We are happy to announce that EuroKids services are planned to resume with the 2020-2021 new school year. The health and safety of the children remains our top priority and we will be introducing additional hygiene measures in light of current circumstances. Parents registered for EuroKids services will be contacted regarding specifics for their children.
Although EuroKids, as a childcare institution, is subject to looser hygiene regulations than schools we will be ensuring that our health and safety practices go over and above the statutory regulations and mirror that of the ESF as much as practicable.
We will be doing our best to ensure services resume as normally as possible for the children and stand prepared to react flexibly to any potential changes to state regulations and ESF guidelines.
Wishing you and your family a healthy start to the school year.
Your EuroKids Team.

The Parents’ Association of the European School Frankfurt is the formal voice of parents with children at the school. We represent the interests of all ESF children, without discrimination. Our prime aim is to secure a happy and healthy learning environment in which they can thrive, and realise their full academic potential.
Our Parents’ Association is a registered non-profit organisation, founded by a General Assembly held on 24 June 2002, which also adopted the statute providing the basic framework in which we work. An elected Board is responsible for managing PA affairs. To become a member, please use the Application for Membership form.
What do we do?
We speak for their needs and interests at two main levels. In Frankfurt, we are present at meetings of the Administration Board, which determines how the school functions on a daily basis. Parents also have their say on the Pedagogical Committees, which set the tone for the teaching work. In Brussels, at the heart of the European School system, we are members of Interparents. This is the umbrella organisation which represents the Parents’ Associations of all 12 European Schools on the ultimate Board of Governors.
Certain activities of the PA are only available to members. To join the PA, please complete the Application for Membership form.
Please note that we cannot comment or advise on school admissions. Please contact the ESF Secretariat with any such enquiries.
After-school care and holiday activities
The Parents’ Association though its wholly owned subsidiary EuroKids gGmbH organises childminding/homework supervision, extracurricular activities, holiday camps and school buses for all ESF pupils to take the burden off working parents.
The Parents’ Association organises several events during the school year, such as the Christmas Bazaar, the summer event, and the Primary Disco. More ideas are planned, for fun and fund-raising purposes!
Improvements to the Library
The Parents’ Association works with the school to improve our libraries. PA volunteers did an enormous amount of work setting up the primary library.
In addition, we organise readings in the primary library by fantastic children’s authors.
