Free video call on education in the Netherlands FOR REFUGEES OF THE UKRAINIAN WAR

New2NL truly sympathizes with the families who have fled the war in Ukraine. 

I hope that you’ll feel welcome in your new country, and that you’ll find your feet soon, despite all awful things happening around you.

To the parents who have managed to reach the Netherlands, I offer a free 15-minute video call to talk about the school options for their children. Dutch – international – temporary – longer term; there is a lot to consider. I am happy to help.

Book your FREE ad hoc call here (for the value of € 45).

Of course you may also book the all-inclusive package. In this case I will offer a € 45 discount. More info about all school advisory packages you can find on the Families page.

Take care everyone! We all wish that this nightmare is over soon.

Watch our latest webinar on the Dutch education system, and read some articles on your school options on our website.


From on-site presentations to one-to-one services, we’ll guide your employees in the best that Dutch schooling has to offer.


Let’s make sure your kids get the best schooling experience the Netherlands has to offer.

Hi, I’m Annebet van Mameren

My mission is to help families navigate the Netherlands with confidence. It started early, meeting people from all over the world while my mom taught them Dutch as a second language.

Later on, I wrote a thesis on intercultural conflicts at work. Marrying an American and bringing up 2 bilingual kids solidified my involvement in the international community.

Today I specialise in navigating the Dutch education system, an essential part of settling in for internationals. I also run Guide2nl, bringing my clients a unique partner network that can cover every aspect of turning the Netherlands into ‘home’
