Starting school is a very exciting event for all children and also represents an important step in their development.
In Germany, children start school at an average age of 6 years.
The celebration is an experience for the whole family. The children receive a so called "Zuckertüte", which can be filled with school utensils such as pencils or an eraser, toys and candy.
Often, new school children are also accompanied by their siblings and grandparents on this day.
The celebration usually takes place in the auditorium or in the schoolyard. Songs are sung, speeches are given, and teachers welcome their new students. Parents also have a chance to ask questions and find out more information about the school day The classroom can also be visited and the new teacher has a chance to introduce him/herself.
Our Family and Health Team also offers assistance in finding schools and kindergartens.
