Pre-schoolers are not of compulsory school age.

A child is of compulsory school age in the month of September in which your child turns 6 years old. Then the child is legally obliged to attend classes. Even if it remains in pre-primary education at that age, it is therefore, like any other child of compulsory school age, subject to regular attendance checks.



Spending an extra year in kindergarten, coming early to primary school and staying an eighth year in primary school is only possible in consultation and after advice from the principal and the CLB.

The students are obliged to follow all subjects and components. Due to health reasons, adjustments can be made in consultation with the director. The parents have the right to refrain from medical school supervision (MST), from individual CLB supervision. The refusal must always be in writing. When registering, the director informs the parents of this possibility and, if necessary, hands them the necessary forms.
