We are moving to Brussels from Slovenia in Decembre, to Avenue des Volontaires, Etterbeek. We have a 6-years old daughter and we were adviced (since she is not fluent in French or English) to put her in a public school. We want her to start January 2015! We are visiting Brussels next week and have appointments with the following schools: - Ecole Claire Joie - Joli-Bois primaire - Intstitut Sainte-Anne - Centre scolaire du Blankdelle Unfortunatelly a lot of schools are full in first grade primary, nevertheless, can you please advise on the above listed schools? Also does anybody have any experience with enrolling a child that does not speak the language?
Since no one else has put it on yet, you could do a lot worse than get in touch with the bct https://bctbelgium.org for all sorts of advice on schools. I'm not actually in Brussels so not familiar with them.
Regarding children with languages, you see a lot of threads on here about that. My dd started local nederlands school at 2.5 yr not knowing any dutch and now at 4 is getting on very well. That seems to be a reasonable consensus - takes about a year.
