We offer bilingual childcare at a number of our locations. In the bilingual groups for children aged 0 to 4 years, the Nannies speak both Dutch and English with the children. We offer flexible childcare tot children aged 0 to 4 years at three of our locations. At these locations, you can bring your child in on different days per week or per month. Which is an ideal option for you if you work irregular shifts or have an alternating schedule.
We offer bilingual childcare for international families and expats. In the bilingual groups, we speak both Dutch and English with the children and we pay attention to different cultures. Dutch is spoken at least 50% of the time and English at least 30% of the time. In addition, all communication with parents and guardians, such as meetings regarding the child’s development and parent evenings, can also take place in Dutch or English. As can all written communication. Children between the ages of 0 and 4 years play together in our bilingual groups.
Bilingual childcare is offered at the following locations:
In the bilingual group, one Nanny always speaks Dutch and the other Nanny always speaks English. This ensures that the children know who they will receive a response from in which language. This adds to their sense of emotional security. The two languages are thus offered separately; this is called the ‘One Person, One Language’ principle. Our Nannies in the bilingual groups speak English and Dutch at a specific, officially recognised level. The activities take place in both languages, depending on which Nanny is leading them. For example, we sing songs in both languages and we have an equal division of English and Dutch books.

You choose a fixed, minimum number of hours, which you can then plan in yourself over a month and specify one month in advance when your child will be at CompaNanny.
