Your Family in Denmark

Moving to Denmark with your family?

In Danish culture, parents are not considered to be the only ones responsible for their child, and local authorities offer a lot of help and advice to parents. Children whose first language is not Danish receive mandatory language stimulation training at school and pre-school.

As a newcomer to Denmark you have two options when it comes to education – either to enrol your children in a school operating within the public school system (Folkeskole), or to send them to one of the English, French or German international private elementary schools in the country. Outside of school hours there is enough to keep kids from toddlers to teenagers busy, and you’ll find more details on both in this section.

Is your family situation about to change? Here you’ll find all you need to know about the legal requirements for getting married in Denmark. Information on having a baby in Denmark is covered in detail in the Healthcare section.
