The pre-IBDP program focuses on the philosophy of international education, in particular on IBMYP. The main objective is that students feel secure and confident in their command of the Dutch language, and that they develop their imagination by reading and analysing literary texts.
This program also fits students who do not visit an IB-school.

IBID is available for feedback and support beyond our tutoring programs. This may be for students as well as for teachers and educational institutions who need help with IB Dutch related questions.
