Winford Bilingual Primary School is a global school in the Amsterdam community focused on the highest quality bilingual primary education.
Our goal is to prepare your child for life beyond the primary classroom. During their time at our school, they follow the Dutch, UK, and IPC curriculum. This approach provides children with a very solid emotional, intellectual, and cultural basis for secondary schooling.
True bilingualism allows students to pursue their secondary education in the Dutch or International environments successfully. Winford Bilingual's whole-child approach integrates Montessori ideals of independence, curiosity, love of learning, and sense of community.
What makes us special?
Two teachers per classroom
Each classroom has a fully qualified English and Dutch speaking teacher. Each teacher speaks their native language to our students, and all subjects are taught in both languages.
With an average of 18 children per classroom, we are able to focus on each individual child. Our teachers meticulously craft each and every lesson to ensure the progress and development of their students.
Comprehensive Bilingual Curriculum
All subjects are taught in Dutch and English throughout the school day. Children complete the Dutch, UK, and IPC curriculum and become fluent in both languages.
Multi Age Classrooms
Children love to learn from other children and this provides great mentoring opportunities for students. This also allows us to teach to ability, so that we can focus on the best education for each child.
In addition to the four week summer break and two week winter break, parents can schedule 40 flexible days of vacation throughout the school year.
Dutch and International Students
Our school community reflects the multicultural population of Amsterdam. It provides a warm and supportive environment throughout primary schooling.
Being kind and consistent is key to our program. We model firmness by respecting ourselves and the needs of the situation, and kindness by respecting the needs of the child.
Winford Bilingual is located at Jan Luijkenstraat 29, just one block from Museumplein. We are incredibly lucky to be in the cultural epicentre of our wonderful city.
