Arrange an enrolment examination

Description

Before your child is allowed to go to school, he or she must have been examined by a medical officer.
During an enrolment examination, tests on language, motor skills (movement) and level of knowledge are carried out in order to assess your child's level of development.

The doctor physically examines your child and a hearing and an eye test are performed. The school medical examination is required by law.
