To nursery school

Children can attend nursery school as soon as they turn 2.5 years of age. Each year, there are various dates at which they can start school. Register your child in advance! Was your child born in 2017 or earlier? Then register it now, even if it isn't due to start school until 1 September 2020.

Nursery school caters for children between the ages of 2.5 and 6 years. Nursery education is important for your child's development as this is where it will learn to play with other children, to work independently, learn new words, motor skills and plenty more.

Nursery school is not compulsory. Compulsory education only starts in the year your child turns 6 years of age.


My child was born in November - December 2017. Should I register it already?

Yes. If your child was born in 2017, you should register it now, even if it is not due to start school until 1 September 2020. What if you decide to wait? The longer you wait, the fewer the places!

My child is going to school already. Do I still need to register it for next school year?

No. Once your child is registered in a school it will remain registered there. Registrations are valid for all the elementary school grades.

Is your child due to go from 3rd infants to the 1st grade of primary school? Or would you like to send it to a different school? In that case, you may have to register your child again.
