Activities for Kids in Spain



Expat children have access to world-class education through various international schools in Spain. At the same time, opportunity for safe and healthy recreational activities may be enjoyed.

A typical international or independent school in Spain is co-educational and run by Catholic priests. When deciding among a range of schools, an expat will have to consider where exactly in Spain the family would prefer to settle.

In the major cities such as Barcelona and Madrid, there are a good number of English-speaking schools attended by students ages 3-18. And then there are British, French, German, Swedish and other nationalities running their own schools in different parts of the country. All of these schools operate with permission from each of their embassies. Typical school days are from Monday through Friday with weekends completely off.

They will be thrilled to no end with any of the country's wide range of amusement parks, including Casa de Campo in Madrid, Tibidabo in Barcelona and Port Aventura just a few kilometers from Placa Catalunya. Children who are fascinated by marine life can marvel at dolphin and sea lion performances in Majorca's Marineland where they can also find the most number of sharks in Europe.
