Project MIND

The MIND project is a study into bilingual childcare in the Netherlands. Ten childcare organizations offer childcare in both Dutch and English to children aged between zero to four years from 2018 until 2021. A team of researchers at the University of Amsterdam investigated how children, who attend such bilingual centers, develop their language proficiency. The development of both the Dutch and English language skills was examined for a total of 751 children. Their language skills were measured one to four times with an intermission of eight to nine months. In addition, policy documents were consulted, 70 teachers and 410 parents filled out surveys and eight teachers were interviewed. At three locations, teacher-child interactions were investigated by means of video recordings.
