WIJS is the Dutch word for ‘wise’
Who is WIJS for?
WIJS is for children in Groups 3, 4, 5 of 6 who would benefit from extra help with the Dutch language.
They will be supported by senior citizens in Leidschenveen-Ypenburg who speak the Dutch language well at (near) native level.
How does it work?
You are invited to attend a group on Wednesday afternoons (April to June) for an hour. The volunteers from the local area are there to help you with your reading, homework or playing games.
For children in Groups 3 and 4, WIJS is from 14:30-15:30.
For children in Groups 5 and 6, WIJS is from 15:45-16:45.
On Wednesday 30th March, there is an information afternoon for parents and children.
What does it cost?
The parents pay €10 for 10 sessions – €1 per time. You buy a card for 10 sessions.
What will it achieve?
You will learn to speak better Dutch. You can also have some help with your homework such as reading, spelling and maths.
Where is it?
WIJS takes place at Inclusion4all’s centre, Vuursteen 8 in Ypenburg (in the shopping centre).
WIJS is a joint cooperation between HECHT and Inclusion4all.
It is sponsored by the local government Gemeente Den Haag.
Your school can sign you up. Complete the registration form that is available at the school. We will then get in touch with you.
