Your Family in Greece

Moving to Greece with your family?

There is not yet a well-developed nursery school system in the country, and childcare remains one of the main concerns for families in Greece. Schooling only becomes compulsory at the age of six.

As a newcomer to Greece you have two options when it comes to education – either to enrol your children in a school operating within the Greek system (where specialist schools are an option at secondary level), or to send them to one of the many international 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 Greece. Information on having a baby in Greece is covered in detail in the Healthcare section.
