When you think of the Netherlands, the first thing that might come to your mind is probably Amsterdam, famous for its Rembrandts, the red light district, and its smoky coffee shops. The older generation might think of windmills, tulips, and wooden shoes.
Besides our rich culture, we also have primary education in the Netherlands. At the age of 4 our children start their education at a primary school. Did you know that a very important development in the Netherlands is the realization of the Brede School (community schools), the so-called ”child centers”?
