Education & childcare


When relocated to another country, the topic of education is an important matter to arrange.
Finding a suitable day care or school for your children and your final choice in these will depend on several things; will you stay for a short period of time, or longer ? Do you have young children who can learn Dutch quickly and will thrive at a local school, or teenagers who probably prefer international or bilingual education?

In the Twente area you can choose from Dutch, bilingual (English/Dutch) and international schools, some only for primary and others for secondary education or both.

In the Netherlands the after school activities like sports or music classes aren’t always arranged by the schools. So what to do and where to find the information?
In this section you’ll find the proper information and some inspiration on child care, schools and after school activities so you’ll get the full picture.
