Welcome to New Kids in Denmark

It is no secret. Denmark is a great place to be a kid. And it is a great place to be a parent.

Denmark consistently ranks near the top of the list when it comes to great places to raise a family. But for those of us who did not grow up here, there are many surprises and unexpected frustrations that can arise when navigating Danish cultural norms.

About Me

My name is Chava Sanderson. I moved to Denmark with my Danish husband in 2008, and my parenting journey started about 10 years ago. Not only did I suddenly need to figure out how to take care of our new little family member, I also quickly realized that I knew nothing about raising a child in Denmark. Over the past 10 years, I have learned a lot about giving birth in Denmark, maternity leave, the Danish childcare system, and the Danish school system. I started New Kids in Denmark to provide the help to international families that I wish I had access to when I started my own journey in Denmark.
