Mandatory Education in Belgium
I am an indian nation and moved to Brussels 4 yrs ago.
I have a daughter who is 2.5 and started going to a local french school. In the meanwhile we shifted our residence and moved near zaventum in March.
A bit unfortunate as my baby was enrolled in a school near brussels central.
Now, its a bit difficuly to find a school for this year as the classes are already full so my questions are,
a. is it ok if my daughter does not continue schooling till we get a school nearby to our new place because the travel time is too much and she suffers a bit more and gets tired.
b. is it mandatory to send a 2.5 yrs to maternelle or kindergarten. Will she loose a year if I get a admission next year, or the new school will directly move her to maternelle-2 as per her age bracket.
c. Me and my spouse speak dutch pretty well, so we are inclined to send her to a sutch local school, but I also want that my baby learns english. Is it possible in Dutch or French local schools in Belgium ?
d. Which schools are better in terms of infrastructure and facilities near zaventum,kortenberg or even evere for that matter.
Thanks in advance for your time and answers. I just dont want my child's education to hamper because of our move.
