Basisschool de Springplank

What we stand for…

The Springplank stands for learning from and with each other, both for children and teachers. The teachers offer space and work methods that promote cooperation between children.
We want to create an optimal “school environment”. We see the parent as the most important partner. We expect an open and respectful attitude from everyone. The team has an active attitude towards educational developments and feels responsible for professionalization to guarantee the current quality.
