For instance, you can inform about how to enrol your child in a preschool education centre in:


Austria:             For public preschool education, the admission takes place at the municipal office (Gemeinde or Magistrat). For private education institutions, the admission takes place at the institution itself.

Czech Republic:           You must contact the appropriate pre-school care provider.

Croatia:             Each year, kindergartens determine and announce the time and conditions for admission. Enrolment is open throughout the school year if there are vacancies.

Germany:                       The admission takes place at the institution itself.

Hungary:          If you have a child older than three, younger than 6 years you have to enrol him/her to kindergarten. The municipality as the maintainer of the institutions notifies you 30 days before the enrolment process starts.

Serbia:               You can initiate the enrolment procedure electronically (eУслуга option) or in person.

Slovakia:          Look for the kindergartens in your neighbourhood and check their dates of registration and admission criteria.

Slovenia:          The admission into the pre-school education takes place at the institution (vrtec), regardless if it is a public or private institution. You can register your child all year round.
