My name is Darren George. My wife and i have 2 kids (4yrs & 2yrs) and we are considering moving to the Netherlands.
Although my office is based in Rotterdam we are considering whether we would need to send our kids to a local or an international school. The kids can only speak English, my wife and I can speak Afrikaans.
Anyone else been through this and could make a recommendation?
If i need to have a longer commute to work that's OK. I want to do what's best for my kids.
I did find the website http://www.sio.nl which is good but wondering whether to go local? would they quickly learn Dutch.
Also assume that my wife and i would consider taking up some Dutch classes.
Last but not least (and i bet area dependant) what would the cost of living be for a family of 4?
I've seen alot of threads on this topic but pretty outdated. There is always https://www.numbeo.com that helps a bit but i think it's best to hear direct from the community on this site.
Any South Africans Groups i could join? would be great to know where most stay and to meet at some point should we make the final move.
Thank you in advance to anyone that responds!
