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
  • We are required by law to review eligibility requirements upon entry and also upon change of curriculum programme between Pre-Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary divisions. Families with children in the Pre-Kindergarten will be contacted in Spring to apply to the Primary School
  • Students must already be 3 years old at the beginning of the school year.
  • 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.

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.
