Who are newcomers?

Newcomers are, for us, children who come new to the Netherlands. This can be the first time that they come to the Netherlands but this is not necessary. These children haven't been longer than a year in the Netherlands. The children have in common that they don't speak/ understand/ write /read enough dutch to participate in a regular primary school.

Children come for different reasons to the Netherlands. Sometimes they ask asylum, in other cases parents are going to work in the Netherlands, or a parent has a relationship with a dutch person.

We accept only children between the age of 6 -12 years.
