Paperwork 101

This two-hour workshop is aimed at parents-to-be, who perhaps don’t speak great German or just don’t really understand the piles of paperwork that the German system seems to throw at them once they find out they’re pregnant!

We will go through the formalities that need to be taken care of during pregnancy and after the birth of your baby, what you’re entitled to and how to claim your entitlements (i.e. Kindergeld and Elterngeld). There will also be an opportunity to ask questions.

The workshop fee is 25 Euro for an individual and 40 Euro per couple.

NEW: Get Schoolwise: Finding the best fit school for your famiiy (A collaboration with Linden Education)

Whether you are just moving to Berlin or if you have been here for 10 years, trying to understand the jungle of options in Berlin schools can be incredibly overwhelming.
After all, this decision will impact your child’s linguistic development, their social environment, and even your work commute and schedule. But have no fear, you have a lot of great options – all with different advantages.
Having worked as a school psychologist in the bilingual and international schools in Berlin over the past 15 years, Christina Limbird will share her unique perspective on the educational landscape of the city.
