we are currently living in France and are considering a move to Germany (Hamburgh) within the next year or two. If anybody could help me plan towards this by answering a few questions, that would be lovely
My first question is about schools. I know they are compulsory in Germany (not so in France, and my dd is currently homeschooled as she reacted very badly to public school here). Are the schools therefore very good quality ? Or average ? What is the schedule like - by this I mean, do the kids end school early enough in the day, or do they end around 5pm, the way French school do ? Is it easy enough to find Montessori/alternative/international schools ? Here in France, two of my children and myself use the local music school for lessons. Is it easy/difficult to access music lessons in Germany ? (hmmmm this last question is probably silly....)
Are many moms SAHMs ? Or do most moms work ? I sahm, and I often feel lonely here, where the overwhelming majority of moms work.
If France we get about 300 euros each month from 'the system', because we have 3 children. Should we plan on dh getting an equivalent raise on moving, to compensate for the loss of this income, or does the German system also subsidize having children ?
I think that's about it for now
Thanks a lot for any answers !
