Coming with kids: nursey schools and schools

In general, children stay at home until the age of 1.5 years. Until then families receive the parental benefit and one of the parents can stay home. Most day-care centres do not accept children younger than 1 year. Children under the age of 3 attend the day nurseries (mostly private) and the age of 3-7 nursery schools (municipal and private). Children start school at the age of 7.

In nursery schools the parents pay for the cost of meals as well as for a tuition fee. Additionally, babysitters can be found with the help of friends, agencies or through newspaper advertisements.

There are 5 local and 6 international nursey schools close to Tallinn University of Technology for children aged 2-7.

Please contact to International Staff Centre to get more information about nursey schools and schools. We will find the best solution for your family´s needs.
