In Hilversum we have one English spoken playgroup: the International Playgroup. This playgroup is located on the premises of the International Primary School (Violenschool) which is located in central Hilversum. Most of our children are from another country and reside in the Netherlands only on a temporary basis.
At the International Playgroup encourage the children to develop their English language skills. Some children who start at the International Playgroup have to learn the English language as a second or third language while others learn the English language as their mother tongue. We also encourage the children to be as independent as possible: we offer them a daily routine and create a safe, fun, creative and stimulating environment. The children can play and learn together, but are also able to explore on their own.
