There will be an open house on March 15th at the Winford Bilingual School in Haarlem.

At Winford, the goal is to prepare children for life beyond the primary classroom.

During their time at Winford, children follow the Dutch, UK, and IPC curricula. This approach provides children with a solid emotional, intellectual, and cultural basis for secondary schooling. 

True bilingualism allows students to pursue their secondary education in Dutch or International environments successfully. Winford Bilingual’s whole-child approach integrates Montessori ideals of independence, curiosity, love of learning, and a sense of community.
