Information for foreigners
The official language of instruction in state kindergartens is Czech.
Pre-primary education is compulsory from the beginning of the school year that follows a day, in which a child reaches his or her fifth year of age until the commencement of his or her compulsory schooling.
When filing an application, responsible personnel of the kindergarten are entitled to require an identification document of the child as well as that of the child´s legal representative, and a document of the child´s place of residence*.
* In case of foreigners these issues fall within the competence of the regional offices of the Department for Asylum and Migration Policy of the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic (e.g. authorization of residence, cancellation of information on the place of registered residence upon a proposal of a building´s owner, providing of information from the information system of foreigners, providing of information on foreigners registered for residence in a building at the request of a building´s owner).
