We missed the first schedule of enrollment (March) due to our delayed arrival in Spain (June) so we got a schedule for the second batch of enrollment. From our appointment date up to enrollment, everytjing went without a hitch. We have a school. Thank you Sinead and Steps into Spain! More power to you
