statement of the HSV is: ‘Global citizenship, lifelong learning’.
Mission of TLS
The mission of TLS is to offer international expatriate children, both with and without
additional needs, an optimal inclusive learning environment where the children can develop
and learn together.
Three Little Ships provides a positive and secure learning environment for all children,
underpinned by structured teaching and successful communication. Within the learning
environment, we accept and respect all children the way they are, recognising each person
as unique. Opportunities for play, creativity and positive experiences are fundamental to the
preschool curriculum. Three Little Ships preschool believes strongly in the importance of trust, tolerance, acceptance, dialogue, individual attention, support, challenge and encouragement.
The Dutch law on pre-school education (Wet Kinderopvang) states: “Responsible preschool
education contributes to a good and healthy development of the child in a safe environment”.
The law specifies four development objectives which are based on research of Mrs. M.
1 Providing a feeling of emotional security
2 Stimulating personal competencies
3 Stimulating social competencies
4 Socialisation: offering (cultural) rules, norms and values
