De Bijenkorf primary school, welcome to our school
Our school is different. Not in terms of what the children learn, but how they learn.
De Bijenkorf is a ‘Jenaplan’ school. We see our classroom as a community where we talk, work, play and celebrate. We are all different and we value those differences because we can learn from each other. At our school, children can be themselves, because everyone is unique and has different basic capacities and talents that can be developed further.
We do this in multi-age groups that cover three school years. The children are the youngest in their multi-age group for one year, in the middle group for one year and the oldest for one year. The children learn to work together and be independent within this group. The three-year cycle ensures that the teacher gets to know the children well and can help them get the best out of themselves. Each multi-age group has its own room, an environment that is as homely as possible, which the children help to decorate and manage. This teaches them to be responsible for the space, their space.
The teachers, children and parents are a team at De Bijenkorf primary school. After all, parenting does not only take place at home and learning does not only take place at school. The high level of involvement of teachers and parents ensures a pleasant and safe environment where children can develop optimally.
Our motto is: Whatever you become later in life, you are already somebody: yourself!
