This article discusses some ideas regarding the second-language education at the kindergarten for migrant workers children. The ideas are based on opinions about the nature of the second-language-learning process and on the results of a small experiment on the usage of Dutch by foreign children. It is argued that there are a lot of similarities between the first- and the second-language-learning processes. In the first-language-learning process the parents present the child with a kind of hidden curriculum which facilitates the acquisi-tion of the syntax, semantics and pragmatics of a language. The basic characteristics of this hidden curriculum can also be used for a second-language curriculum for foreign children in the kindergarten.
