HI there, I am a mother of a 15 month old who's papa is Dutch. His dad speaks dutch to him and I am hoping to find someplace to compliment that. Preschool in Dutch? Any ideas? Thanks! aimee

Hi, Fellow Dutchman (well, really woman) here! There are quite a few Dutch speaking families in the Bay Area and we've met several of them. I made a point to befriend some other families with children of our kids' ages and we do occasional play dates. Another thing that worked really well with the language is Dutch DVDs. You can purchase a DVD player that will play European DVDs (look on the internet) and either order on line or via Dutch family get age appropriate DVDs sent your way. Our kids don't watch a lot of TV, but they have learned a lot of from watching Dutch shows. JJ
