Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

LSE is a special education school.
LSE offers individualised education to children aged 3-13 who are unable to cope in mainstream international education. There are currently two classes: the younger class is for children aged 5 to 8 years old and the older class is for children aged 8 to 13 years old. Each class has a maximum of 8 children in it and is staffed by a teacher and a teaching assistant.
In addition to the school classes, there is an inclusive preschool class called Three Little Ships which offers an early intervention programme for children aged 2.5 to 5 years old.

Learning support offered

The staff of the Lighthouse school all have extensive experience of working with children with complex learning challenges and most also have specialist qualifications. In addition to the classroom staff, there are also support staff – a secretary and concierge – and a group of volunteers who support the children at lunchtime.

Many of the children require additional therapies from other experts and currently speech and language therapy, physiotherapy, sensory integration therapy and occupational therapy are given to students during the school day by English-speaking internationally qualified therapists.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

The Lighthouse Special Education school is the only international special school in The Netherlands. LSE offers individualised education to children aged 3-13 who are unable to cope in international mainstream education. The school provides a safe and structured learning environment for children with complex challenges.

Teaching approach of the school

Students at the Lighthouse School follow an individualised curriculum that provides a variety of learning opportunities specially planned for that student. A strong emphasis is placed on learning communication and social skills. Many of the students also need to learn how to cope in a school environment and how to learn in a school setting, including maintaining attention, listening to instructions in a group, completing tasks, working independently, coping with change. The teacher gives individual instructions or instructions in small groups and she/he also works with the whole group during circle time, in social studies and arts.
