Zippy’s Friends started in The Netherlands in January 2009, with a small pilot involving twelve schools in Rotterdam and The Hague.The foundation Kids and Emotional Competencies (KEC) was set up to manage the programme there, with the cooperation of GGD Rotterdam-Rijnmond, the municipal health service.

The programme is now growing gradually and expanding to new areas and is now being evaluated by the respected Trimbos Institute.
