Children who visit the Globe have only been in the Netherlands for a short time. The country, the language, the culture, in fact the entire Dutch society, everything is unknown. It is our job to make children feel safe and at home. We do this by offering a lot of structure and a listening ear. When the children are used to, we say landed, learning the Dutch language can really start. That moment is different for every child. We adapt our actions accordingly.
The Globe opened its doors on November 18, 2015 for children from the former AZC Crailo. Children from Bussum and Naarden soon followed who were new to the Netherlands and had to learn the language first. In 2020 there was insufficient intake and the Globe had to close its doors. A restart was made with the Globe in March 2022. Children from Ukraine come to the Globe to receive education.
