Dutch school Homework: What parents need to know 🇳🇱

Are you moving to the Netherlands and curious about the homework culture in Dutch primary schools?

This is what you need to know:

🎒 In grades 3 through 8, most primary schools assign kids a ‘boekbespreking’ (book presentation) and a ‘spreekbeurt’ (presentation on a subject of your kid’s choice).

🎒 At most Dutch primary schools, kids will have regular homework starting from 6th grade (age 9). This homework won’t be daily, but once or twice a week.

Dutch primary school homework is often something your child can do without your help.

However, should your child require help, and language barriers are a challenge, it is encouraged to communicate with their teacher to explore potential solutions.

Alternatively, you can also try to find a teenager in your neighborhood who is willing to help your child once a week for a small amount.
