Netherlands

Headquartered in the Netherlands, the Bernard van Leer Foundation has a long history of working in the country on early learning methodologies, access to childcare and preventing child abuse. In recent years we have developed a strong advocacy presence on issues such as paternity leave and quality of child services, in partnership with other civil society organisations, local governments and the private sector.

Our Parents+ programme will partner with health and social welfare services to improve their capacity to support parents as part of their work – with a specific focus on low income families and refugees.

Urban95 is also a natural fit in a country renowned for its expertise in architecture and city planning.
