Chossing right danish school for my children.

by Ewa

HI there, you blog is so helpful and helps me stay sane as I am going to move to Copenhagen in two months and have no idea where to start. Right now my biggest concern is how to pick a school for my 5 year old and daycare for 1.5 year old.


Any suggestions about how I should go about it? I can't afford an international school, but I have no idea how to pick the right danish elementary school at this point. How are they different, how can I learn more about their philosophy? what would you recommend?

Thanks,
Ewa

Ewa,

I am probably not going to be able to assist you much here, since I do not children who go to school in Denmark. You should contact the commune which you live in and talk with them about the various options you have. You can not enroll your children until you are registered in your kommune. I would also suggest joining some of the local expat groups and talking with other moms who have been in your situation. You can always switch daycares or schools if you find a better option. There are lots of expat groups in Copenhagen (such as LINK) and they have lots of women with children attending schools, so there you will get some first hand advice.
