 years and 3 months and 4 years. The amount you pay is based on your wage, but to be honest most people will be in the top amount (3,000 euros a month or more). It will cost us 32 euros per morning session (2 and a half hours). I am stunned, I think that is hugely expensive, especially as in England it is free from 3 years till 5 years, and that is 5 sessions a week if you want it and also if you want extra it is about £7.50 a session. How do they get away with it here?? we are now seriously considering whether a) we can afford it, as 1 morning a week isn't great for a child, they really need 2 so that they get into the swing of it, and b) do we want to spend 250 - 300 euros a month on this, that would pay for our flights home and god knows what else!! what are anyones thoughts on this??
Does anyone know about swimming lessons? I need to get them up to speed but having talked to some of the Mum's in the class it seems to take and age to get them up to a diploma level. There's one Mum who has been going for 3 years in Wassenaar and she's still waiting for a diploma. Is there a fast track way of getting them through this? Spi
