There is more in you than you think

The Pre-Kindergarten programme is designed for children aged 3-4 to prepare for entry to UWC Maastricht Primary School. Students are enrolled for full-time studies
(Monday - Thursday, 8.10 - 14.45; Friday 8.10 - 11.45). There are a maximum of 16 students
in the class, with one teacher and two assistants.

Please note the following arrangements for Pre-Kindergarten

  • Students must be eligible to attend UWC Maastricht according to the Dutch Law for International Education
  • Priority is given to students who have already turned 3 years old at the beginning of the school year.
  • There is no automatic transition from Pre-Kindergarten to Primary. Students must apply to the Primary School with a complete application (including the application fee) no later than 3 months before your child turns 4 years old.
  • Children who turn 4 years old after October 1 will remain in the Pre-Kindergarten group for the remainder of the school year and will only move to Kindergarten (Primary School) at the beginning of the following school year. In such cases, the application for Primary should be submitted no later than 1 April.

You are welcome to arrange a visit with your child during the application process. Please contact to schedule an appointment.

Please complete the application for Pre-Kindergarten online (one application per child) and email all the required supporting documents.
