Are you relocating to the Netherlands? Maybe as a Dutch family who, after several years abroad, return to the Netherlands? Or are you coming to the Netherlands for the first time? Regardless of the background of your family, the education of your kids in case of a relocation to the Netherlands requires extra attention and planning. Edufax is ready to help you with that.
Relocating to the Netherlands: pick the right school
Before departure, you need to select a school in the Netherlands. And then you need to enroll your children there. Every situation is unique, and the school of choice needs to cater to the individual needs of the family. Returning families may end up in a different area than they have lived before. The children who went to school in the Netherlands before, may want to go back to their old school. But is that the most suitable option? Some already have a new school in mind. Others are unsure about the curriculum in the Netherlands. A broad overview of suitable options is needed. Our international education specialists will help you with just that.
Adjusting to the language
Are you going to relocate to the Netherlands? That often means a new language at school. This can be very scary for children. They may not understand everything in the beginning, or they are unable to express themselves as well as they could before. Dutch children returning, may need to go back to a Dutch school but have spoken English for years at their international school. Children of other nationalities may go to a bi-lingual, Dutch-only or English-only international school. In any of these situations, the children may have need for some extra language assistance pre-departure. This helps the children attend their new happily and confidently. Edufax provides specific pre-departure language courses, remedial teaching and educational tests to help your kids get a great start at their new school.
