People from all walks of life took part in the training course. For example, one man from India, who had been living and working in Estonia for a year, had decided to relocate his wife and two little children here. They came to take part in the programme all together to learn how to find a kindergarten for their children, how to choose a school for them later, and what children’s rights and parents’ obligations are. In their turn, the kids had plenty of fun activities, which gave them knowledge about Estonian culture, nature and traditions.
They could also study the map of Estonia and learn about the country’s most common birds and animals, watch videos of the song and dance festivals and learn how Christmas, Independence Day, St John’s Day, St Martin’s Day and other holidays are celebrated here.
One of the participants was a woman from France who was planning to bring her pre-school daughter to Estonia. She came to the training course to better understand what the process would look like, what kind of a school system she could expect for her daughter, whether she would be able to ensure her child’s adaptation was as smooth as possible and how to do it.
