  • Where do activities take place and where do I collect my child?
    As a rule, activities take place in the school Modular Building for PP & P1 children and at EuroKids Village for children P2 and up. You can collect your child at these locations after the activity is over.
  • How can I register for Extra Curricular Activities?
    Parents must be a member of the European School Frankfurt Parents’ Association to be able to apply for Extra Curricular Activities. Please login and go to the ECA section of our website: ESF Parents' Association - EuroKids Extra Curricular Activities Should you need further assistance, please contact us at
  • Can my child try out Extra Curricular Activities throughout the year?
    You can apply for Extra Curricular Activities throughout the school year. All mid-year activity registrations are subject to space being available and pedagogical considerations, e.g. how far other children in the activity have already progressed and whether it makes sense for a newcomer to join at that stage in time. New activity registrations made before the 20th of the month will be considered for the next month. New activity registrations can be cancelled until the 20th of the month. Please note that any cancellations after the 20th of each month will be charged for the remainder of the trimester.
  • How long does a registration for Extra Curricular Activities last? How can it be terminated?
    As a rule, Extra Curricular Activity registrations automatically renew themselves each school year, with the following exceptions: 1) if a child ages out of an activity, e.g. Early Musical Education for PP & P1 when the child enters P2 and 2) when the parent cancels the activity for the next trimester. The first trimester is September-December, the second trimester is January-Easter and the third trimester Easter-July. The cancellation deadlines are one week before the last school day prior to the Christmas Break, Easter break and Summer Break. We remind parents via email when cancellation deadlines are approaching. During the first 3 weeks of a school year, the Extra Curricular Activities can be cancelled any time.

  • How do I pay for Extra Curricular Activities?
    Extra Curricular Activities are calculated per year and payable over 10 equal monthly installments (from September to June). These payments are debited from the PA Member’s account in the month after the services have taken place. Parents will receive a SEPA notification mail detailing costs which will be debited from the account which was provided in your Parent Association membership application.
  • Who do I contact regarding invoices and financial bookings?
    Please contact our team at, we would be pleased to help you.
  • Are there times when activities do not take place?
    No activities take place on days when the ESF is closed, the last day before the Summer and Winter breaks and the first week of school after the Summer Break. We try to avoid cancellations (due to teacher illness etc.. ) during the school year wherever possible by providing lessons with substitute teachers. When this is not possible, childminding services are provided.
  • Will I still be charged if a certain activity does not take place?
    In cases where activities are cancelled during the school year without substitution, the fees for the Activity will not be charged as of the 3rd time the Activity does not take place. Childminding services are provided for children in the unlikely event of activities not taking place at no additional cost.
  • What happens if I am late picking up my child?
    After an activity has ended, those children not collected by parents are brought back to Childminding. For parents of children not registered with Childminding, additional costs will be charged if parents are late.
  • Do I have to do anything if I receive a mail that my child is on an activity waiting list?
    No. Our team will contact you as soon as a place becomes available in your child’s chosen activity. If the group remains fully booked and we receive enough interest for an activity we may contact you with the opportunity to join a new activity group at a different time.
  • Why are Sports Activities not taking place earlier, directly after school?"
    Space is limited and EuroKids is very fortunate that the ESF offers its sports facilities for EuroKids Extra Curricular Activities after 16.00. Prior to this time the sports hall is being used for regular school sports lessons for secondary students.
  • What equipment does my child need to bring for the activities?
    Parents will be informed via e-mail if there is anything their child needs to bring with them. This information is also included in the activity descriptions on our website. As a general rule: For language and music activities, the teachers will tell the children about the required books, materials and instruments. For sports, dance and performance activities the children need to wear appropriate sport clothing and bring a bottle of water. Special uniforms (e.g. for Judo) can be bought via the EuroKids administration team. For activities that take place in the sports hall, only shoes with white soles are allowed. For robotics and ICT, the teachers will provide instructions on any required software and additional material to be purchased. For creative activities, the teachers will provide information about any required materials. EuroKids provides a significant amount equipment for the activities. There is also an annual budget for new purchases and replacements.
  • What are Open Days?
    Some activities host Open Days, which are performances or exhibitions that parents are invited to watch. We will inform you via email if there is an upcoming Open Day in your child’s activity. Some activity groups or activity teachers also perform during the annual Summerfest. If this is the case, parents will also be informed ahead of time.
  • Am I charged if my child is ill or has a long-lasting health issue that prevents them from participating?
    If your child is unable to attend for whatever reason, please inform us via email. In the event of a short-term illness, e.g. a cold or a child is feeling unwell that day, the price of the activity will be charged as normal. In the event of a long-term health issue, e.g. a broken arm which prevents a child from participating in sports activities, we will not charge parents if they provide us with a doctor’s certificate. If there is covid infection and quarantine or an absence due to a high-risk family member, absences that last for one month will be treated as a “long term health issue” without a charge subject to doctor´s certificate submission.
  • Why might an activity be cancelled during the school year?
    EuroKids is a non-profit organisation. In order to sustainably offer services to ESF families, we must ensure that activities are at least break-even and do not incur losses. If an activity does not meet the minimum level of participants, either the activity price must be increased or the activity needs to be cancelled. 18. How can I give my feedback to EuroKids on the quality of the provided services? Your feedback on how we may better benefit the children is always warmly received. We appreciate any opportunity to improve the quality of our services. Please send us your feedback at
  • How long is the waiting list valid for?
    When your child is on the waiting list for an activity e.g. Tennis, this waiting list will be retained for the period of one school year e.g. 2020-2021. In case your child is interested in tennis the next school year 2021-2022 and is still on the waiting list (was not confirmed for Tennis and did not attend) then you will need to register your child again for the next school year.
