Are you a child of academically schooled parents, earning good money, owning a nice house in a well to do neighborhood? Then you get a head start in life. A head start in everything.

In daycare, kids learn to cooperate, to empathize and to be independent. Important life lessons that their less fortunate peers do not encounter until primary school. Daycare facilities, kindergarden, schools and other institutions report unequal opportunities for children and the societal injustice this results in. In the Netherlands, all children have equal opportunities. But how equal are those opportunities, when a privileged group gets an easy head start? On a related note: if you are a school, how and where do you find personnel that is savvy of the challenges of modern day education? Any of this sounds familiar? Bourne loves to face those challenges with you. Give us a call.
