A school year is divided in two terms, the first term from the 1st of Sep. till the 31st of Jan. and the second term from the 1st of Feb. till the 30th of June. The main holidays are in July and August. Students receive school reports after each school term.
There are not enough public kindergartens and it is not easy to enroll your child in one so the private sector is becoming more and more popular. The monthly fee ranges from 300 up to 900 EUR depending on the quality of activities. Some kindergartens use English exclusively, many teach it as a second language.
