Day care centres and schools
You will find more detailed overview of the day care centres on Tartu City website. Private day care centre „Väike Pauliine" (Jakobi 15, phone: 7421779, e-mail: lapauliine [ät] hot.ee) accepts children from different nationalities, helps them to integrate and to adjust to Estonian society.
The International School in Tartu, which was opened in 2001, offers English language tuition to children from age 6 to 14. In September 2004, the separate group was launched for pre-school children from age 3 to 5. There is also a Finnish Language School in Tartu. For more detailed information please call tel. 740 0990.
In the event that tuition in one of the private institutions is not possible, but your child still needs tuition in English, you should contact the Tartu government education office, who will advise you on which school is most suitable for your child. The school will then devise an individual study plan for your child. As the number of English-speaking children in schools is growing, schools have become quite experienced in meeting the needs of children, who are coming from abroad. Parents may freely choose a school for their child if there are vacant places in the selected school. Any school is required to ensure educational opportunities for each child who resides in the school’s district area. Some schools do not have a district area and may accept pupils on the basis of admission tests or other requirements.
