Q&A about school start and enrollment

Which year should my child start in school?

Schooling in Denmark begins in the kindergarten class.  Children entering Kindergarten Class must turn 6 years by 31st of December of the year they are to start.
There may be special considerations to take so that the start of school is postponed for one year, but you do not have to take this into consideration in this preliminary enrollment.

 

Language requirements

WISC accepts children of all nationalities from the age of 6.
Since the lessons will be taught mainly in English, it is an advantage but not a requirement that one of the child’s main language is English.
We advise that one of the parents is Danish-speaking, but it is not a requirement.

 

How big is the size of a class?

The classes in the international section are around 15-20 pupils.  A little less than the Danish-speaking classes.

All of the international classes will be based in the same buildings as their Danish parallel classes the Danish classes, allowing the international children to feel part of the whole school.

The International children are integrated with the Danish department during practical workshop lessons, play school, foreign language classes and a variety of events, projects and themes that are timetabled into the school year.

The school’s playground with all of its variety is a meeting place for children of the whole school.

 

Which classes do you have?

From 2019 we plan to start out with one International Kindergarten class.

If there are enough children to form an international class, 1 we will do so.

In the Danish-speaking department, we start out with one kindergarten classes and class 1 up to 5.
