The English section

You are on the English part of the website of the NVvTO, the Dutch Home Education Association. Most of the content is written in Dutch and there is no one-on-one translation. In this section you will find the most important information on homeschooling in the Netherlands. If you need some specific information that is not translated and Google translate doesn't help, you can also contact us through the contact form to ask us.

The sub-menu for the English content is displayed on the left/above.


NVvTO stands for "Nederlandse Vereniging voor ThuisOnderwijs" which translates to: Dutch Home Education Association. You can learn more about what we do here.
