For parents, open days (in Czech Den otevřených dveří) can be an important first step in educating your child in the Czech Republic. They take place at private, and state schools as well as universities and higher-education institutions throughout Prague and the Czech Republic. A number of open days are scheduled during the first part of the year.
Open days invite potential students to take tours of the schools, sometimes given by students themselves, or the opportunity to sit in on a lesson. All of them give parents the chance to meet and talk to teaching staff as they explore options for educating their children in the Czech Republic.
These are just a few of the upcoming open days taking place in Prague, however a list of citywide events (in Czech) can be seen here. Don’t worry — if you miss the opening day, many schools will host additional open-day events in 2020 or allow you to make an appointment anytime throughout the year.
