Education Event

Education Event – an introduction to the Dutch childcare and education system

Moving to a different country can be a very exciting and at the same a very stressful thing, especially if you have school age children. The number one issue for the parents becomes then finding a school for your child that fits best the needs of the child and the family.

Meerhoven Intrenationals Platform is organising in cooperation with local schools and kindergarten an Education Event, to provide information about the Dutch educational system and childcare to international parents. During the event, representatives of Meerhoven primary schools ‘t Slingertouw, Startbaan and the kindergarten Korein Kinderplein will all hold presentations in English about their child-care and education facilities and programs. After that there will also be time for questions.

You could learn about the new educational system and regulations, local habits, practicalities related to an ordinary school day.

When: Saturday, 23rd June, 9:30-12:30

Location: Korein Kinderplein Meerwater 17 (Shopping centre Meerhoven)

Korein Kinderplein has very generously agreed to provide free child care during the whole event for those who come together with their children.
