Find out whether your child needs to attend a reception class, get information on language screening, enrol your child in a municipal primary and lower-secondary school (folkeskole), or see a list of schools in Aarhus Municipality.
You enrol your child in school in the year before they start school in grade 0. See the most important dates here. Are you a new arrival from another municipality? Then your district school can help you.
Find our municipal primary and lower-secondary schools (folkeskole), see our other school services, and see the private and free schools located in Aarhus Municipality.
Starting school is the beginning of a new and important period in your child’s life. We can help you get off to a good start at school.
If your child has Danish as a second language, they may need support with developing their Danish language. We therefore carry out a language screening of your child before he or she moves from kindergarten to a municipal primary and lower-secondary school here in the municipality.
Do you wish for your child to be enrolled in a Danish public school (Folkeskolen) in Aarhus? And does your child have little or no knowledge of the Danish language? Then your child must attend a reception class before moving onto an ordinary class in a public school.
If your child is transitioning from private school to public school with Danish as a second language, support developing Danish language skills may be needed. For this reason, we carry out language screening assessments with your child before changing schools.
