Bouwlust is a committed boarding house for expat children but in exceptional cases also for children with a different background. Most of the children live with us, because their parents live and work abroad in places that have no compatible education for them, are dangerous or lack many basic commodities, in other cases the parents move to often for the children to build a good basis. We are often seen as a good jumping board towards an independent university life in the Netherlands. Children can experience life in the Netherlands in their senior years in environment that provides guidance and a haven to fall back on.
We take good care of ‘our’ children. We provide a home where attention is paid to personal development, where there is space for the acquisition of knowledge, the honing of skills and the development of the creative and social aspects of all the individual characters.
Each child has their own room. Every day we cook tasty, healthy meals for ‘our’ children and take care of many practical issues such as:
- Parents’ evenings
- Going to the general practitioner
- Visiting the dentist
- Helping with homework
- Providing encouragement or a good conversation, a simple pick-me-up
The children live in a safe, stable environment where they can work towards their futures. Visit the website »
