One of the most important aspects when relocating overseas with children is their education and schooling. So we wanted to be educated about the elementary schools in Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. There's good news--there are many schools to choose from. You just have to decide which ones are right for your kids.
Many schools offer Spanish and English courses and will fit your children needs and personality. Private schools in Tulum and Playa Del Carmen are affordable, and most people who can afford to send their kids to private school do.
Once you have chosen a few schools that might be great for your children, you should set up interviews for them and also arrange for your children to sit in on a few classes.
Note! Regardless of the Spanish level of your children, they will be placed in classrooms by age, so they can catch up faster and make new friends easily.
We are creating a full list and a directory of schools for use in our book, so I'll post the details as soon as possible.
Edit: we did it! you can see a complete listing of PLAYA DEL CARMEN Elementary Schools here.
No website or company has paid a fee to be mentioned in this blog. Any suggestions you see are based solely on our own experiences and personal preferences.
Just a middle-class family with three young kids, looking to escape the rat race. This is our journey!
