Shortage of school places for international children in Amsterdam

shortage of school places in Amsterdam

We have all heard and read that while many companies in Amsterdam are encouraged to hire highly skilled workers from abroad, there is a shortage of school places for the children of their future employees.

Are you experiencing this tough situation as well? If so, then ask New2nl for help!

We have outstanding insight into the various school options available: international, bilingual or Dutch.

For most schools in the Amsterdam region the summer vacation starts on July 15th, so make sure you have everything sorted for the next school year before this date!

The Municipality of Amsterdam is working hard to find a solution to the lack of school places, but till then the competition for places is fierce. So don’t wait too long!

We offer different packages to suit your needs. Check out our website for more information: https://new2nl.com/education-services.

Best wishes,
