Hello I have just moved to rojales with my partner and my children will come over in a few weeks would be nice to hear from anyone around here. I'm a bit worried about the children and starting school.

Thanks

What age are the children?
They will find it all quite strange at first I suppose, especially as they'll have a very long summer holiday to begin with, but language wise they will most likely (depending on age) adapt much quicker than you will.
If you're in a residential area with pool that's the place to go to make the first contacts. Don't forget that timetables are very different here so there's no use in going at 9:00am because even if it's open (which it probably won't be) no one will be there, at least no Spanish kids will.
A good timetable is 12:00 - 15:00 lunch at 15:30 - 16:00. Little kids will have a nap, but the older ones won't. They'll probably be watching the telly, playing video games or doing "homework" (lots of people buy a summer book of school work). In the evening/ night kids will be around until late, around midnight easily.
