Bilingual Primary School in Amsterdam

Winford Bilingual provides a fully immersive, dual-language primary education in the heart of Amsterdam.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality bilingual education that prepares your child for life beyond the primary classroom. Our unique curriculum combines the Dutch and UK curricula with the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and Montessori ideals. Children are immersed in both Dutch and English throughout the entire school day.

Each classroom has an English and Dutch speaking teacher. Each teacher speaks their native language throughout the school day. All subjects are taught in both languages ‚Äč‚Äčthroughout the school day. This helps children develop their communication and comprehension abilities in both Dutch and English.
