What is a domain?
An open plan concept has many advantages. It is a vision of learning that is supported by the spaces in the Binck. Education and care take place in these open and large spaces. Children can develop, learn and relax here. Each floor is one domain, the furniture can be used flexibly and offers many opportunities to work (together) and relax.
Will my child be in a group or class?
Your child will be placed in a group with a mentor. This mentor is the first point of contact for you and your child. The meetings take place in this group. Your child will stay during the day in the domain and is supported by several colleagues and a larger group of children.
How is structure brought into my child's day?
Our days have a clear rhythm. This is how we start and close the education day with a meeting in the regular group. In addition, we make clear agreements about the desired behavior in and use of the domains with each other. The portfolio also includes a daily schedule specifically for your child.
What is the parental contribution?
We have chosen not to ask for a voluntary parental contribution at this time. All students participate in our school activities. We do not exclude students, because their parents are unable or unwilling to pay the voluntary parental contribution.
