Education & Childcare
Childcare and educational opportunities for internationals in the Netherlands are broad and varied. This is why we cooperate with daycares, au pair agencies and schools that have international focus and which you, as an expat, might find suitable for your child. Amongst the rest of our Partners you will be able to find organisations that give general advice about the childcare and education of your child, provide pre-school and after-school activities and arrange Dutch courses (for adults too!).
It is more common these days to continue your higher education abroad. Many of our Partners also provide advice to adults with regards to the choice of their vocational or higher education.
