Schools - Assuming you're talking about state schools, I'm not aware of any primary schools that teach in English (could be wrong though); I've heard of secondary schools that are dual-language, but the proviso was that the child had to speak Dutch to be accepted.  I wouldn't worry about it though; when we first moved there, our twins didn't speak a word of Dutch and within a month or so, they were fine; after a year you couldn't tell they hadn't lived there all their lives.

Kids allowances - assuming you mean "Kinderbijslag"; my understanding is that you have to be paying into the "Social Funds" to get it; the link (it's in Dutch - sorry) tells you all about it.

Can't help with the 30% tax exemption - sorry.
