Hi, I would be so grateful to be able to ask for your sound advice again. After finding a house and starting to create an utter mess by unpacking boxes, we have finally been offered two maternelle places after lots of chasing and calling. One is at Jardin d'Elise which is 5 mins walk from us and on the way to work from hubby - so he is happy. I am more leaning towards the other school which is Claire Joie in Etterbeek, but that is a good 20 mins walk or bus ride and out of the way. Any thoughts on either of these schools please? In a thread Jardin d'Elise was described as reasonable, but what does that mean? I know we can change schools later, but I would rather start with the better one straight away. And both want us to make a decision asap. So happy to have a place now, but want to make the right decision and it is hard without knowing anything.
Thanks so much again - hope all your children had a good start of the new school year!

I know mums with children at both, but I have to say the one with a child at Jardins d'Elise is far more enthusiastic. If you message me, I can provide you me emails of both mums.

Jardins d'Elise is in Ixelles, Claire-Joie is in Etterbeek. There are over 300 schools in Brussels, it isn't worth looking at these 2 schools just because they are mentioned here.
