In general, kindergartens in the Czech Republic provide a pre-school education that is not compulsory and is designed for children from the age of three years as a rule. A director of a kindergarten determines the place, the date and time for submitting applications for admissions of children to the pre-school institution for the next school year and publishes it in a way common in the place.
Information on admission procedure can be obtained directly at the particular kindergarten, the web address: www.zapisdoms.brno.cz (in Czech only), or at the Education, Youth and Sport Department of Brno City Municipality.
We know that networking helps best when searching for recommendations. Facebook group English Speaking Mums in Brno and Kurim is a good place for expat parents to exchange advice and information regarding their children’s activities, schools, and more.
