Late Registration for Maternelle and Creche
My husband and I just found out this week that we will be moving from NYC to Brussels in early fall. We have two children, a daughter who just turned three in July and an 11 month old son. I'm starting to get worried as everything I read on the internet makes it sound like the registration process begins very early for daycare and pre-school.
What would you recommend for a family in our situation? We would like to use the public school system in our to best immerse our kids in the local language (French) and culture, but will likely not move to Belgium until early October. We are targeting Woluwe Saint Pierre or Woluwe Saint Lambert as my job will be in Zaventem. Neither one of us speak French, so we are having a hard time navigating the school websites. Have we missed the window of opportunity to register? Is a trip in August to Belgium merited simply to reserve a spot in a school or is that too late? Help!
